Ribbon Storage Box

Ribbon is a popular item for scrapbooking and cardmaking, but how do you keep it organized and accessible? How about a ribbon dispenser...made with a photo box and eyelets.

Ribbon Storage Box

What you need

Paper mache photo box
Dritz extra large eyelets
Craft knife


Measure and mark where you want your eyelets to go. I placed mine right next to each other so that I could fit a lot of them, please see pictures.

Cut holes with a craft knife or punch (I traced the eyelets and cut them out with a craft knife).

Place eyelets inside holes and set with tool supplied inside the eyelet package, using a hammer.

Place ribbon rolls inside and begin enjoying your new dispenser!
