In this blog post, I will discuss strategies and techniques for properly storing ribbon and mesh to preserve their quality and ensure they remain in prime condition for your future creations.


Use Spool Holders:

Spool holders or racks are ideal for organizing and storing your ribbon spools and mesh rolls. By placing spools on holders, you can prevent them from unravelling and becoming tangled. Opt for a wall-mounted rack or a tabletop stand to keep your supplies neatly arranged and easily visible.


Wrap on Cardboard:

For loose ribbon or mesh that is not on spools, consider wrapping them around cardboard or craft sticks to keep them neatly coiled and prevent tangling. Secure the ends with tape or rubber bands to maintain their shape and make them easier to store.


Hang on Pegboards:

Pegboards are a versatile storage solution for hanging your ribbon and mesh collections. Install a pegboard on a wall in your craft space and use hooks or dowels to hang spools and rolls of ribbon and mesh. This method allows for easy access and keeps your supplies organized and visible.


 Avoid Direct Sunlight and Moisture:

When storing your ribbon and mesh, it's essential to keep them away from direct sunlight and moisture. Exposure to sunlight can cause fading, while moisture can lead to mold or damage to the materials. Store your supplies in a cool, dry place to maintain their quality and longevity.


By incorporating these storage tips into your organizational routine, you can effectively preserve the quality of your ribbon and mesh and prevent tangling and damage between uses. A well-organized storage system will not only protect your supplies but also make your crafting process more efficient and enjoyable.
