Here at Wrappings and Bows, we have a fabulous selection of ribbons, suitable for all sorts of crafts. But what do you do with yours?

Obviously, they are fantastic for gift wrapping projects, and look superb when you use a variety of colours and styles to tie off cellophane wrap and cellophane gift bags. In particular, we love to use wide satin ribbon and then layer it with a pretty patterned design, such as our polka dot grosgrain ribbon, or create a country look with some pretty checked gingham ribbon.

But, if you like to be really creative, ribbon is a really cost effective way to spruce up tired items, a good way to do some up cycling. You can add a ribbon frill to the edge of a plain cushion. Use 2  colours of satin ribbon in different widths to create a coordinated look. Or maybe re-cover a lampshade and trim with ribbon.

We have 2 ranges of double satin ribbon in stock, one is the Shindo brand, which is a lovely premium quality ribbon in a range of 6 widths, 3mm, 6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 25mm and 38mm. we stock around 30 colours in his range. Alternatively, we have our budget satin ribbon which is soft and slightly lighter in weight, but ideal for crafting. We have around 20 colours in this range and 4 widths, 3mm, 10mm, 16mm and 25mm. Remember that cutting ribbon at a slight angle, or dabbing the edges with a bit of PVA glue will help to prevent fraying.

If you like to make hair bands and bows, then grosgrain ribbon is ideal for this purpose. Have a look through our range, we have plain grosgrain in 2 widths, 10mm and 25mm and also some lovely polka dot grosgrain ribbon which co-ordinates well.
