Here is a photo of how I store my ribbons and embellishments - all by colour.  At the moment, red and pink are together, and yellow and orange are together.  I really need to get some more clear buckets (they are plastic take-out containers).

The only things I have separated are the buttons and bling.  They are stored in small plastic containers by colour (these containers are designed for spices).

This system works for me.  When I want something green on my card or layout, I just tip out the whole bucket on the table and pick something.
