Okay . . . . be prepared to rush right out to your local hardware store. I showed a picture in the Archiver's Holiday sales flyer of a ribbon organizer from Clip-it-Up to my husband and he made one for me! A piece of gutter, two endcaps, some wing nuts and a metal rod and voila! I only had 4 inches clearance under my Ikea pen holders and it fits perfectly! In the pictures I haven't placed the ribbon ends under the rod yet because I'm still deciding what ribbons are "worthy" of the front row on my desk. Isn't this the coolest thing evah? Now my ribbons will be easily accessible and I can roll out just the right amount without removing the roll. WoooHOOO!!!
Thanks for stopping by today. I've been working on some thank you cards and will share them when they've had time to reach the recipients >wink<
