I FINALLY got all my ribbon (well most of it) organized :-)

First off let me say I got the idea for making this from Kimberly @ Craftspotbykimberly You can find her post where she shows you how to make her handmade ribbon holder HERE.

The original product you can find at Ribbon Ring this is such a WONDERFUL product!!!

I have so much ribbon that I wanted to try to make it myself to save myself some money. It took a good amount of time, but was well worth it. But if you don't want to spend the time, I really suggest you purchase them from Ribbon Ring as it really is an ingenious idea  :-)

I made mine out of stencil sheets. I used the cut file on Kimberly's blogged and was able to cut a bunch out on one stencil sheet and then had to poke out the holes which was a pain. lol! But it was worth it. It was a VERY time consuming project, but I'm so glad with the way it turned out.

below are some pictures from when I was cutting all the ribbon holders out with my cricut

And when it was all done......  :-)

Thanks for looking  :-)

Thank you for sharing. This is a wonderful idea. I don't have as much ribbon as you, but I'm always looking for organization ideas. Besides, I think it looks nice as well. Thanks again, Cindy.

Samantha...I have been looking for a way to organize mine and I forgot about this method. I saw this system somewhere long time ago, maybe it was from Kimberly too. I do not remember, lol.

where did you get the blank stencil sheets? if you do not mine me asking. I think maybe those plastic folders might work too, right?
