Make a ribbon dispenser box

Filed Under: weekend projects, art, Crafts, gifts

ribbon dispenser boxEvery time I wrap a gift and grab the ribbon, I first have to untangle the jumbled mess that the ribbon has become. I always put the ribbon back in the box thinking that I will take care of the mess later, but I always end up forgetting about it until the next time I go to wrap a present.

Thanks to an instructable by donovanbeeson, we can all have success the next time we go to wrap a present. We won't have to worry about jumbled ribbon anymore. Donovanbeeson shows us step by step how to create a hinged top ribbon box that is designed to neatly dispense spool ribbon.

Crafters should already have all the materials on hand and be able to whip up this awesome box in short order. The ribbon dispenser box makes a great gift for those who love to craft, and can be used for other dispensable items too.

    I neeeeeeed one of these.
    I've seen styles (for sale or to make at home) that involve setting eyelets into the front of the box, too, to run the ribbon through, but this one seems like a lot less work. Thanks, A! :)
