Thought of one more!
Make wider ripped strips, then sew down the centers of them with tiny elastic,
pull the elastic as you are sewing, so it gathers the material.
Make several different colors.
Now you have several ruffles, to either use as headbands or add the ruffles on crochet headbands, both 1.5" and 3".
You could also add some flowers or something on top of the ruffles.
This would be super cute!
You could use ripped stripes or make a casing, that is sewn, to make the ruffles.
Shoot, you could do the same thing, make them extra long and use them for a neclace...OR tiny and use them for a braclet!
