May Arts:: Ribbon Scrap Blog Hop

Do you have a huge pile of ribbon scraps like I do? Beauties that you just can't seem to toss no matter what length they are? May Arts is showcasing many ways to use up your ribbon scraps with a cool blog hop. There is even a grab bag of May Arts Ribbon as a prize, and believe me, this grab bag is huge and full of the prettiest ribbon you ever did see!

I needed some quick thank you gifts so my son and I made some homemade chocolate chip cookies, bagged them up, and ransacked my ribbon scrap bin to find some coordinating ribbon. Here I tied off the bag with beautiful 1.5" Sheer Classic White Floral Print 517-15-01and coordinating 1" Sheer Ribbon in Peach C12 and Apricot C13, as well as a stray silk hydrangea bloom. I love the coordinating sheer from different lines.

This next bag is tied with 3/4" Twill Mauve Chevron in 382-34-19, a few strips of 1/2" Solid White Wrinkle Ribbon in EA01 and finished with a second bow made from Grape Burlap String in SM36.

Such a simple way to dress up a gift! I love to mix and match colors, hues, widths and textures: May Arts Ribbon has so many different choices that coordinate!
