Organizando suas fitas e linhas

Quem não tem problemas pra organziar as fitas de cetin, ou as linhas de ponto cruz??? Eu sempre tento coisas novas pra isso, até rolinhos de papel daquelas máquinas de calcular antigas. Mas olha que ideia interessante que eu vi lá na nossa amiga da Suécia... E ainda não sabem porque sou apaixonada por ela??? Olhem as cores e os materiais diversos que ela usa!!!

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. :-)
