Ribbon and Thread Organizers

I've been looking for a thread organizer that was just a straight line, but all I could find were the big square kind. So yesterday Josh helped me make what I had in mind. And we made a ribbon organizer while we were at it. We just bought a few feet of a thin wood baseboard, two sizes of wooden dowels, and two metal hook screw things. We cut the thinner dowel into two inch pieces and sanded the ends. Then drilled holes into the baseboard, two inches apart. I planned on gluing the dowel pieces into the holes, but it was a really snug fit, so I didn't need to glue. And the ribbon organizer is even more self-explanitory than the thread organizer. Three dollars later, my crafting nook is a little more organized. (Did I really just say "nook"?)

I have been trying to organize my ribbons for years. It causes me so much stress. Good job. Tell me what you think about it in a few months. I love it.
