Default What ribbon size do you prefer?

I am planning on buying some ribbon online. What do you find are the sizes you use most. 3/8, 5/8 or 7/8 for Organdy (dotted, plain, striped). I would like to stick with one size so I don't have to order as much. This is only for card-making and I have not used a lot of ribbon other than the SU 1/4 grosgrain.

I would love to hear what you use most. Thanks

3/8 is nice on cards. I like the SU! in color stiched ribbon on cards the white stich adds a lot.

I also LOVE the stiched ribbon. There is no way I could stick to one size GOOD FOR YOU! I wish I had your self-control.

Since you already like the SU! ribbon, you could try the new Striped Grosgrain, it's gorgeous and a perfect size for cards and also the Stitched Ribbon, it's just as perfect as the new Striped Ribbon.

Also, you could go to texasjodylynn's blog: http://confessionsofaribbonaddict.bl...ew-ribbon.html and participate in one of her ribbon shares and try out all kinds of ribbon colors and sizes for not a lot of $$.

Her ribbon is gorgeous!
