If you’re anything like us, you have tons of ribbon odds and ends lying around. Today’s tutorial gives you eight creative and easy ways of using up your stash of extras!
Add Sass to an Outfit
Ribbon isn’t just for little girl dresses. A piece of pretty ribbon tied around your waist or just under your bust adds color and fun to an otherwise boring blouse or dress.
Hang a pretty piece of ribbon on the wall and then hang your birthday or holiday cards off of the ribbon. Easy!
Embellish your applique designs
Adding a little bow to an applique design is an easy way to add a feminine touch. It’s an simple way to add versatility to your library of designs.
Make a choker
Tie a pretty ribbon around your neck for a quick choker. You can even add a pendant or charm.
Use ribbon to hang tags on bins and baskets to help keep track of what goes where. For younger kids who can’t yet read, you can print pictures to go on the tags to help them keep tidy. (Just make sure to keep ribbon out of reach of any littles under the age of 3).
Add ribbon to party invites, table tents, and other party items for an added touch of class.
Ribbon mini necktie
Tie your ribbon like a necktie, then cut the bottom to a point. Use it to make a card for dad or decorate a guy gift.
Adorn a picture frame
Use a ⅛ inch hole punch to add holes to a matt, then string ribbon through.
