I made myself a ribbon holder. All I used was 4 Carnation Instant Breakfast Canisters, 2 wood dowels (1/4” x 12”),scrap wood, scrapbook paper, and paint.
I cut the wood into 2 strips 3” x 15” and 2 strips 3” x 12”. Then I cut what was suppose to be just an “L” shape but I messed up on one strip and had to cut “T” shapes for it to work right.
I then used wood glue and some nails to put the frame together and painted it.
In between coats of paint I worked on the actual holders. I cut the metal part off the bottom of each canister and then stuck two together with duck tape. Then I punched holes into the lids for the dowel to go through.
Then I covered the canisters using Mod Podge and scrapbook paper. Then using an x-acto knife I cut a slit for the ribbon to come out of.
A couple of coats of varnish and the ribbon in place and she’s ready to hang!! I’m now one step closer to an organized office/craft room.
