I wish that I was an inherently neat and organized person. I enjoy having an orderly home, but it is a challenge to keep it that way. I feel like my crafting time is stolen time, and I often don't have the time to put things away like they should be. On Saturday I decided that it was time that I showed my trims and laces the respect (and order) that they deserved.
I have an old wipes case that I use to house my bias tapes, ric-rac, piping, and scraps of ribbon and lace. Often times if I just have a piece left, I'll wind it up, secure it with a straight pin, and throw it into the container.
I simply cut one slit on the side of the rectangle. I slid in the end of the trim, and then began wrapping it along the length of the rectangle. I was able to fit multiple pieces of remnant trims on some pieces of cardboard.
My larger laces and trims received larger pieces of cardboard.
It might not look perfectly organized, and it isn't, but it is an improvement. It is a great way to store remnant trims and laces, and to keep any trim purchased off of the spool a nice little home.
