Amanda- 28th-Ribbon Tutorial

Cut a 12x12 piece of chipboard into 9 pieces of 4"x4"
I have used about 30 you can use more or less though.
Then down the bottom cut a 3" long slot, coming in from the
sides half an inch and then measure half an inch from the bottom.

Then paint each one all the different colours, I have even
painted one in Christmas colours for my Christmas
ribbons. This is up to your imagination how many colours
you would like, I did for example 2 pinks because I have a
lot of that colour ribbon. I also painted both sides

once you have painted all of them, get your croc-o-dile
punch a hole right in the middle of all of them
you will need a large clip ring to attach them all to

Now for the fun part!!
Attach all your ribbons and watch it come

Now I don't have my ribbons stuffed in the little bags
anymore in the cupboard, where I can not see them
and they also don't get any crinkles. I am yet to add many more
ribbons to this as I keep finding more bags of ribbons

Please come over to my blog whiteruffles for a few more tips, do's and dont's
on the ribbon hanger

What a great idea! I've just bought a big bag of ribbon and have been struggling to find what I'm looking for rummaging through the bag but this is a perfect solution. Will have to get creating :)
