DIY Ribbon Organizer Under $3

by Sahana
This will be a perfect post for you if you are thinking to organize your ribbons and tapes after all that wrapping you did for the holidays.
Mark and cut the cardboard pieces.

For sides : Length --> 22"

Width --> 3"

Top & Bottom : Length --> 15"

Width --> 3"

Corner joining pieces: Length --> 4"

Width --> 3"
Divide the lengthwise panels equally (For the mentioned length, it comes to 5 divisions)Now mark the slits for the dowels to go. To do this, Mark the center of each division and draw a two diagonal lines of 0.75 inches (approx 45 degrees) touching the edges.(as shown)
Cut the slits with a utility knife.
Glue the cardboard pieces. First, glue them on the corners and leave it to dry. Then fold the corner joining pieces into half and glue them in the corners for extra stability.

What do you think of this organizer? I only spent for the wood dowel which was around $2.87 (for 3) and the cardboard piece were totally free. Oh ya! Paints and glue I already had.(Isn't it a must in a crafter's supply stash?) So, totally under $3 is what I spent for making this wonderful organizer. If you are having less than 10 spools and still you want to organize under budget, you should totally check this one I made last year.
