This was more of an experiment, because I had this thing in my notebook and I wanted to make it real. The biggest challenge was to figure out what to use for the strong horizontals and verticals. The sticks are from Alice's collection (she used to bring home a stick every time she walked home. We still tease her about her retriever heritage.) The ribbon is not the strongest choice for verticals, I prefer the craft sticks (not popsicle sticks – thicker and nicer wood) but those are as long as they come.
In a valiant attempt to get things OUT of the house, I've listed this on Etsy as well.
