Ribbon Carousel Holiday Blog Hop!!

Hey everyone! We've got such a treat in store for you this weekend! To celebrate all of those beautiful Ribbon Carousels being used around the world (yes, we've shipped Carousels to 27 countries now!) to keep ribbon, twine, washi tapes and spooled items tidy, we'll be hopping around our amazing Crewmates blogs for the next 4 days showing you all of the beautiful and creative ways that our designers use THEIR Ribbon Carousels!

So, a while back my hubby built me a bar for all of my spooled ribbon.  It's fantastic, and I get lots of usage out of it, BUT it doesn't work for the shorter lengths of unspooled ribbon I buy.  I have lots of shorter lengths (5 yard) of my favorites (May Arts Chevron Twill, and lotsa twine!), and I'm horrified to say they inhabited the dreaded ribbon bin.

Oh, it was awful.  How on earth was I to find anything in that mess?  Enter the Ribbon Carousel.  I sat down with a bag of spools, and wound up all the pretty ribbon and loaded it up, and NOW look at it!  SO PRETTY!!! And organized!



I LOVE that it matches my shelves, and looks so darn pretty and feminine.  So much better than the mess I had before.  It's like I can shop in my own stash now!



I found things in my ribbon bin that I had no idea I owned, and I'm really looking forward to using lots of ribbon in my Christmas present packaging!


Would you like to win your very own Ribbon Carousel? Here is what you need to do: Visit the Designer’s blogs that are participating in each day of the blog hop and comment on their posts as you go. One of the Crewmate’s Holiday blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Crewmate’s Holiday Blog Hop post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more Crewmate Blogs you comment on, the better your chances are of winning your very own Ribbon Carousel! The Blog Hop will be open until 11:59 PM Eastern Time Monday, November 25th with the winners being announced Tuesday morning on the Ribbon Carousel Blog.
Already have a Ribbon Carousel? Share a photo of YOUR Ribbon Carousel on our FaceBook page OR email it to info@ribboncarousel.com, and we'll share it for you! You'll be in special drawing for your choice of a Ribbon Carousel or 4 packages of spools!

  9. Very well organized ribbon carousel!! I know exactly how you felt...I would have to dig through boxes of ribbon to find one every time I needed a bow on one of my cards. I still have them in boxes, but at least separate boxes by color. It would be wonderful to have one of these carousels to organize my favorites!!

  20. Oh... My... Gosh!!! I didn't even know these ribbon carousels existed until today - what a beautiful and handy item! I need one of these SO badly - maybe even two or three! LOL! I have so many ribbons stored in various locations - loosely, in Ziploc bags, plastic containers from the deli, jars... it's sad! Winning a carousel would be the best gift I'll receive this Christmas - thank you so much for the opportunity to win one!!!
