This Week's Challenge is Ribbon

I don't know about the rest of you, but I have drawers full of ribbon, boxes of ribbon, bags of ribbon, and jars with pieces of ribbon that I definitely need to use up. So open your drawers, dig in those bags, and pull out those pieces from your jars to show us your creative way of using ribbon.

Again this week, I would like to share so inspiration from our DT talk on our message board of ways to use our feature project.
* Make ribbon flowers
* Use inks and chalks to change the color of plain white ribbon
* Stamp a decorative border onto the ribbon
* Use letter stamps to add small bits of journaling to your ribbon strips
* Set eyelets throughout the length of the ribbon to create a funky trim for your layout
* Tie it to a journaling tag
* Tie it to the bottom of a photo mat
* Make a bow
* Make a knot
* Thread beads or charms along the length of the ribbon
* Use it as a simple page border
* Fold thick ribbon diagonally to make your own photo corners
* Place a decorative brad in the center of small ribbon strips to make a faux flower embellishment
* Use small strips of ribbon to cover chipboard shapes
* Use ribbon scraps and rhinestones to create candles on a birthday cake die cut
* Tie it around a paper clip type embellie.
* Use it to dangle a charm.
* Thread the smaller thinner ribbon through a larger button's holes, and use the button as a ribbon slide.
*Tie a thinner piece of ribbon to a chipboard letter, especially cute on the first letter of your title.
* Fill in the negative space on letter die cuts, or the negative space from chipboard letters
