Prepare the needed supplies to make a ribbon box. A picture box, eyelet kit (large and small) & a variety of ribbons. Be sure to get an eyelet kit that includes a special tool for attaching the eyelets.

Step 1
Decide what size of ribbons and how many rolls of ribbons you would like to store in the ribbon box. Small eyelets can be used for 3/8” ribbons and large eyelets can be used for 5/8” ribbons up to 1 ½” ribbons. Calculate how many eyelets you will need.

Step 2
Measure the box with a ruler and mark where each of the eyelets will go with a pencil. Be sure to test the measurements by placing the eyelets over each mark.

Step 3
Cut a hole at each of the marks using a knife or a drill. Attach the eyelets to the box using the tool supplied in the eyelet kit. Use caution when working with sharp objects.

Step 4
Repeat these steps for the other side of the box. The box shown here uses 5 large eyelets positioned 1 ½ inches apart and 10 small eyelets positioned above and in between each of the large eyelets. This box stores 30 rolls of ribbon.

Congratulations, your ribbon box is now finished!
