I have to simple ribbon holders purchased at Michael's Craft Store...each shelf has 2 ribbon rods and each holds plenty of ribbon however, I still had ribbon stashed in cupboards, baskets, bags, containers etc as they just don't make a ribbon rack big enough for it all! Well as they say, out of sight means out of mind and so my ribbons stayed hidden in their cupboards instead of on my cards and layouts :( Then I was struck with a
(If you don't already have lanyards to do this, allow me to enable you to get an alternative...
1. Dollar stores sell lanyards for $1 a piece!
2. Tie a knot at the bottom of an old necktie string the rolls on then loop the end over the ribbon rod and staple, tie a knot or use an elastic to stop secure the tie to the rod.
3. Use inexpensive cord from the bargain bin at the fabric store, add a noose at one end to thread onto the ribbon rod then add an embellishment to the end of the cord to stop the spools from falling off the other end!
4. Got an empty ribbon spool and some 'ugly' ribbon? Tie one end of the ugly ribbon around the empty spool thread on the spools you want to display then tie a large paper clip to the opposite end of the 'ugly' ribbon to stop the threaded spools from exiting :)
Ok here's a photo!
