This photo details the end-assembly of my rain-gutter setup for ribbon storage. My original storage was posted here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=19539
The vinyl end caps for vinyl rain gutters are purchased separately from the rain-gutter... one for each end.
I added a length of vinyl corner or edge-type molding 'over' the 'lip' of the rain gutter. This was attached using stacked up little squares of 3M adhesive foam tape at the ends and at about 2 or 3 foot intervals. This component keeps the spools of ribbon from jumping out if ribbon is pulled too quickly.
My entire assembly 'hangs' off the front edge of a shelf we built over my stamp-room's window. I was lazy at this point... I made several large single loops of sturdy ribbon that are located near the ends and one at the mid-point. These loops have humongous push pins passed through the ribbon-loop at the top and into the leading edge of the overhead shelf.
I hope I've covered all your outstanding questions.

I've seen others use the gutters, but I don't recall anyone showing in great detail or description how to do them. Thanks!!!!! Right into my favorites so I can add this to my scramping room (when I ever get one!)
