Here are a few ideas from Blogs that I have saved in My Browser Favourites:

Barbara Shram - Explore Dream Discover - Ribbon Flower Goodness
Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits - Sailor's Knot

Brenda Weaver - Sweet Paper Treats - Makeover Monday Ribbon Scraps
(Brenda has several different ideas - one idea is very similar to the butterfly scraps one, but there are more ideas - scroll down for a looky)

Juliana Michaels - 17turtles - Ribbons and Bows - oh my!

Flourishes - Rolled Flowers (these are just AMAZING!!)

Thanks to Tootsie roll who started this thread - it's been great to see so many ideas from all those amazingly talented people out there!

Oh you have started a fantastic thread here. I love seeing everyone's samples. Great inspiration!!!! Going through my gallery made me realize I have become a one trick pony. I mostly tie knots. Thanks for making me see other possibilities I have forgotten.

Here are a few of my cards showing ribbon ideas:
BORDER using small ribbon scraps
WITH EYELETS this was in place of a panel on a sketch (i love eyelets)
BUTTONS AND BOWS (I made a knot then stitched my buttons to it)
FRINGE (tied ribbon through my punched border)
THREADED EYELET (ribbon threaded through small hole so it holds by itself)
SMALL PURSE (uses a scrap piece of ribbon and round label punch, I knot the ends in front)

I was a member many,many years ago and just loved getting these samples. Home Sew has been in business for over 50 years, so they are pretty reliable. Their ribbons in their catalog are very reasonably priced also, if you need bigger amounts.

Hi there, girls!
I thought I might throw in a few ideas from my own playground

I just made this card with ribbon "grass" for this week's technique challenge, also used this technique on this one;

Here I used it to "hang" a panel on;

I like using them instead of panels, or as a border: examples here, here and here

...and a few more ideas: ribbon flowers; pleating & stapling; and different finishes here and here

Hope this helps!

If you are up for a challenge, try triaxial weaving with ribbons. Here is a card I made on Monday, but actually weaved the ribbon a few years ago.
TLC286 Quilted Butterfly by greenmaytag - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

If you Google triaxial weaving, there are quite a few sites that will give you directions and different variations. Here is just one that shows a good picture.

More Triaxial Weave

Good luck everyone.

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 .
I tried finding the instructions for the Ribbon Frame TLC212, but had no luck. I keep finding beautiful examples, but no "how-to". Can you help me?

easiest way I think might be to do a search in the search bar to the left. type in tlc212 and see what you come up with, and do the search in forums not gallery.

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

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.
I like the flat use of your ribbon. I'm always looking for flat use of my ribbon so it is not bulky to mail.

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!!
Love your Peaceful wishes card -- great design, colors and ribbon.

Here is one I just did using the wide 1 1/4 SU grosgrain ribbon- frayed one edge and used the part I pulled out to thread a button.
