We're taking a quick break to share this handy mini tutorial with you. He's being a sweet boy and sitting on my lap as I type. :-) On to the tutorial. It's easy, but such a great idea!
Yesterday, I showed you my DIY Fabric Bolts. When I was making those fabric bolts, I remembered that I had seen something similar for ribbon. Unfortunately, like my DIY Coupon Holders, I can't find where I saw it! I don't think I imagined seeing it...who knows though. I'm a bit scatterbrained today. Earlier, I was trying to find the socks I set down, so I could put them on my little guy's feet; then I realized that I had already put them on his feet! Oh boy...
Anywaaaay! Back to the tutorial. Here's what you'll need.
- A mess of ribbon
- Heavy card stock
- Paper Cutter
Step 1: Cut pieces of card stock 2.5x4.75 inches..
Step 2: Attach one end of the ribbon to the card stock with tape.
Step 3: Wrap the ribbon around the card stock and fasten the end with tape.
You're done! You probably see now why called it a mini tutorial. They should look something like this.
I also used the "bolts" that some of my ribbon came on to wrap and rewrap some of the other ribbon.
It's so much nicer than before!And now I can get it all in my ribbon container with ease!
I think it took more effort for me to write this tutorial than it did to do this project, so it's definitely something to try.
I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.
