I LOVE ribbon...love to buy, love to use, love to collect, but storing has ALWAYS been a huge problem for me. I have tried a number of other products, but was unhappy with all of them. Then I saw this bag. I ordered it immediately. When I got it in the mail and opened the box I looked at it and thought "okay this isn't what I pictured, but oh well". First tip I can give you is to use a hair dryer on a medium heat to get the folds out of the clear plastic and smooth out the sides. Works great!!! After I did that I began filling in the bottom holes with ribbons. I can truly say it was like Christmas. I didn't know I had so many ribbons. They were everywhere in my scrappy bins. Now they are very nicely organized, I can see them all. And the next thing I did after all my ribbons were organized...went out and bought more ribbons! I organize mine kind of by color/holidays. There is room in the bag for ALOT of ribbon, I am hoping to have it full by next month.
I was so excited to receive this a few days ago!! I purchased it with my winning shopping spree gift cert...Thanks SB.com!! Anyway, this is absolutely adorable when filled, and it's made from very high quality materials. Like many of you, I'd tried various types of storage solutions, only to be disappointed. I had a drawer jam packed with ribbon and I was able to free up that space by putting all my ribbon into this little purse. The lid also has an internal pocket for scissor storage. One word of advice....start filling from the bottom and work your way up. This is one of those great products I wish I'd invented....like velcro or the rolling suitcase!! I would highly recommend this to all ribbon junkies!!
I love ribbon, but always forgot which ones I had because I had them stored in a small box and the box was stored in my rolling cart. With the Pull-Ez I can see all of my ribbons right away and they are always ready to use. I was amazed at how much ribbon the purse holds and it looks supercute! I chose the black purse because it was the first one that was available, but since all of my scrapping bags are black, it matches everything nicely. I found it a little pricey, but I know it will last me forever!
I LOVE this bag! I filled one and will be purchasing another. Sturdy and easy to fill. Don't worry, even though the holes are small, a 2" ribbon will easily fit.
One word of advice - start filling from the bottom of the bag with your widest ribbon and work your way to the top holes with your skinny ribbons. My super skinny ribbons I fed through the holes that are almost underneath the zipper. I also group mine by theme/color - Disney, Holidays, sports, reds/oranges, blues/greens, etc.
