Default Bought the wrong size ribbon

So I wanted 7/8'' and bought 5/8'' by mistake. So I'm kinda at a loss since I've never worked with 5/8'' before. What can I make with it? O.o;; TIA!

What were you going to make with the 7/8" ribbon?

I use 5/8" for petite bows. They are great for toddlers or as side clips to hold back wisps. I also use the petite bows on ribbon wrapped snap clips--they look adorable, and are different from your average bow clip.

Sometimes I make surrounds with 5/8" too.

That's a hard one for me. I have a couple rolls I was given but I never buy it. I have made a couple small bows but that's it. Sorry there have to be some good ideas out there.

I do that quite often and the rolls usually just sit here.

I've never really messed with 5/8 inch though.

I make my small twisted bows with 5/8 inch ribbon and they are a great seller for me. I also use them to line clips with for my bottlecap clippies for a fun "chunkier" look. I also use that size ribbon for all my knotted centers on my twisted bows. That's also the size ribbon I use to wrap my 3/4 inch plastic headbands with.

If you have the ribbon puff tut, some have been using the 5/8 for a larger version (maybe for ponytails)...or depending how much you bought, this is what I would use it for (mixed with patterns, dots, etc)

and trust me, have already bought the lights to make sets for all 3 of my dd's!!!
