Great Buy - Ribbons

Ribbons Ribbons!. I found this set of ribbons at Costco. It's wonderful! There's 40 ribbons at 4 yards each for a total of 480 ft. The cost of this set is $20.00. Wow, that's cheap for the amount of ribbon and the quality. Most of them are are satin or have a fabric feel to them. It's a great textural contrast to paper.

I believe ribbons can make a "blah" card, into a "wow" card by just adding this simple element.

I love ribbons. Whenever Joann or Micheal have them on sale for a $1.00. . .I buy at least 20 of them. I have so many ribbons, they're coming out of my ears. I have a bad habit of hoarding them. As many as I have, I am very conservative on the amount I use on a card. I don't like to waste them and I don't wrap them around the card. To avoid waste, I cut just the right amount and tape both ends to the back rather than wrapping it around.

Anyway, check it out when you stop by at Costco.

Until later. . .
