Mod Podge'd Cocoa Container

I was getting tired of storing my ribbon scraps in a shoe box. It was messy, unorganized, and not cutely stored. So I cleaned out an empty Cocoa Mix container and Mod Podge'd scrapbook paper on it. I cut the letters out of cardstock on my Cricut, then Mod Podge'd those on too. Sealing it all with another layer of Mod Podge.
I had cut 80+ sheets of vinyl for my Church's "Super Saturday" craft day, and each tube of vinyl came with a giant popsicle stick to rub the vinyl on with. I saved all those and quickly found a use for them. I wrapped my ribbon scraps around them and then stored them neatly in the cocoa container.
I still have smaller scraps that weren't really worth wrapping around the stick a couple times, so I'm going to cover another container soon and toss all the tiny scraps in there. I've started saving them if they are 2" or more now . . . in hopes of making a scrap ribbon belt like Ashley did at Lil Blue Boo.
