Ribbon Dispenser

Today's project is this Ribbon Dispenser.  I have created a large one, big enough to hold six standard reels of Stampin' Up! ribbon.  I also decided to create a smaller one to hold non-Stampin' Up! ribbons which I normally pick up at Hobbycraft or The Range.

If you don't have too many ribbons, finding a handy way to store them can be tricky.   With each of these, you could add to them, either stacking them on top of each other or placing in a neat run on a shelf or on your craft desk; perhaps making a Dispenser per each colour collection.   One for pinks, blue, white, etc.

I used my Simply Scored board.   In this accompanying video tutorial I have made the larger of the two Dispensers:

The dimensions required for the smaller Dispenser are :

Cardstock measures 8 3/4 x 6 5/8

Long side:

Score @ 1   3/8  3/4,    4   1/8,   5   1/26   7/8 and   8   1/4

Short side:

Score @ 1  3/8, flip card and score @ 1  3/8.

Construct in the same way as the larger dispenser.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Products used :  ( I have listed the 1/4 inch circle punch which I referred to in the video)

  1. WOW, these are just brilliant Linda...... make me one (or twelve!) hehe xxxx

  2. You are so clever Linda. I do love those, but would need loads to hold my ribbon. Enjoy your Evening. Hugs Rita xxxx

  3. Love this idea Linda, you have so much talent and your ideas are so fresh!! Don't let anybody get you doubting your abilities. Keep going honey you have more supporters than you think. There will always be one person with a negative comment, they have boring lives and want to make everyone feel the way they do.... Don't let them!! You can delete their comments and re-read all of your lovely ones. Love a huge fan xxxx :)

    1. Thank you so much Cal. What was said did make sense - even if it was a bit annoying. But I really do want to try to improve. Means a lot that you took the time to comment this. Its very much appreciated. I need to sort myself out some proper recording accessories xxx (I did delete the comment !! xx)

  4. Great Idea Linda.. Loving this one it's so practical, but as someone said before I'd need a lot of them for my ribbons stash. Love all your projects they re so pretty and have a romantic feel about them...

  5. Love the ribbon holder. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Well I just made the smaller of the 2 box's and I must say that you ar just brilliant!!!! I made the small one first to see how difficult it was and I followed your video and with the exception of fumbling with the sides a bit it turned out great. I have been looking for a way to store all my ribbon and I think that you found it for me. I will have to make probably about 10 of these but I have an old wooden book rack ( the kind that people would die for) that I am retrieving from my daughters room when she moves out and after I refinish it these box's will look great. Thanks for this fabulous tutorial.

  7. I just wanted to tell you that I wanted to make a larger one so I used a 12 by 11 3/4 sheet. It turned out perfect. I GOT 12 ROLLS OF RIBBON IN IT!!! Most of them were 5/8 inch but some were larger and some were smaller. I got most of them at JoAnn Fabrics (Offray Brand). Now I won't have to make as many box's for my ribbon. TFS

  8. I lové,love,love it,it's wonderful.I need this box for my ribbons and try it tonight .bravo.

  9. OMG, what a beautiful way to store ribbon. I have way too much ribbon to do that, but it would be cute to make one to show it off. Thanks for sharing such an awesome idea :)
