Organizing Ribbon

Remember this?
RIBBON THROW UP 1

I was very impressed with myself when I made the shelf above.  However, it totally sucked when that middle spool ran out.  Of course, that was the only one that EVER ran out.   This piece wasn’t really working due to it’s lack of convenience and it was not holding all of my ribbon.  I needed another solution and here is what I came up with. 

CRAFT ROOM 6

I purchased the cheap shelf at WalMart.  I went with cheap because I will probably not use this piece forever.  And I knew I wouldn’t be placing anything heaving on the shelves.  The jars hold smaller scrap pieces of ribbon; as well as, those ribbons I use most often.  The two black bins are for the rest of the ribbon.  I decluttered the closet a bit and moved the photo boxes from the closet.  These are the boxes that I use most often.  I have been using the ribbon jars for a little over a week now; I am really liking them.

I originally had {THIS} ceiling tile bulletin board on the wall (I have a tutorial on how to make a ceiling tile bulletin board over at that link).  However, I really didn’t like how the black and white feathers looked, nor was it big enough.  This is more fitting for my style.

I love this! And I'm trying to make the bulletin board. I've got everything ready to go - and I can't find a ceiling tile without buying a whole case. Any ideas?
