Keep a variety of ribbon on hand for last minute touches!

In an earlier blog, we discussed a few interesting occasions when ribbons could be used.  However we all know there are many more fun and creative uses for ribbons.  While that earlier post dealt with event ideas, today we would like to suggest more everyday uses.

Personalized two tone ribbon, gingham ribbon and satin ribbon.

Stationery: Personalize your letter or card with a small bit of personalized ribbon.  Taking the time to tie the ribbon in a bow or around a gift card, adds a special touch that says to that person you are sending it to how much you care and appreciate them.

Gingham ribbon, satin ribbon, polka dot ribbon - all unique ways to embellish your card or gift.

Scrap-booking: Ribbon can be used a hundred ways when scrap-booking. Create a frame by stitching several lengths of ribbon around the border of each page or gluing it down down around the outside of a photograph.  Try enhancing the spiral binding with several little bows!

Decorating: Use ribbon on simple crafts like floral arrangements  or gift baskets.  A little more creative?  Try tying a piece of ribbon around your favorite hat or bag to add a little bit of flair.

There are hundreds of ways in which ribbon can be used to add that little something extra to your everyday life.  For more ideas or to add your own, feel free to email us at

Best Always,
