Hullo there! It's 2015. How WEIRD! Anyways, the cardboard challenge was a GREAT one for me. Because I was absolutely 'over' this:

And that is NO 'set up' photo.....I simply rarely use ribbon, & when I do get so frustrated, I just rummage through it then close the drawer. No more. This is what I made - using an old piece of cardboard:
Yup, a ribbon holder. Simple. Effective. MESS FREEEEEEE...gotta ♥♥♥ that!!!

 Bit of a box.....covered it with cut offs of pp:
Did those cut outs on the side so that the ribbon would stay in place, using a craft knife & Tim Holtz scissors:
Then, using my BOSTIK blu tak [in a bright colour so I could find the ends of the ribbon easily], I started filling it with the ribbon/lace I think I'll use:)
It was such an easy project, that will save me a great deal of angst & annoyance!
I made the little cut outs 1" wide - most ribbons are that width or less...here's where I now keep it....
...and maybe use them more, since they're in sight! Now, off to make a couple more;) Thanks for looking & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

Love this fab idea Lizzy of how to better look after laces and ribbons which many of us( or at least my self ) keep in a box of loose ends and kaos.... Thanks for sharing :)
