I thought his ribbon storage was awesome, but I just don't have space in my craft room for those shelves, so this is what I came up with:
I got the wire shelves from Walmart and they look like this in the package:
This is how each end looks from the front. You can see the paperclip, then the CIU clip, then the rod hanging from it all. I said earlier that the nuts might not be necessary because the CIU hook holds into the threads keeping the rod from slipping around. I still used the nuts because they covered the raw edges a little for safety.
And here's how it looks from the side (sorry it's blurry - my camera didn't know what to focus on):So there you have it. It wasn't dirt cheap and it's not the prettiest thing, but I think it will work for all the rolls of May Arts ribbon I've been buying lately!
And one last note: You might be able to see I threaded the ends of the ribbon over and under and over the wire in the shelving. This is to keep the rolls from unrolling on their own, but I can still easily pull the ends and cut whatever length I want. Hope you like my idea!
