I saw a project a while ago

on Rocky Mountain Hobbies They were doing the class as a cybercrop and they had many great projects. I kept this one in the back of my head as I did not have the supplies at the time. My biggest dilemma has been trying to figure out what to use for clips that wouldn't break the bank. I was at a yardsale one Sunday morning and found a whole bag of curtain clips for .25. I wasn't sure if these were my answer but I couldn't pass them up!!

I used elecrical ties to put them into place on the lampshade ring. One to have the clip going in the direction I wanted and the other to hold it on the ring. Now, I will tell you if you have problems with your hands this is not the clip for you as they are stiff to open. I am still on the lookout for different clips that are easier to use if anyone has a suggestion.

This one has 3 tiers as I had an oddball shade that I could turn upside down and place on the top. I also have not painted this yet as we have purchased a house (instead of building) and I am not sure what colour to paint it, but I do know it will look good in my new room and be practical also!! If you check out the Rocky Mountain Class they will show you just what you need to make your own Spinner Rack. And trust me, once you get digging, you do have enough packages to fill at least one of these!!!

So clever, I have the one you pay a lot of money for but I do love it for my unmounted stamps. It works great. It came with a lot of clips.
