Well, it is that time where we must stop enjoying our holiday decorations and stow them away for another year. I am pretty methodical in my packing...everything has a particular place, but keeping track of those plastic strips that protect and hold the ribbon on the spool is unrealistic. Tape often does not stick to a glittered fabric ribbon such as this one and I want to keep the glitter looking full and new. Then I thought, of course, just use a small piece of clear plastic kitchen wrap to cover the ribbon after I had rewound it onto a pencil or a spool. The plastic wrap will stick to itself leaving no need for tape.
Voila! Ready for storage.
