What can I use ribbon for?
Well, that depends on what you have in mind really, the only limit is your imagination! If you are looking for some inspiration, however, check out our handy guide to choosing ribbon below for further advice.
Textiles: If you are making your own clothes, or perhaps giving a new lease of life to an old favourite garment, a ribbon can be a great way to trim your project, add fine detail, or just to embellish with a bow. Satin, grosgrain and Petersham ribbons are particularly popular for use in making clothes. You could also use our ribbons as straps, waist ties or to edge pockets.
Floristry: A bouquet is not quite complete without a huge hand tied bow to set it off, and this range also includes floristry ribbons, purposely designed for your floral displays. There are lots of different ribbons you can use for this purpose, for example, a wired ribbon which helps to keep the bow in place, or perhaps burlap for a natural rustic creation.
Home Decor: You could also use this ribbon when creating your own home decor items. Whether you are making ties for your handcrafted curtains and drapes, adding a bow to jazz up an already loved item, or even to hang up pictures and pin boards, ribbon can be a fabulous way to breathe life into your home décor.
Festivals and Celebrations: Using ribbon is also a popular way of decorating the home at Christmas time, and can decorate the tree, form a part of a garland in the hallways or stairway, or even just be hung in glorious bows for a beautifully stylish effect. Or perhaps you are looking to decorate your wedding hall, tying ribbon in bows at the back of chairs will add a touch of elegance to your event. Alternatively, we have some darker ribbons for Halloween décor or bright and vibrant designs for a birthday party.
Accessories: You can also use ribbons for making your own accessories. Add trim to handbags, wraparound tie-ups to shoes, or perhaps a centre band for your new hat. We also have a wide choice of ribbons that are just perfect for hair accessories, and your little girl will love having a ribbon to tie her hair with. Check out our array of grosgrain ribbons as these are a popular ribbon for people hoping to make an ‘everyday’ hair bow. If you are looking for something a bit more formal, Satin Ribbons are lovely for finishing off a dressy outfit.
Creative Gift Wrapping: After purchasing the gift your loved one desires, creative gift wrapping can add an extra touch of something special. Co-ordinate your ribbons and papers or go for a bright, vibrant design, be creative and add a bauble or holly sprig at Christmas, or simplistic with a beautiful bow. Creative gift-wrapping is so much fun, and your lucky gift recipient is sure to be impressed.
There is so much that you can do with ribbon, and the only limit is your imagination. So, whether you are stocking up for your scrapbook, tying a bow to decorate a candle holder, or just looking to make that perfect cheerleader bow, shop our fabulous collection of ribbons today.
Is there anything else I need to remember?
Some of these products are sold by the metre so that you can order exactly how much you need for your desired project. We endeavour to always cut our orders in one piece, however, due to the size of the rolls provided by manufacturers, this cannot always be guaranteed. As a result, if you do make an order that is over 5m, it is not likely to be in one continuous piece. We would also like to remind you that, if you are purchasing some of our products online, please remember that the reproduction of colours may differ due to monitor calibration. We try to match our colours and patterns as close to the image shown on your screen as possible, but we cannot always guarantee a 100% match.
