Lace, Ribbon, Yarn, Trimmings Spool Organizer

I am working on getting all my lace and ribbon organized and designed this little spool from some vintage sewing graphics I had. The graphics are available in my little etsy store

To make it strong enough I print it on brochure paper or matte finish photo paper. Then use spray glue to attach it to a medium weight matte board... You can purchase medium weight matt board at your local office supply store. Cut it out and sand the edges with a emery board. This will give it a die cut look. You can also dress up the sides with a paint pen or heel and sole dressing that is normally used for shoes and that seals the matt board and really makes it  look vintage too.

I have several styles available so stop by my little etsy store and check them out!
