I received my Paper Crafts magazine (Nov/Dec) edition today and I was pleased to pass along a great idea they featured.
Glass sugar dispensers often used in diners are the perfect size to hold twine and even ribbon. Loved the idea because it useful in organizing craft spaces.
You can find these dispensers often in thrift shops. Amazon also sells them but they would probably be much cheaper at thrift shops. Paper Crafts Magazine said they saw the idea from Etsy.com but didn't specify if it was from an article or a shop.
I might use this idea myself to organize loose ribbon I have in my drawers. I'll have to keep an eye out the next time I visit a thrift store.
