LESSology #43 - JAN 2015 - RIBBON HOLDER 'Cardboard Central'
Our first LESSology challenge for 2015 is up! I really enjoyed this one. Because I was absolutely 'over' this:
And that is NO 'set up' photo.....I simply rarely use ribbon, & when I do get so frustrated, I just rummage through it then close the drawer. No more. This is what I made - using an old piece of cardboard:
Yup, a ribbon holder. Simple. Effective. MESS FREEEEEEE...gotta ♥♥♥ that!!!
Bit of a box.....covered it with cut offs of pp:
Did those cut outs on the side so that the ribbon would stay in place, using a craft knife & Tim Holtz scissors:
Then, using my BOSTIK blu tak [in a bright colour so I could find the ends of the ribbon easily], I started filling it with the ribbon/lace I think I'll use:)
It was such an easy project, that will save me a great deal of angst & annoyance!
I made the little cut outs 1" wide - most ribbons are that width or less...here's where I now keep it....
...and maybe use them more, since they're in sight! We'll see about that!!!!
There are some VERY creative uses of cardboard from our LESSology DT up on the blog.
I hope you're inspired by some of the ideas and join in this month....here's the YUM prize:
Thanks for looking & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
