Today my sister came over, and we whipped up a painting to hang in her new apartment. Believe it or not it only took us a few hours to complete. You can easily make your own with a canvas, a paint brush, 1/2″ masking tape, and three colors + white acrylic paint. Just tape up your canvas every which way, paint a gradient of each color in the taped segments, remove the tape, and enjoy!
This would also work as a ribbon holder/dispenser. You could make small slits in one of the long sides for the ribbons to go through. You could also put small pieces of blu-tac there to hold the ribbon & stop it retracting. Or unfurling.
