What you will need:
*Magazine images (or decorative paper, pictures, etc.)
*Mod Podge (the glossy finish one)
*Double stick tape
*String (or a wooden skewer)
Step 1: Decorate Your Box
Step 2: Cutting Out the Openings
With your box cutter, cut out each slot, roughly 1/4" thick. I found it worked best to first make the top and bottom slits of the slot, and the cut out the sides for a clean, rectangular opening. Add a bit of Mod Podge to the openings if they are a bit rough to keep your ribbon from snagging.
(I believe you can also purchase hefty hole punchers at your local hardware store for an even easier method - I on the other hand am "cheap" and use whatever I have already lol).
Step 3: Creating the Runner
Run a string through the hole (or a stick/rod of sorts), and through the center of the ribbon spools. You will want to pack it as tightly as possible! Tie the ends of your string in thick bows so that they will not slip through the hole (but not in knots because you will need to be able to stick one side back through the hole to add new rolls of ribbon).
That's it! You now have a chic, personalized storage unit for all those pesky ribbons :)
