Ribbon Holder & Appreciation Notes

I tried several different ways of organizing all my ribbons and think I finally found something that will work for me. This very colorful container started out full of Cheez Balls. (the grandkids love them and we go through several of these containers) I poked holes all over and put all my pretty ribbons in. To cover up the label (which doesn't come off cleanly) I cut a piece of cardstock the same size. I then found a poem about a ribbon and printed it on cardstock. I used 3 stamps from K. Andrew Designs "Positive Thoughts" stamp set and it all turned out so so cute. Very useful and pretty to look at also. Who could ask for more. lol
I have been teaching classes at my local sewing shop and thought it would be a nice extra to give students a little card for attending my classes. I used the "Amazing You" and "Positive Thoughts" stamp sets from K. Andrew Designs. I also used the "Retro Paper Doll Face Assortment" from Peachy Keen Stamps.

I finally talked the owner into letting me teach a card class (which will be tomorrow) that will incorporate embroidery into our card making. I am taking along all my K. Andrew Designs stamps and we are going to have a blast!!!

AHA! I was saving the 3 lb containers for strawberries for my ribbon, but it will take a few. The cheez ball container is a much better option & we have one almost empty now!! Thanks for showing this!!
