Ribbon makes my world go round!
Do you like ribbon as much as I do? Hopefully not because my husband says it is a sickness.
I could sit and look at ribbon all day long - it's like a whole bunch of pretty little rainbows inside the house!
I think they're too pretty not to share! You should click on the pictures and see the TEXTURES on each of the rolls...it is amazing!
The BIG ric rac has a ribbed texture and is very soft and pliable. The pom-pom edged ribbons have little fluffy poms on the edges - soft and cute! The webby stuff (in orange and black) is amazing when layered with a solid ribbon underneath!
Then there's the velvet corduroy ribbon - just like the fabric...ribbed, soft, and velvety!
The white edge stitched Grosgrain is deeply saturated with color - and it is a nice WIDE 1" in width!
Ruffled edged suede has been on my list for a long time - but after seeing it at the scrapbook store for $.75 a foot, I decided to wait, save my money and buy it this way instead... it came out to less than a dollar a YARD...not a foot! :) Oh happy day for me, sad day for hubby...there is ribbon everywhere!
Each roll has between 10 and 30 yards. That's a lot even if you like ribbon a lot, isn't it? I do need to sell some of it...the good news is that I will sell it at very, very good prices! I know of two people that were interested so far....if anyone else would like some, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you prices or do you think it's better to post it here?
Later I might get to post the cards I made yesterday... :)
