Very cool! I don't have that much ribbon, but maybe I can use your idea for the ribbon I do have!

Oh, that is so fantastic!!!! I am hitting this rocks! And I am totally going to copy you as soon as I move into my new place  Wink. Did you just sew the cords holding the dowells above and below each dowell so that it lies flat or did you make it bubble out? That probably doesn't make any sense. What I mean is it like this:
n  n   n   n   n  (with the dowells sticking between the humps)  or  like this:  ________? Sorry I can't explain what I mean any better.
Anyways, that is a great idea and yours looks wonderful!

Thank you for all the awesome compliments!!!

I totally understand what you are asking... Cheesy   And I did make the strapping bubble out.  I took 4 inches of strapping and made a 1 1/4 inch gap for the dowel with it.  So, you end up with a 2 3/4 inch bubble approx. Then I sewed above and below the bubble.
Now, hopefully I explained that so it makes sense  Undecided

Ooo...nice!  I don't have near that much ribbon (I am drooling over your stash) but could use a much better way to organize it.  Now...I just need more wall space in my meager crafting area!

Cute idea! I store mine in a giant cookie style tin. Not nearly as tidy or use-able!
