Ok, I'm first to admit that I love ribbons on my papers as borders, interest, photo corners, you name it. When I found my first one, I was very excited. Then I was up to 6. Still in love, although it's true, it won't hold large spools. But a piece of wire handles that, or you could have a hubby like mine who made me a wooden large spool holder. He ALSO made me a rack in which to store 6 of these boxes with a handle so I can take them to hotel crops without them falling and breaking and scattering ribbon when someone knocked them down, and the ribbon dispenses flawlessly. Against a wall, they are VERY stable! Love, Love, Love these!
