7 Ways - Ribbon

With everyone's scrapping budget dwindling lately - including mine, I thought that it would be best to try to use up those scraps in unique ways so I thought that I would start posting a 7 ways to use your scraps series.  Today, I will start with ribbon.  While there are many ways to use ribbon, I am focusing on ribbon scraps - those smaller pieces that can still enhance my projects.  Here are 7 ways to use up those scraps:

1.  Make a colorful fringe:

2.  Make a funky flower!  I layered the scraps on a circle and then topped with a Prima, button, and piece of ribbon.
3.  Layer them horizontally or vertically to create a piece of background "paper."
4.  Cut the scraps into small pieces to create a mosaic:
5.  Sew a strip of scraps together to make a unique pieced trim!
6.  Layer the ribbons on top of each other to make them pop!
7.  Embellish a handmade gift tag!

I hope that you enjoyedmy seven ways to use ribbon scraps.  Check back for next week's 7 ways to use up your letter stickers/rub-ons/Thickers!
