I have two daughters. And back when they were little (and I could get them to wear ribbons in their hair with a bit of bribery), they had a huge bow collection. I’m talking HYUUUGE!!!
My girls happened to be pint-sized models for a hair bow company at one point as toddlers and we were compensated with bows, bows, and more bows! What we did not get from that company, I made myself to match every.single.outfit they had. So needless to say, I have a LOT of ribbon left over in my stash!
It’s a no-brainer that ribbons would be next on my list for a Stash Challenge! Below are a few ribbon ideas of my own, and then read on to see what the Design Team has created and how they incorporate ribbons into their own projects.
“Amazing” by Natalie Strand
We are absolutely “amazed” by Natalie’s use of ribbon combined with washi to make her flag/banner accents! Just so colorful and fun!
We love the details of Natalie’s flags- some are cut with a straight edge, some at an angle, while others are notched!
“China” by Vicki Von Richter
Vicki chose a length of white decorative trim to accent her page. She used it to separate her red striped paper from the yellow pattern. Such a beautiful and clever technique!
The red padded applique adds a touch of whimsy while the tiny gold and red facets she used across the page lends just a bit of sparkle. Love these embellishments!
“My Little Princess” by Heather Ribble
We are just dying of princess cuteness overload with Heather’s adorable page! That smile on her little girl’s face is precious and we LOVE these absolutely perfect princess ribbons!
Like Vicki, Heather also used a padded applique from one of the many sets available from our sister company- Scraps & Ink Crafts. The bright, sparkly pink applique is layered over a yellow lacy castle die cut for a unique and lovely page accent.
“What a Sweet Day” by Emily Adams
Free giant cinnamon roll? Sweet day indeed! Emily created this deliciously fun page using a lovely silvery grey satin ribbon to divide her chevron patterned paper from her background.
We also love how she combined the black and gold together to create her eye-catching title!
The color of the ribbon is carried over to the frosted grey mouse head paper clip accent tucked behind her photo and secured with a bit of of safari-print washi tape. What a fun and unique combination of elements!
Do you have some ribbon (okay, a LOT of ribbon if you’re like me) and have been wanting to use it up? We hope these ideas have inspired you to do just that!
