Wowza, these samples are amazing. Great idea for a thread!

The Dirty Dozen did a "Tie One On" theme back in '07. If you're a fan club member, you can check that out for some pretty cool ideas.

Here are a few I've done that I liked:

Threaded ribbon

Ribbon bloom

Ribbon Tie

Woven Ribbon ~ this one is in the Dirty Dozen gallery and is not viewable unless you're a FC member (sorry )

I can't wait to see more!

You can use ribbon scraps and adhere them to a piece of chipboard, then die cut a shape from the area on the chip board you covered in ribbon, this makes a very unique embellishment and it uses up all those scraps pieces. Archivers had a sample card on their website last time i looked.

Love these ideas! Ribbon has become my new love and I buying and buying in all kinds of colors. I have been looking for new ideas and stumbled onto this thread! Happy, happy! I will add some of the ones I have found.

I found this at Martha Stewart site:

Ribbon Star Ornaments and more creative crafts projects, templates, tips, clip-art, patterns, and ideas on marthastewart.com

It's tricky, but try a few times it gets easier. My problem is the end, and hiding the tails.

Default Me too!

I do a few different things with ribbon. You can see a few examples here:
Two Stripes (even better when you frame an acetate window)
Wrap around a frame
as an edge
multicolored over a strip of c/s (one of my faves!)
as a ruffle for a baby card
as pulls for multiple tags
Honestly, I just *love* ribbon! (another fave of mine is to glue some pearls/gems/dew drops on top of ribbon that looks too 'plain' - really takes it up a notch!)

I like using ribbon vertically instead of horizontally:

IC223 Vintage Rose by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

And these examples use cord instead of ribbon but you could easily substitute narrow ribbon:

WT265 Diamond Rose by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

CAS CC259 CCC10 Olympic Christmas Ornament 2 by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Belated Birthday Blossoms by susanbri - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Diane, like you I love ribbon, and I want to use it in creative ways, so this is really a wonderful resource.

Also, I have been looking for books that deal exclusively or almost exclusively with ribbon. Any suggestions? So far I have found one, which I may order.

I've seen this book called Ribbonrie at Michaels a few times. Never bought it - but it does look pretty when I've paged through it.

Have to check it out!

I notice that Amazon does have a few titles, and I think I will also try Alibris. They have great prices. Usually I buy school books from them, but had not thought to see if they have craft books.

For me, personally, no. I have a craft store that has gobs of ribbon, I like clearance, and sale, and coupon shopping. Ribbon in a club, not for me.

Thanks for your answer. When I was still living in Australia, there was a really cheap shop where I could buy my ribbons. We have not such craft shops here in Bali.

And I appreciate that. So for someone in your position, a club might be the way to go. Online shopping as well. I ran across a couple of good online sources of ribbon. If you want I will post them.

Default paper punch

I was wondering also about making your own buttons, with a circle paper punch and adding larger holes to tie ribbon through. Even clear acrylic buttons or designer paper.

does anyone know of a company that has ribbon sample kits? I have so much cardstock and designer paper already, would hate to find out that none of it matches. that's the only reason I haven't ordered online. but time to
stamp has some tempting satin ribbon and their 5 choices, 25 yards for 9.95
doesn't seem like a bad deal
