I apologize if there is already a thread on this. I have been away from Craftster for quite some time and when I submitted a search inquiry, there didn't seem to be any threads that really described what it is that I'm looking for.


I was wondering if you crafty people could help me. I have an obscene amount of headbands and pins (the big circular ones that go on backpacks, jackets, etc, etc.), and I want to display/store them. I know myself all too well. If I don't have something out in the open, and organized to a certain degree, I might as well not own it because I won't remember I have it, or I won't be able to find the damn thing.

Does anyone have any suggestions/could you lead me to a helpful website or thread to lead me to a solution

Thanks all you cool cats,

And whether pigs have wings.

I saw online once (can't remember where) that someone used a paper towel holder with a roll of paper towels for headbands.  They are always in the open and look pretty!

For the pins - you could use a memo board of some type, but to me the pinbacks seem like they would bend...

You could attach the pins to wide ribbons and hang the ribbons. Maybe in a frame, or as a variation to what SevsOnlyGirl suggested, attach the ribbons to a cork board.
