7/8 - 1in. cup hooks

Drill 2 pocket holes at each end of the 13.Drill Pocket holes
In the wall were you plan on screwing in the 13 you may need to install at least 1 drywall anchor.

      I thought about using decorative brackets under the wood and putting a dowel for my ribbon. I can imagine it will have to give it a try.

    I think adding dowel rods to slide the paper over would help then from slipping. This is a very cool idea to get them organized andfoff the floor

    why not cut longer so will be sure to hit studs. A little more space will probably come in handy.
