Ribbon Mobile or Ribbon Storage

The past couple weeks I have had a few different reasons to dig out my old ribbon collection from back in the days when I used to scrapbook on a regular basis.  All of the pretty ribbon, organized by color, sit in a bag in a chest that we use as a coffee table in the front room.  It is really sad that they aren't out where you can see them.

Then yesterday I stumbled across this image over on Between U and Me:


She was inspired by this Pottery Barn Teen ribbon mobile:


It makes a cute addition to a girls room, but I think it also makes a pretty great way to store your ribbon out in the open.  Instead of securing the ribbon to the frame, you could just loop it through.  That way the ribbon remains completely useable, but you also have a beautiful display for your craft room.

It reminds me of this idea from Donna Downey that I fell in love with a couple of years ago:

I cannot tell you how many times I had to talk myself out of buying a dress form!  Looking at it now I almost still wish I had!

This is so cute! It looks exactly like the Pottery Barn mobile, if I didn't know, I wouldn't be able to point out which was homemade and which wasn't.

I am sure this doesn't help but my Hobby Lobby has the dress forms on sale (at leas the one here does). It's too bad they are still expensive because I really want one. =)

Alicia, I do not have a craft room in our current house, but I will in our next house and I don't know that I will be able to resist after that happens!
