Craft Room Organizing-Store over 200 Rolls of Ribbon in a 12" square Space!

 How do you store over 200 rolls of ribbon?  Easy!  Just put this little project together and you've got something you can put on your craft desk that is only twelve inches square.and spins around so you have easy access to ALL your ribbon rolls. (2" round ribbon rolls from American Crafts)

1 piece of wood 11x11 (top and bottom pieces need to be larger than the lazy susan piece)
1 piece of wood 12x12x2  or take a piece of wood 11" x 11" and add pieces of wood on each side to make   it a 2" base--that's what we did.
8 pieces of dowel each 15" long
Drill with 1/4" bit
Lazy Susan Turntable
Paint or stain

(1) On the top piece of wood,  space out and drill  8 holes with a 1/4" drill bit. A 1/4" dowel were the perfect size for our American Crafts rolls of ribbon.

(2) Then attach the lazy susan turntable to the top piece of wood. 
(3) Drill a access hole in that top piece. This will give you access to the bottom piece so you can drive a screw into the bottom piece of the lazy susan, down into the base.
(4) Then attach the lazy susan to the bottom piece with a screw (through the access hole) 

 Yes, this involves measuring and a drill. You can purchase the lazy susan turntable at

After you pull the ribbon off of a roll you can either use a piece of tape or a tiny pin to keep it from unraveling.  Such a small thing that will prove to be so useful in your craft room! (Thanks to Chad the builder for making this for me)
