2. Tic Tac Ribbon Organiser.

The next time you buy Tic Tac's, make sure that you don't throw them right away - you can repurpose them to store all your ribbons! Your teeny tiny empty Tic Tac containers are the perfect solution for housing individual ribbons. Put the edge of your ribbon inside the opening of the Tic Tac container for easy access. See example below from Pretty Prudent.
