I'm sorry that I don't know who put this idea up, but thank you SO much! I must say, it was a little more than I bargained for! I wanted to use eyelets to avoid any snags in the ribbon. I needed much larger eyelets for the Large Organdy ribbon, so I found some extra large eyelets at the fabric store. I started drilling the holes, but didn't have the saize bit I wanted, so I ended up using a torch and an old screwdriver to hand make the holes large enough. I don't think I'll make another, but I'm sure glad this one's finished!

I'm the "someone" that posted this idea and I'm so glad to see that it helped you! I like the look of yours with the eyelets, but I just want to say to others thinking of doing one, if you sand the plastic after you drill the holes, it really will be perfectly smooth. I haven't had ANY problem with my ribbon snagging - either the grosgrain or the organdy. So for others who might be frightened off by having to do the eyelets, give it a try without them! I think you'll be happy, and the container costs very little - I think under $5(?)
Glad you shared yours Dena. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
