    So you cut the pieces of wood like in the pictures above, drill 2 holes and paste filt (don't know the english word) to it and then make a cut in the front, the same width as the ribbon.....

    Then you secure it with 2 screws. Don't over tighten the screws or you will compress the ribbon too much.

    Then you paste filt to the rest of the wooden parts.....and there you go! If you have a long ribbon it can stick out at the back and it's not in the way! Tell me what you think.
