Earlier I asked on my Facebook page what tip you thought I would use with this basket. A crocheter might think of it as a yarn holder… drawing the strands through the holes to keep the yarn from moving around. Yes, that’s a great tip! But that’s not what this Tip Tuesday is about! Learn how to create organized ribbon storage below!
I’ve come to love ribbon, and really not in combination with crocheted work. I can never seem to get ribbon to look right woven through posts or stitches the few times I’ve tried. But I do love making ribbon sculptures and my mess of ribbon was way out of control. I needed something easy, I needed something effective, I needed some awesome storage system!
- Plastic Container with holes like pictured above
- Wooden Dowels small enough to fit through holes in container
- Hand Saw
- Measuring Tape
Have your supplies? Great! You’re going to want to measure the wooden dowel to fit the long ways through the container with the ends slightly hanging out. Saw dowel where you measured. Load dowel with ribbon and slip into holes on short ends of container. Once your dowel is in place, you can thread ribbon through holes like picture below.
Why is it that I love ribbon sculptures?? Well, if you check out Ella Bella Bows, you’ll see exactly what has me hooked! I love her ribbon tutorials! You can find them on Craftsy and Etsy. Hope you enjoyed this Tip Tuesday!
