Ughhhh....I feel for you, I did the exact same thing a while back....and I still have it all just sitting in the box. Sorry, that was not much help, I just wanted to say that I sympathize with you and I am enjoying all of the ideas Good luck.

I use it for small TBB's and wrap arounds in larger stacked bows. 5/8" does fine for wrap arounds, especially if it's a nice ribbon (will stand out more). I also throw pretty much anything I have into ribbon sprays, and a 5/8" works fine there also. I also use it in pony-o's.

I mix it in with 3/8 and 7/8 in pony o streamers.

You use it up quickly in streamers.

You can also make loopy flowers out of it. I have made some minnie bows (same fold as cheer bow) to put on clippies out of em too.

Everyone who has a problem with their 5/8" ribbon can pack it up and send it to me. I'll use it Funky bows, Loopy puffs, small classics, etc...

ita! i've been thinking what can't you do w/5/8" ribbon!

just went thru 20 search pages looking for a pic where someone used 5/8" ribbon to line both alli & snap clips & clustered a small group of hydrangea petals w/pearl centers . . . crap, i couldn't find it! the 5/8" ribbon looks great as the lining ribbon.

5/8" is also great for the middle knots.

i also asked a group buy why they didn't offer 5/8" ribbon (specialty printed) . . . said there wasn't any interest
