A ribbon holder

Since I have been at home poorly, the chaos that is my nappy cake stock has been driving me mad as I'm just sitting and looking at it all day.

Unfortunately it is situated at one end of my living room and has progressively taken over more and more room. Since I started making the nappy cakes, I have tried and tried to get things organised but it just doesn't seem to be possible.

One of the main things I have a problem with is my reels of ribbon which are just stuffed in a box. So, after moaning at hubby he promised he would see if he could make me something to keep them all in line.

When he got home from work this evening, he announced he had a surprise to cheer me up and produced a wooden box with holes drilled for dowels. The idea being the dowels can be pushed through the middle of the ribbon reels and the dowels can then be hung in the box so all the ribbons hang down separately. Brilliant idea and it really works - he got all my ribbon reels out and lined them all up in their new storage box for me.

Now I've just got to wait for the storage unit he promised me for everything else!
