Storage for baker's twine and ribbon

I have to give credit to Amber at damask love for the idea and instructions on how to create this absolutely wonderful hanging display & storage unit for baker's twine. Amber's tutorial is really clear so I won't bother explaining anything about how this was created except to point out that instead of painting the wooden frame I decided to cover it with patterned paper. I used a sharp blade to trim around the designs and then sanded all the edges. It was finished off with a couple of coats of Mod Podge. It was a lot more work than painting would be but I'm pleased with the result.

I've hung the frame in my work area and just love how accessible the coloured twines and narrow ribbons are now.
