Ribbon Storage Solutions from the Kitchen

I never get tired of seeing kitchen tools re-purposed as creative storage solutions. These two counter-top clutter busters do just that without sacrificing any style.

Spools of ribbon stay wrangled inside the straw dispenser, and they’re easy accessible when stacked on a paper towel roll holder. Best of all, both options offer plenty of colourful eye candy for your crafty corner.

    These are fabulous ideas! I love how they fit the smaller ribbon spools and the big ones. We have tons of small ribbons everywhere and are always looking for better ways to organize them. Love the paper towel holder idea better but wish they fit the smaller ribbons {holes}. Maybe I can figure out a way to make the straw holder stand upside down and wouldn’t have to worry about opening/closing the lid to get the ribbons out 🙂

    The paper towel holder is just genius.
