Clear Ribbon Box
Don't Get Your Hopes Up
What sold me was the description "To use, simply thread the ribbon through the opening at the top and secure the lid." Actually, there's a removable tray, which is not very deep, that lies over the top of the ribbon and forms a gap between the side through which to retrieve ribbon. There's no mechanism thought which to thread the ribbon and nothing to hold the spools in place. It's simply a longer and thinner box than the one in which I previously stored my ribbon. There is absolutely nothing special about this box. Save your money,

Good but not great
This is a good ribbon holder. As one reviewer stated the description is a bit misleading. You place the spools in the box with the ribbon ends hanging over the side of the box. The shallow tray is place on top. The tray is just a tray it doesn't lock down, but once you snap the lid down; a secure gap is created for the ends of the ribbon to slide through and keep the ends from sliding back inside. Unlike some ribbon organizers, this doesn't use a dowel to run through the spools, so it is very easy to remove or add a spool and with the adjustment keep the spools tight and organized. My only real complaint is that they don't offer this in a bigger size. I buy a lot of my ribbon in bulk and those spools are much larger. My fix to this was to also purchase the gift wrap box. I placed two of the ribbon spools side by side along their long ends, leaving me a square space to lay down the larger spools and stack them. It does let me keep all my ribbon together even if I have to remove my larger spools one at a time to use them. Also, for me the tray itself is pretty useless. To do the job of holding the ribbon ends it is narrower than the box, I use sheets of name tags and they are all too wide for the tray. It is nice that the boxes fit into the wrapping paper box end to end or side to side, but the fact is the wrapping paper box is too short for some of my rolls of paper as well.

Can't say enough GOOD!
This holder is a GREAT VALUE and very sturdy. I love it because it holds the larger rolls of ribbon like my SU 3/8" grosgrain which I had been unable to find anything else that would do that. The little tray on the top is quite handy as well.

Now I don't have to keep using tape to keep the ribbon on the spools and it is all neatly organized.
