This was originally only a temporary storage solution for my ribbon, but I really like it now and have decided to keep it. I had this white 'towel' ladder in my washroom but never quite liked it. When I started renovating my scraproom I needed a place for my ribbons which were kept in home-made ribbon boxes. I needed to free shelf space (I had 3 ribbon boxes!) so I decided to use this idea. It works quite well, although it doesn't quite house all of my ribbon!
