Yes, I know I have Glitter on My Face.......

In the flurry of the kids, the husband and everyday life... I find the time to throw on a little glitter and create some works of heart!

My Ribbon Keepers

Well I know I discussed it a bit back about how I "altered" my Stampin UP! Ribbon keepers. While I love my DIY Ribbon Pull EZE bag for all my loose ribbons, I just can't get anything better than my Stampin UP! Ribbon Keepers for my spools of ribbon. But I did a little improvement one day when I was wanting to "play" with a brand new Crop A Dile!!! So I whipped out some retired jumbo eyelets I had laying around (if you don't have any of these hearts or flowers that were retired a year or two ago you could use the new Jumbo Circle Eyelets from Stampin UP!) and then proceded to punch a row of holes in the front panel using my Crop A Dile tool and then setting the jumbo eyelets. Now I am able to thread the ribbon through the eyelet hole and it keeps the spools from unwinding at will (especially during transport) plus it keeps them from "jumping" into their buddies spool (do you have that problem when unrolling ribbon??!!! you won't once you do THIS to your ribbon keepers!!!)............ So what do you think???

Wow...now why didn't I think of that? Do you have any rough spots on the back of the eyelets that catch on the ribbon as it is pulling through? That would be something I'd be concerned about...but with a steady hand on the crop-a-dial it should be OK don't you think?
