Beautiful trims, ribbons and lace is fun to use when you’re crafting, sewing or wrapping gifts. My trim stash has been a total mess up to now, all tangled together and no order at all. It’s been hard to get a proper overview.
As so often before I found the solution via an image on Pinterest. The picture led me to the site Instructables (a great source of inspiration, by the way!) and there I found a description on how to use TicTac containers for a smart ribbon storage solution. Ingenious! Luckily I have a husband who likes mints and I was able to lay my hands on a bunch of TicTac’s really cheap at our local grocery store.
I poured the TicTac tablets into a large jar and pimped the jar with some washi tape (nothing may remain unembellished, you get that right?). ;-)
It just so happens that TicTac containers are quite narrow and some of my trims simply didn’t fit. I solved this by cutting out pieces of cardboard and wrapped the wider trims around them. I pinned down the ends with sewing needles. I wrapped tiny trim scraps around a chopstick instead.
I’m very happy with the result. And as a reward for doing such a good job, I treated myself to some new trims (and some new washi tape) from Etsy … Now I’m just waiting for the delivery.
