Recently, I ordered some ribbon from ebay. I got it at a very good price. However, it was shipped without a spool. A lot of shippers do this to save on shipping. But a lot of times, if you leave the ribbon folded, it will have bends and creases in it and they will show up when you try to use them on your scrapbook or on tags. To resolve this, I came up with a way to make my own ribbon spools.
You can make them too.
Toilet Paper or Paper Towel Rolls
White or Cream Cardstock Paper
Scrapbook paper of your choice
Distress Ink (optional)
