Make A Curling Ribbon Caddy !

My Curling Ribbon Caddy !
Yesterday as I was wrapping gifts, I came up with another recycled project using a mundella 1kilo yoghurt container .I cut 5 slits in the lid and threaded the four different colour curling ribbons through the top. Now when I need some I just pull it out the top no more tangles and trying to find the end. The fifth slit was in the middle of the lid and I pushed the scissors in ,which can stay there all the time as we have a few pairs floating around. That way when I need curling ribbons I don't need to look for the scissors. Keep it with all your gift wrapping supplies to keep you well organised . Also saves another plastic container from landfill.

  8. Hi Naomi, that's a good idea ...really any container can be used one with a soft plastic lid is ideal as easier to made holes with either a knife or scissors ...just another great way to recycle and reuse ...:)

  9. Oh my goodness, this is sooo cool! I never know where to store all my ribbons for giftwrapping. This is sooo creative, and thank you so much for sharing! And you are right, it saves another plastic container from landfill, and you could decorate it too. :-)

  11. I set one of these up this year and everyone commented how easy it was to take to their rooms and secretly wrap their gifts. Very tidy and easy to manage. You are an amazing Woman, I am in awe of how your brain ticks over and over and over.....

  13. Surely there is a book in the making her though! I think you should explore something along those lines. The first Title that I thought of was "How to Make Everything from Nothing!"
    I would love to think you were earning for your efforts and I think a book of yours would present really well.
    Have you ever explored the idea?

  14. Hi Anonymous I often think about writing a book
    on bag making and maybe reusing,reducing and recycling but with so many blogs on the subject these days not sure people would be interested in buying a book ! Thanks for the lovely feed back "BIG SMILES "
