Ribbon Extravaganza

For those who don't believe me, this is the majority of my ribbon collection. I still have a rubbermaid container of ribbon that I did not put on this storage board, most of which is non-fabric ribbon used for bows on gifts. I borrowed the idea for this storage board from Jennifer. It took me about 2 hours to make and that included spray painting the dowel rods. It did not turn out as I hoped, partly because Wal-Mart did not sell me a 1/2 yard of fabric like I asked for and push pins would not hold the weight of the ribbon rods. For now, it works. I took my color inspiration from the flowers at the bottom of the board. Just in case you can't see the colors very well, the board is covered in yellow fabric, rods painted lavender and held on with green ribbon.
