The Ribbon Resource:: Kid's Craft Hop

The Ribbonistas from The Ribbon Resource, the May Arts Ribbon Retail Store, are hopping every Friday until Christmas to give you inspiration and chances to win some fabulous May Arts ribbon!

Today we are showcasing Crafting with Kids!

I "borrowed" my cousin's little girl to help with this project, and had a lot of fun! We used the 5/8" red, turquoise, and light pink elastic ribbon available at The Ribbon Resource to make custom, festive hair ties. We used about 7" of elastic ribbon for each tie.

These elastic hair ties are still popular and are super easy to make with children so that they feel a sense of pride when giving them as gifts to their friends. We simply chose some small stamps and inked the elastic ribbon with permanent ink. We tied the ends together and added them on a cute tag strung with Red and White Baker's Twine.

These are the Ribbonistas participating today:
