Many of you remember that I removed all my ribbon off of spools and rolled it onto matboard bobbins so that I could decrease the huge storage space that rolls command. (Check out this post to see what I mean. ) Well as I re-rolled the ribbon, I had many empty spools left over and the thought of throwing them away simply killed me. For months they have perched in the corner of my craft room in a bag. After thinking on what I could do with the leftover spools, I settled on this quick and easy idea. With the help of some paper to cover and some transparency, I have and instant gift or goodie treatment. I used one of the newly released sentiments from Our Daily Bread Designs – Joy to the World, along with one of the tags from the Spellbinders Tags 5 set to personalize the gift. ETA: On the blue gift holder I hung whimsical snowflakes using the Spellbinders Snowflake Wonder set, one of my seasonal favorites, you will see this one a lot.
Since the ends are round, your Circle and Scalloped Circle Spellbinder Nestabilities make the entire project quick and easy. Here are the steps I took to make these cuties:
Assemble by adding top and adorning with ribbon. On the red goodie holder I cut slits on the top and bottom and threaded ribbon through. This will secure the top. My slits went on the inside of the ring but they would work on the outside as well. On the blue goodie holder I added glue dots to hold the top on. Have fun with this!!
