How to Use Spool & Store Ribbon Storage

I hope you enjoyed that video!  Isn’t that Spool & Store cool?  I thought so! 🙂


I had some questions about this system so here are some answers… I measured the individual containers and they are 5 5/8″ long, 1 1/4″ high and 1 3/4″ deep.  Here’s some info from their site: Each Ribbon Dispenser has 6 compartments (7/8″ wide) which will hold up to 4 yards of ribbon, depending on the thickness of the ribbon.

Happy Crafting!

  5. I think I like this!!! My ribbon is just in a box (no eyelets!). Might help solve my problem! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I need one of these. Not only does it keep your ribbon organized but they will take up so much less space since you don’t have that big empty space in the middle of the roll.

  10. That is too cool! I just have all my ribbon stored in a plastic storage bag (a set of sheets came in it) but this would take up way less space. Santa, are you listening? LOL!

  14. Ok I went and PAID ATTENTION this time to the video.. ok you didn’t drop enough ahhaha and you needed to drop it from like a higher place.. what if fell off the top of the car.. how does it land on asphalt? huh . .. enquiring minds.. ahhahahahhahahahhaha they almost Joy-proofed the container. That’s my great laugh for the day!
    I do like to pretend I’m organized.

  18. now that looks like a useful product! I made a photo box ribbon storage unit based on your tutorial, and the thing that is not so good about it is that you can’t see how much ribbon is left… I may have to get these, then use my box to store those plastic containers in it!

  25. Thanks for sharing, Joy. You are so funny and down to earth. I love watching your videos and learning about new ways to help me stay more organized and to be more creative! Thanks!

  26. I have my ribbon spools on a skewer, but this is not working well for me… this however looks like it could solve a lot of problems.

  27. Pretty cool, thanks for sharing ….I hate when I drop my ribbon storage, what a mess….

  44. hrscrapper says:

    Thank you for sharing this neat tool. I’m going to the website right now. I have ribbon EVERYWHERE. What a great solution.

  45. Pretty neat !! Thank you for the info.

  46. Hey, Joy! Just watched this video and the system looks like a good deal! However, I loved your photo box system, too! As for it falling apart when dropped, how about two large rubber bands crisscrossed over the closed box? Easy to remove when you want to add/remove the ribbon, but keeps the lid on if dropped. Just a thought… Have a great day! Blessings to you!

  47. patriciao73 says:

    That is a pretty neat storage box. I have been wanting to organize my ribbon and sort of looking around for the best storage solution. Right now my ribbon is just sitting in a plastic container. I will have to go visit their website and check it out. Thanks for sharing!
