ribbons, ribbons, ribbons

Do you have a stash of ribbon in your drawer?

I do!

The thing is…. I haven’t been using it much lately.

My policy in crafting is to “use it or lose it”. I only have so much storage space and at least twice a year, I go through my stash and decide what has to go. With so many new goodies on their way, I need some storage space. So my dilemma is I must use the ribbon or give it away. Which will it be?

I created this card to try to decide. Some of it I’ve used. Some of it is headed out the door and some of it will be put in my boys’ craft box. I have some mighty crafty little peeps here. :)

I loved making this card. To create it simply adhere strips of ribbon to a scrap of cardstock and then die cut it. I’ve used a Spellbinders labels die. I suggest running it through your die cut machine twice as some of that ribbon is tough to cut.

So what do you have in your craft area that you need to deal with? Remember the “use it or lose it” phrase to keep your space from getting overwhelmed.

Spring is on its way and I’m ready to get into full cleaning mode. I challenge you to do the same.

Happy sorting!
