Ribbons- there must be more than knot or bow?
 
I'm pretty much a one trick pony when it comes to adding ribbon to cards- knot or bow. Please help me find some new ways to add ribbon to cards.
Thanks!

Here's few. I'm a ribbon freak.

I love your ribbons. I have soooo many. These are great ideas. Perhaps I can even manage to reduce my stash (before I buy some more . . .)

Thanks for posting these lovelies, Brandi. Now if I can only figure out how you did some of them............

jeanstamping2 08-05-2010 04:49 PM

I think sometimes we all get into a Rut. Have you tried using your ribbon to make a Flower?

How about using the ribbon to hang something on your card.

Home Sweet Home

Happy Garden

Of course these aren't mine. But they are just to show how to use the darn ribbon we all love to have and use.

Karenwhite 08-05-2010 05:45 PM

Wow, thanks for sharing these super pictures of great cards with fantastic ideas.

NikiE 08-05-2010 06:17 PM

I also love the look of buttons in the centers of the knots or bows like these:

Holy Schmollie! You are super talented. Not only are you innovative with ribbon the rest of the cards are really amazing. Thanks for the inspiration.

tootsie roll 08-05-2010 08:25 PM

Beedubya and NikiE thank you so much for sharing your amazing cards- you both have great examples of unique ways to use ribbon.
NikiE how did you make this one? Did you actually get the ribbon through the holes?

Beedubya I love how you put the brads through the ribbon. Great idea! Thanks!

I love this shabby flower, made from fabric and ends of ribbon:

Cook22 08-05-2010 10:55 PM

Heating it with a heat gun, if you do vintage cards:
This one is a combined flower as suggested above with a heat gun to crinkle the ends.
Narrow ribbon, big button
Ribbon Frame (instructions in TLC212)

With the lists above being posts to cards rather than ideas, I just don't have time before work to check if I am making double suggestions. Green ribbon, not to wide, makes a great stem for a big flower.
And I also don't have time to find the cards I am looking for in my gallery, but it looks great threaded through some of the lacier punches, or the scallop borders with eyelet holes in them.
I'll be back after work to check out some of the other links above :D.

StampyCrafty 08-05-2010 10:58 PM

Wonderful use of ribbon. Very creative.

mnfroggie 08-05-2010 11:06 PM

Wow, you ladies have a lot of amazing ideas for ribbons! Thanks so much for sharing what you have done.

I am very guilty of getting in a rut with ribbon, too. I hardly ever do anything different, but here are a couple of things that I have done.

Magic Woven Ribbon Border

Ribbon Tree

Ribbon Tabs

Also you can make ribbon frames. I don't have a card of my own that is good example of this, so I did a search and here are the results.

Also, another thing that you can do is lacing. I haven't done that but here are a couple from my favorites.
Lacing example 1
Lacing example 2
Lacing to make a shoe shaped card

I did a post in 2008 about 101 uses for ribbon. You can find the info and link here. :)

Beedubya, you are amazing with ribbon.

Thank you! I was able to tie the ribbon through the button. The holes were a pretty good size on that button.

LeisaJane 08-06-2010 07:07 AM

My mom made this gorgeous baby card...love how she added the ribbon!

Carey's Baby Card

95% of the time I tie a simple knot or bow, too. But I did it a little differently on this card...

THANK YOU!

mouseprints 08-06-2010 12:55 PM

Wow, all your cards are great. My ribbon idea might be simple compared to yours, but I like the look of this and it works on "boyish" cards. It kind of looks like a bowtie. (sort of lol)

bound4london 08-06-2010 05:02 PM

Oh you are all so so talented. Signing up for the thread so I can come back when I have more time to read and look and enjoy--what I have seen so far in the few links I had time to check are amazing!!!

Tenakee 08-06-2010 05:51 PM

Subbing too - such neat ideas and beautiful cards!

mcfly_junior_88 08-06-2010 06:28 PM

I rummaged through the $1 ribbon bin at Michael's today just to play in an attempt to create something as beautiful as these examples!! :)

Beedubya 08-06-2010 06:29 PM

Thanks for the love, ladies! Great cards posted here...keep them coming! I have a ribbon scrap stash that is threatening to get up and walk so I'm totally loving this thread!

creatingisfun 08-06-2010 06:54 PM

I did these flowers, by twisting the ribbon and using heat gun.

JoBear2 08-07-2010 05:23 PM

Wow - so many fantastic ideas!!
 
Gosh, I hadn't realise how many different ways you can use ribbon - I'm pretty much a one-trick-pony too.

One thing that I do quite a bit, but isn't anything fancy - it's just to add a bit of interest, is add a little scrap of ribbon in a different colour when I am tying a knot. Is good for using up little scraps that I just can't seem to throw away!! See my two examples here:

Woof! Here's a gift for you!
Vintage Peaceful Wishes

Thanks everyone for all your fabulous ideas!!
