I have a small obsession with ribbon. I have too much and need more. I have a large ribbon holder but I often look for creative ways to display my ribbon. Recently I bought a small dowel and foam block. The dowel was $2.99 for pack of 10. The foam block (use for/with fake flowers) was $1.99 all found at Jo-Ann's Fabric and Crafts. . I covered the block and decorated it. Then I simply stuck the dowel into the foam block. You can place regularly used ribbon, small spools, or certain colors on the decorated holder. I think I am also going to create on to hold my adhesive dots.
