Ribbon stand

Hello Bloggers. Sorry for not showing any cards as I've been feeling unwell. I had 3 migranes in a week which is very rare and now still unwell with lightheaded and tickly throat so hopefully get my mojo back by next week. Yesterday I won Paula's Candy which is a nice surprise and cheered me up. Anyway I saw this project while I was blogging, sorry forgot to take note the name. Its a ribbon stand so I ask hubby to make one for me and I painted with Anita's 3D paint. I had this paint many years ago so I don't know why I bought it for. If you fancy one and here are my measurements. The base is 14cm square and the pole is 45cm. The knob again I had it for ages.
Nice and Tidy
