Freebie: Ribbon Storage

This week's freebie is my handy ribbon storage tag.  As I said on an earlier post:

"The tag is designed in a fold-in-half style. This means that if you're using thinner cardstock for them, you can fold them in half for extra strength. If you're using strong cardstock, just snip them in half with scissors for twice as many tags!

Thread your ribbons onto the tags and store them on a large book ring. No more ribbon tangle nightmares! If you store your ribbon in a box with the ends of your ribbon poking out through holes, this means an end to "mystery ribbon" - where you pull out a piece of ribbon only to see that there's not enough for the project you're working on, so you open up the box and try to thread the ribbon back through the hole again (until it happens the next time!)"

As ever, please don't pass these files around.  They will be permanently free here so please direct others to come here to download them.  Notice the new tab at the top of this page?  "Cutting Files" will take you to the full list of files which will grow by 1 set each week.

The files are available as SVG and DXF, which can be used with most digital cutters.

Thank you for this perfect file. Ribbon is such a hard thing to store neatly and this is just the perfect way to do it. I think it would work with lace too.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've been using your idea for some time now, and I am finally saying thank you.

I can't use your cutting file, but I've been able to copy your idea with my handy craft knife and a tag punch. You are brilliant!

I have attached the rings to a coat hanger, so the ribbons are all hanging down from that. The coat hanger is then inside a suit bag (like what the dry cleaners use), to stop my toddler pulling on the ends of the ribbons. (I got that idea from a friend who was keeping her ribbons safe from her cat.)

Thank you again.
