I love ribbons and lace....all kinds of trims....just love them. If you are like me....I get them at thrift stores and garage sales and they can be unruly. I decided I need to contain them. At first I wound them around large tags, but they slip off. :(
I made a spool shape and cut them from cardboard. Light weight cardboard or brown cardstock for seam binding and light ribbons. Thicker cardboard for heavy lace and torn strips of fabric.
Here lace is neat and I just added a large pin to hold it in place.
I love seam binding....these are so pretty. Imagine your sewing basket with pretty little spools in them.
Here I add a hole at the top so I could hang them up.
Lastly ...here are the shapes in various sizes.....just copy and paste...print out on cardstock and cut out. Use them as templates for all kinds of spool sizes. Small ones are great for thin small trims. Large would be great for fancy yarns.
Have fun and get wrapping trims up! (I am so bossy today).
