But I don't keep rice in them as was originally intended, nor do I keep them in the kitchen. Is that what you thought? No, I keep my ribbon stash in them! R for ribbon. Which is leading me, very slowly you must be thinking, to my little gift idea for a crafty friend. This is easy, quick and good for popping in with something else perhaps. All you need is wooden dolly pegs, ribbon and a pin, voila!!
Meet Felicity, Harriet and Margaret, who once they were spruced up wanted a bit of a photo shoot and were not satisfied with the mere backdrop of the rice canister. "But it's ribbon, you love ribbon, you drape yourself in ribbon!!" They stood firm, or should I say, lolled around requesting champagne and hors d'oeuvres.
I wouldn't say they were cheap, I can hear the outcry already, but they are definitely fun and worthy of giving away!
