This is such a fun and thoughtful giveaway! Thank you! I love ribbons in fuchsia and bright orange! I use them for gift bags and for decorating the spines of Pocket Letters!

CookieMomster78 05/12/2020 #

My favorite colors of ribbon are green, blue, purple, black ,white, brown, tan, or neutral.


I use ribbon mostly for creating art journal pockets, accenting ATCs, weaving into coasters, and making it into flowers to accent my 3-D assemblage. Sometimes I even have a scrap of some left, that I like so much, I will simply tie it into a single overhand knot then glue it down on a page in my scrapbook or diary! I have a few ribbons I enjoy so much that they go in my hair sometimes to tie it back! Lastly, I crochet some of it into Hawaiian "forever lei" to gift friends and family on a special occasion!

I love any color ribbon! I use in craft kits that I donate to young girls and women who are interested in various crafts that live in shelters. I also use as an embellishment on gift baskets and goody bags that I donate to various groups throughout the year. Plus I actually use in my own crafting on cards... pocket letters...journals...etc. This is very thoughtful and generous of you.

megan1230 05/12/2020 #

Love this sweet idea! I like purple and blues and anything shiny but I use a lot of beige and pinks, too! I use them to pretty up journals, atcs, and my favorite, snail mail!

Burger1girl 05/12/2020 #

Dark greens, browns in a scales, dark lavender, (vintage type colors) I use them for ATC and wrapping book swaps. ALso surprise gifts. I love surprising ppl with special wrapping and boost someones spirit. Thank you for sharing your ribbons! You are too kind!! Thank you!!

lovetherain 05/12/2020 #

Thank you for hosting this giveaway. I can use all colors, but my favorites are pastels like pale pink, mint green, and light blue. I can always use red and black too. I use ribbons for ATCs and deco books, to add texture. But lately I've been using them to tie packages.

thebragal 05/12/2020 #

I have a USA address you can send to. (Or I can send the difference for shipping) I love anything that ties well into bows. I use mostly 1/4-1 1/4” wide pastel, vintage or subdued colours as well as any neutrals. I use it on ATCs, cards, tags and sometimes small packages.

shalvorsen 05/12/2020 #

I love ribbon so much and use it in many ways! I love all colors, but have a special love for greens, pinks and brown/cream colors. I love to make tassels for junk journals and adorn many types of embellishments with pretty ribbon. Bows are always fun. Thank you for the chance to win some ribbon :D You're so kind!

Christianmom 05/12/2020 #

This is a very thoughtful of you. My favorite ribbon colors are blue, lavender, bright colored ribbon and pastels. I use mine making crosses, use in my bookmarks I make, use in tags I make, tie around goodie bags. Thank you for the chance to win some ribbon.

heavree 05/12/2020 #

That is very kind of you. I have a very small ribbon collection. I have been using wider ribbons to make pockets with for goodies I also use lace and smaller ribbon for tags and embellishments. I tend to use blues and pinks mostly. Hoping to broaden that eventually but they’re my comfort zone for now. Best of luck. Wishing everyone well!

Jsereg001 05/12/2020 #

Thanks for the swap!! My favorite colors of ribbon are teal, blues, purples and anything rainbow!!! I love to make ribbon dolls or use scraps to make bows for whimsy jars or pocket letters!!

swiftbrooks 05/12/2020 #

WOW!! How generous of you! Thanks! I love any color of ribbon as well. I mainly use ribbon on cards and ATCs. They add a fun layer of dimension and something to touch as well. :D

PerArduaAdAlta 05/12/2020 #

That is so nice! There are way more lovely people here than not 💖

I use them for accents, ties, binding and edging covers, creating or tieing little packets. I save the little bits because the colors and shine are so vibrant. My favorite colors are browns and creams (and black), and earthy, natural tones of the other colors, eggplant, goldenrod, olive, greens are lovely. I'm not a fan of red, and pinks not very much, unless they're dusty or natural. But I also like turquoise and greens and purples and yellows and blues! I am very easy to please and appreciate your generosity! 💐

lynnpinkdaisy 05/13/2020 #

My favorite colors of ribbon are vintage/country colors like rust, uniform blue, browns, anything in calico, ivory, burgundy red, wine, hunter green, sage green, soft yellow, etc. I use them in the journals I make, on pocket cards, to tie up wrapped gifts, journal tags, and for journaling kits.

ablev92 05/13/2020 #

Thanks so much for the giveaway! My favorite colors of ribbon are light blues, purples, light greens and any ribbon that is sheer or see through and has that hint of glitter to it. I currently love making ribbon and trim tassels with any fun ribbon I have around. I also love edging my pocket letters with ribbon if I have some that go with the theme.

Hyshu 05/13/2020 #

My favorite colors of ribbon are white, purple and whatever color story I am working with! I use ribbon mostly on the front of the cards I make and scrap booking pages. Thank you for the giveaway!

Dibrittain 05/13/2020 #

I Love purple and black ribbon the most and some burgundy. I mostly have a ton of Halloween ribbon. I like to use in decos and crafting things.

Rabbitfreedom 05/13/2020 #

I love all things Halloween, so I used a lot of black, orange and purple ribbon in my crafting! I just completed a ribbon wreath, using small bits of ribbon I had left over from other projects. I incorporate it into book making, 3D projects and flower making! Thanks for hosting such a fun swap!

AliCrafter 05/13/2020 #

I am an absolute ribbon hoarder, and absolutely addicted. It's not like I need more ribbon, but I certainly WANT more!!! I love teals and purples but when it comes to ribbon I do not have any color preferences. I tend to use ribbon a lot as embellishments on cards, flipbooks and that sort of thing. I also use it like many of the above posters. There are so many ways to enhance a project with ribbon. The only type I don't generally use is gros gain, but there are exceptions. Thank you for the chance to add to my hoard!

brooklynboo 05/13/2020 #

I love anything with glitter! and pink and black! I use ribbon for lots of things. I use it to decorate cards, and lately my daughters hair!

Nevi2018 05/14/2020 #

How Sweet of you!! I Love mostly thinner to Medium ribboms of all kinds of colors and paterns. I like brights though Best. Im a Rainbow Lover. My Husband HATES it calls it too busy!! LOL!!

Bluegem 05/15/2020 #

Thank you , Wow this is wonderful giveaway. Good Luck ladies! I love the color Pink, blush and any color of the rainbow is fine. Big or small polkadots or stripes are perfect. If I would be so lucky I would love a rainbow of colors, right! I would use them to wrap small gifts for my Happy Mail, Tags and ATC's. My artbook too my hair. Thanks again this is so sweet.

arystotle 05/15/2020 #

I love all colors of ribbon especially shiny glittery ribbons..I use them on ATCs, bookmarks and cards. Right now i already have a lot of pink so would love other colors.

suzmoon 05/16/2020 #

Awesome giveaway! My fave colors are hot pink and teal. I like all ribbons but I like decorative ribbons the best such as those with Pom poms and folded trims. I like to use them to make cards and junk journal covers.

Autist 05/16/2020 #

I love ribbon. I have a collection of fun ribbons that I have collected over the years. They are fun to add to other projects, but I love making ribbon chandeliers and curtains. They add great accents to jars and door knobs too. I love every color of the rainbow, but love greens and sparkly ones best!

kittyhahahotbot 05/16/2020 #

Thank you! Purple, yellow/gold, green, pinks. Thank you!

AZmom875 05/16/2020 #

My favorite color is green, but I find that I prefer to use neutral ribbon colors for tags, and even borders on atcs. I find the beige, the browns, the blacks tend to add the most interest to the art projects.

Ribbons also make nice additions to junk journals. In that case I use something colorful and attention getting.

piperwashere 05/17/2020 #

My favorite color is purple! I'm trying to start decorating my envelopes and other things with ribbon since I have some in my mom's old stash

Kittybob83 05/17/2020 #

I like brown, tan, red, black, blue.. I would use any ribbons for spine dangles.

KaliOya 05/18/2020 #

I enjoy the colors: orange, purple and green. I like using ribbons with prints on them especially to decorate my handmade envelopes with. I sometimes use ribbons to make handmade stationery. Thank you for this swap. Such a sweet and generous swap!!!

Ace330660 05/18/2020 #

I really love all colors, but darker shades of blue and purple are my favorites! I don't have much in my stash. I mostly make tassels and add ribbon to my junk journals. Thanks for the giveaway!

ArtyBeth3 05/18/2020 #

What a wonderful giveaway offer. I love the look of ribbon as a handmade card embellishment, and that’s primarily what I use it for. As to colors, favorites include any shade of red, pink, green, blue purple, gold, kraft, or even white.

[I enjoyed the art on your website. I love to make encouragement cards with scripture. God bless you.]

EverydayAngels 05/18/2020 #

What an absolutely amazing and generous idea. I love ribbons of all colors but I am greatly lacking in this area of my stash. I am just now getting really into my creative side (a little late in life,,, as I feel like I am 5 again) and am learning how to make journals and ATCs and every crafty fun thing I can get my hands on. Maybe its menopause, but I just want to create and share the joy. I think my favorite is just goodie bags tied with ribbons. Reminds me of “Sound of Music” and the song about “packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things...”

Ok I am rambling, but thank you for doing this and blessings to all the swappers ;)

BlueberryLady 05/19/2020 #

What a Great Idea ! Love Blues and Purples- any shades , Twill or Gross grain type Ribbons or Satin types, and I use them when I make my Fabric Book Marks. Really any colors except Orange and Olive.. Thank you !!

zibbity 05/19/2020 #

I absolutely love bright green, dark purple, and orange! Ribbon is used in our home mostly for crafting of doll clothes, making of fun decorations etc. We have just recently gotten back into swapping as a family so I would love to find more uses for all of our notions!

zibbity 05/19/2020 #

During this new and unknown season we've had A LOT of family time! From walks to pool time, trampoline to badge work, zoom calls and virtual coffee dates... We've been keeping busy, crafting a lot, and enjoying the longer days!

ChelseaStarleen 05/19/2020 #

Thanks for offering such a fun swap! I love ribbon for junk journals, I often use them for closures and sometimes weaving through pages to decorate. I am also a big fan of sewing paper and fabric together, to make embellishments, I also like to add ribbon to bookmarks. And I am a big fan of all colors. My favorite colors are blues and greens. 😁

Poohtat 05/19/2020 #

I love pastels, pinks and purples especially. I use ribbons in my junk journals, ATCs and JAMs. Thank you for the chance.

Mandaloolee 05/19/2020 #

My favorite colors are purple (!!!), teal and indigo, but mustard yellow and marmalade orange have been catching my eye here recently! I like to use ribbon in fun knitting projects, for art/yarn bombing and for wrapping gifts.
