For my organizing needs, it’s paper to the rescue!
So after looking into ribbon holders that I either A) couldn’t afford or B) didn’t like, I thought why not make my own? So here is one made out of card stock. I basically took the same idea from the magazine holder and changed all the measurements around. I started with a 12 x 8 3/4 inch card stock piece. I put the short side against the top of the score board and scored at 3 and 6 3/4. I then rotated it to the 12 in side and scored at 3 and 9. This makes a 6 in long box. If you are not in need of one that size you can always adjust this size but I found having the 3 in ends worked well so keep that n mind. My final one doesn’t have enough ribbon to totally fill it but I do have a lot that I want to get and so I left room for growth. I didn’t take step by step pictures of this one but it is essentially the same as my magazine holder that you can get more photos here.
One piece of card stock cut 12 x 8 3/4 inches.
Put your paper the 8 3/4 side up and score at 3 and 6 3/4. Rotate 90 and score at 3 and 9.
Cut along the 8 3/4 side scored lines until they reach the lines that were done at 3 or 9.
Fold the middle piece straight up so you can adhere the thinnest piece to that first. I put the 2 in strip at the bottom of the outside of the middle layer just because I wanted a little more height on the inside.
Then take your longest piece and use that on the outside where it is visible. Adhere.
I decided to cut my sides at a slant so I took my scissors and did that now. Actually first I took a ruler to draw a straight line from top point to the corner of the short end but that isn’t necessary if you aren’t as selective as I am)
So hopefully those directions were a little bit understandable. But as I always suggest, feel free to experiment however you want.
