Shabby Chic Ribbon Storage

Hello Everyone,
Today I have a really cute way to store all your ribbon, but still be at reach when you need it . The diy is called Shabby Chic Ribbon Storage, and my inspiration for this project came from this storage box that I found in a catalog.

So I hope you guys like it and Enjoy,

Shabby Chic Ribbon Storage

Cardboard Box
Glue Stick
Scrapbooking Paper
Craft Knife
Tim Holtz idea-ology Keyholes ( I got mine at Hobby Lobby)

Step 1: Trace around the side of your box onto your scrapbook paper. Then cut out your square piece of paper, you should cut out four squares ( one for each side of your box).

Step 2: Then with your glue stick, glue each square piece to the sides of your box.

Step 3: While your box is drying, take your lid and glue it to a piece of scrapbooking paper that is twice it's size.

Step 4: Then make a slit at each corner of your lid. Once you do that, fold up one side of your paper and glue it to your cardboard lid ( picture 1). Then cut off any extra paper, when your done one of your sides should look like picture 2. When you fold and glue all four sides your lid should look like picture 3.

Step 5: Lay your keyholes where you want them and mark it with your pencil.

Step 6: With your craft knife cut out the two holes for your brads and the main keyhole (picture 1, also when you buy Tim Holtz's keyhole kit they come with their own brads). When your done put your keyhole back in its place, and clean up any edges ( picture 2). Then continue this process for the next two keyholes. 

Then your done! Feed some ribbon through the keyholes and you now have a shabby chic way of storing all your pretty ribbon.
