Ribbons Galore

Where is your ribbon?

I know Amanda now has a ribbon jar, which I love.



And Rachel has a whole rack/wall full of ribbon, which I am jealous of.


And I have a paper towel holder. (Keep reading…)

I love ribbon and I’m sure it started when I had long hair and played soccer and basketball. One of my favorite things was to pick out what ribbon I was going to wear for the big game. Okay, I did love to play sports, but a good tight hairdo was a must.

Off track – but getting back on…Now, older, shorter hair…I love ribbons for gift wrapping. They can just add a sense of uniqueness and pop to any gift. But I hated my ribbons getting wrinkly, then I would have to iron them - am I the only ironer of ribbons?!


So I think I found a creative way to use an old paper towel holder. Unfortunately these paper towel holders aren’t just anywhere but I’m glad there was another use for them because between you and me – it stinks as a paper towel holder.

Now my ribbons sit pretty.


What works for your ribbon?! I’m linking this to Kristen’s Works for Me Wednesday Party where just last week I not only gave away my first giveaway but I also won my first giveaway!


A beautiful jar filled with fun ideas for kids over the summer. You can check out Eileen’s other cute jars at her Etsy Shop
