The red and green polka dots simply make me smile. The holders are made using PVC pipe, hot glue and ribbon. I made the first set 2" tall, then decided to try another set at 1 1/2" tall. I used some green Stampin' Up ribbon that I've had in my stash for several years for this set of 10.
In all honesty, the reason this ribbon has been in my stash is that I didn't like the color and couldn't find a use for it. However, I really like the way it looks made into napkin holders that can be used year round.
Next I decided to create a couple of sets as gifts for friends. (Wasn't it lucky for me that Hobby Lobby had all their ribbon on sale for 50% off last week!) I made a set of 8 purple holders for one friend and a set of 6 striped holders for a Christmas gift for another friend. These are also 1 1/2" tall.
And finally, since there was 8" of PVC pipe left, I made a set of 8 one-inch holders for me in my favorite color.
Every time I completed a set, I decided that was my favorite one! I really like the way they all turned out and am looking forward to using these and giving them as gifts. Which ones do you like best?
