This is a close up to show you how the SU ribbon rolls fit into this guttering. This was my main concern, that the big rolls fit into this. I tried about 3 different gutters before finding the right one. I got it at Lowe's. Take your ribbon spool with you to check size.

love it, I have one too. How did you attach it? Is that the normal clips that attach it to a house? I just have mine sitting on a shelf. Is it strong enough to hold your punches? I have a lot of punches...thanks for info..

This is attached with the normal brackets, like you find with the guttering, they are very strong. You can see that we used 2 supports on each 2 foot section so I know it isn't going anywhere. it is holding my punches just fine, no issues at all with it not staying up there nicely. I love it for the way it works! I have seen on here people using longer sections of guttering and putting thier punches in it too. Normally I have two more of the large sizes punches up top along with what you saw in the other picture

I have this same system and love it too!! I took my biggest spool of ribbon with when we when shopping for gutters and we bought a 10 foot section. My DH cut it into 2 five foot sections. I have my ribbon in my top 5 foot section and all of my punches in my lower 5 foot section. I have had no probs with the weight of the punches either. Love it love it love it!! ---and it is sooo reasonable! We probably did use more of the gutter brackets than you normally would on a house just for extra support though--but that is ok with me ;o) I have mine in my gallery if you'd like to look--they are on the last page I think. I have more punches in there now than what the pictures show though!! (Side note: I tried to PM you 'inway2deep' but it says you can't accept PM's)

i purchased my gutter pieces at Menards, i had a ten foot piece cut into three equal pieces. I did the same thing with the brackets, i used two per section. The 10ft gutter was 4.79, and the brackets were 2.39 each and the end caps were 2.99ea. Menards cut the gutter for me at no charge.
