These are just beautiful and what an ingenious way to use up those ribbon scraps! Thanks for sharing!


How fabulous! Love all 3 cards. Thanks for the wonderful idea.

Diane Oliver

Gretchen just love your cards and so creative... and what a great use of ribbon scraps! I especially like the SUN card. So perfect with the sentiment.
PS: I have SOOOOO much scrap "stuff" (ribbon, papers, cs, etc) and just can't bear to throw anything away. I've been trying so hard to thin out and give it away with the table favors, but it seems I never catch up! hugs.

Sue Stevens

You are just too smart & clever! Wonderful use of ribbon scraps. You've inspired me to look at mine! Sue


what great ideas and how ingenious. I have a basket of scraps! Thanks

Sue Scheets

Thanks for the great ideas. Can't wait to use them on a class I am having on the 31st called Leftovers, but not Meatloaf.

Sue Erickson

What a wonderful use of ribbon scraps!


I love all your creations, but the heart card is definitely my favorite! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

Carol Carriveau

Thanks for inspiring us with these fabulous cards...no, my ribbon scraps don't some near your 'collection', but I'll be sure to put them to great use following your samples. Your creativity is amazing...thank you!


Gretchen!!! Thank you so much for sharing these awesome ideas for ribbon scraps! I can't wait to case some of these!

Great ideas! I have tons of ribbon now that so much as retired. I think the heart is my favorite!

Terry Molineux

Wow Gretchen what great ideas love it....My favorit are the last two cards. I favor the heart one the most though...love them! Thanks for sharing. I don't have any scraps but I have rolls and rolls of retired ribbon that I probably can open up a ribbon store and be in business for three years! LOL No joke!

Super cute cards Gretchen! I've been just the opposite, after 6.5 yrs of this I'm just now getting to where I think to use ribbon more. I've never been a big ribbon user or buyer. But of course most of the ribbon I do have is retired. This is a great way to use it up! Some years ago I cased something I saw where someone had done basically what you did with the heart card, but with the positive shape. They glued ribbon on CS horizontally, then cut it out with the butterfly die, so they had a ribbon butterfly embellishment. I need to make some more of those as well with my retired ribbon.

What a brilliant idea! I love the heart one the best! I am going to do that for my club and have a small contest for the winner! Love your blog!

Hi Gretchen,

I always tease the ladies at my class, that the only exercise I get is tie-bow....ha! I have a jar too. When it gets full I sit and tie bows out of all them and then bag them up into bags of so many, and they go as door prizes. Those "bag o' bows" go fast. No one wants to tie bows, and they just grab one out of the bag and glue dot it on.


Mary Colemon

My ribbon scrap container looks like yours! I 'found' it again just the other day. What great ideas you have for all those little bits and pieces. Thanks so much!


Fabulous ideas for using up ribbon scraps! I have a ton of 'em!
I'm so happy that I inspired you to create that sunshine card - it's so bright and happy!

barb hendrickson

What awesome ideas! Can't wait to share them with my ladies. ;)
