I have two problems.
I have tons of ribbon and string and twine and ric rac that I rarely use because they’re in jammed in a shoe tote in a tangled mess.
Our school district has an annoying policy of store-bought only treats for birthdays which means I’m forced to cough up over $10 bucks for lousy cookies instead of doing something cute and homemade.
But after whining to Mr. Thrive, it occurred to me that I could solve both problems with the same frosting-smeared solution:
I Give You: The Bat-Scrap Organizer
Trust me on this one.
These cookie containers will rescue your ribbon supply from the forces of chaos.
Just grab some cardboard, a canning ring and your nicest, broken crayon and cut out enough circles to fill a cookie tray.
Then notch out the top and bottom ala bat wings to make room to wrap your ribbon.
A quick slit in the bottom holds scraps in place while you wrap …
… and before you can say, “Robin, to the Bat Cave!” you’ve got a tidy little Bat-Scrap organizer for your twine.
Or ten tidy little Bat-Scraps all nice and organized.
And someday when I have oodles of free time, I’ll actually paint these little Bat-Scrap organizers to make them cute and less box-ish. Until then, ugly works.
No more chaos … no more tangles … no more searching for scraps.
And storage takes up hardly any space on the shelf since they stack neatly. Love that.
(And yeah … I’m going to go re-wash these bad boys and get all those water marks off ASAP. Robin, to the Bat Soap!)
So there you go.
Chaos defeated. Scraps corralled. Order restored.
