Default If you have no 3/8" to match

What do you ladies use to line your clips when you have no 3/8" ribbon to match? I have made a really cute bow out of printed 7/8" ribbon. Unfortunately, I have no 3/8" in a matching color to do my clip. I am sure I am not the first person to have this problem. So, what do other people do when faced with this dilemma?

would depend on the print, you can always do white or black depending on the print.

I would try and play off a color in the print. If that's desn't work then use a basic nutural color like white, black ect. I hope that this helps and good luck with it.

I've also used a subtle print or swiss dots.

I just eyeball it and cut my ribbon to the size from the 7/8" and then I run my lighter on the ends to seal it if I don't use the burner to cut it.

That's a great idea! Don't know why I didn't think of that. Thanks!

Thanks ladies! I was thinking of doing white, but I was confident about that choice. I think thats what I'll end up doing though.

I usually use a neutral if there is no match ~ white, ivory, black ~ just depends on the main colors.
