I used a scrached CD as a base, the core of a Christmas wraping with the last strip of paper taped to stay, slid down the ribbons with large cores. Punched 2 holes, with an awl, cut a coat hanger at center slid smaller cores of ribbon to each side of cut the inserted cut wire ende in ant up. Twisted wire ends together,bebding so no sharp ends protruded. Used wooden closed pins (decorated as soldiers) to each side to keep it centered. More clothes pins between smaller rolls, spacing to balance. Ribbon ends papercliped to edge of core of roll. Don't know how t include photo.

Oh! Dear! Too many typos! Please try to decipher.

Boy, I sure could use this handy hack. All made from an IKEA or similar type, plastic bag dispenser. This would be such a handy way to store ribbon for a school, or in a craft room. Imcoildmalso see this as a dispenser for sewing notions in the sewers room for elastics and fabric Robbins, yarns or even zipper organization. Would make a nice gift for the crafter friend! Thanks for sharing this clever idea!

What a convenient and easy way to store your ribbon and keep it out of the way. I am always opening containers and trying to keep the ends taped up to keep ribbon from spilling out of the holder. This solution keeps it completely untangled and lets me stay sane.
