I have tried many things with my ribbon storage dillema from boxes/bags with holes in them to wrapping them around cards. It always ended the same - with them stuffed into a drawer and jar in a tangled mess. I cannot tell you how easy this has made my life - as I LOVE ribbon - I now can see all the ribbon I have and easily use it. No more double purchases. No more digging through ribbon to find matches - its all at my finger tips. Pleasant side effect - I walk into my scrap space and the ribbon beckons me and my creativity gets a kick start. I would and have totally recommended this product to my friends.
The ribbon organizer is the best I've seen: very well made, holds a huge amount of spools and pieces, and eliminates the problem of removing several spools from a dowel to get to the one you want. I could not believe the Twelve Days of Christmas price of just $9.99. I bought only two so I could share, but now wish I had bought more at that price. The Scrapbook.com Twelve Days of Christmas sale had the best craft shopping bargains I have ever seen, and not just "kits" or "collections" but items you'd really want at unbelievable prices! Let's make this a holiday tradition Scrapbook.com.
Sorry this has taken me so long to respond. I had a difficult area to hang this in and it took my special "handyman" to help me. We just hung it and I am so pleased to eliminate the boxes I previously had my ribbons stored in. They are now organized according to color and are up and out of the way, thus allowing for more work space! Not only is this item very functional but, it looks great in its new color of white ( thanks to my "handyman") next to my white cabinets. I would recommend this to fellow organizers.
