Hooray for Woodworking Dads

Thanks to my dad, this is now how I store most of my ribbon. I'm so pleased with these little stands that I thought they deserved some recognition. I've never had the perfect ribbon organizer until I designed something specifically for my cabinet and gave my little drawings, accompanied by a big smile, to my dad (well, he wasn't actually here, but I had one of those big do-me-a-favor smiles on over the phone and then sent the drawings home with my mom).
In case you're interested, these stands measure 14"x3 1/2"x3/4" on the base and hold four 1/4" dowels that stand 9" tall and are spaced 3 1/2" apart. This fits pretty much all the decorative ribbon I have, including spools that are extra wide (line them up next to the smaller spools) and some that are extra tall (like the one on the right with 5 bands of color). Besides accommodating what I have and looking nice in my cabinet, these are great for pulling out one at a time instead of having to haul and store a giant bin.
Lucky for me, my parents just happened to have some red paint at home. My favorite.
