3 ways to use up your ribbon scraps! :)


Daddy's girls

Today I'm sharing 3 ways to use up your ribbon scraps! :) I love to use ribbon and sometimes I find myself with really small pieces of ribbon that are too short to do anything elaborate with but seem a tad wasteful to throw away...ever had this dilemma? 


1. For a slightly longer piece of ribbon, tie a small bow and adhere to page with a brad. 


2. Consolidate the shorter ones for a really fun banner! They don't even need to match!


3. Use a patterned ribbon as a cool border!


There you have it, 3 ways to use up your ribbon scraps! :) I was inspired by Sketchy Thursdays. :)
[This layout was created for my friend Spardha and features her, her sister and their father.]

Supplies: Patterned paper: American Crafts, Maya Mists, buttons, Prima canvas letters, SRM stickers, thread. 

P/s: Don't forget about my guest Ujjwal's embossing challenge...it ends on Friday! :)

*Edited* This layout was a Sketchy Thursdays fave! :)

I just love this layout!!!!! Never thought to keep ribbon scraps, but now that I've seen you use them as banners, I will most definitely keep them. Love your misting. I've never quite been able to master misting.
