Though I can't say for sure, I think it was flipping through a Martha Stewart magazine in the past few months that I saw this handy little idea for storing ribbon.
Since my craft drawers are over-full, I decided to give it a try.
I pulled apart one of the many dry-cleaning hangers that seem to linger around our house for much too long (I hate wire hangers) and threaded these little beauties right on. I have to say, it's super handy to have so many of them all tidy in a row (there are still many more stuffed in a drawer in my studio), and they are within arm's reach now that they hang from my work-table.
So thanks, Martha, or whoever it was who published this great tip!
