A few people commented on the pics of my craft room yesterday so I thought I would share more. When you craft being organised is essential but you don't have to spend a fortune on fancy storage solutions.
I collect ribbon and fabric fanatically and in order not to become completely snowed under by it I have solutions!
This is an ikea christmas decoration stand, cost 1.99 and holds my latest and fav ribbons.
It sits on top of my new "shelves"..
Then there is the drawer of satin ribbon rolls they were a bulk by off ebay a few years ago. I think they came from china and cost about £8 inc postage! I had no choice in colours but they come in handy for all sorts of things, and never seem to run out!!
Then this is my new storage solution, I buy loads of ribbon by the metre and ended up with a drawer crammed full but could never find what I wanted. So large sheet of card cut into 3" squares (I used some corraged card that was packaging from an ikead lampshade!) and a mountain of elastic bands, one evening sat in front of telly and ta da....
This is two fabric boxes from Ikea £3.05 ea, on their sides (they come in black or pink)
Each fabric is put into a press and seal bag, that way when I use part of it I can put the remainder AND any offcuts back in the bag, no more bags of odd scraps!!
