When I have scraps of ribbon, those that no longer fit on a spool or ribbon bought by the yard, I like to keep track of it either by winding it around clothespins,

placing the ones I like with phrases that are dear to me in a glass cloche

or placing in glass jars {mine are from Ikea $2.99 each}

In any of these cases, they are pretty to look at and are an easy and inexpensive way to organize. 

To wrap the ribbon around the clothespin simply start with the ribbon centered in the clothespin opening and wrap evenly around finishing off with a decorative straight pin.  I like to place these by the bunch in a wire basket for easy access.
