Default Need ideas for using 3/8" ribbon

I just ordered a bunch of 3/8" ribbon and need some ideas/instructions.

I've been wanting to make korkers and start doing some embellished clipes since I didn't offer these at my shows this year.

I wanted to also try some itty bitty bows but don't know how long to cut the ribbon.

Anything else to do with this size ribbon?

you could do twisted bows and pony streamers. The pony streamers use the 7/8 ribbon and put a contrasting color of 3/8 down the middle. I sell alot of those. Also you cando little bow ties.

You guys are great! I'd love to see pics! I'm going to try to do the itty bitty bows for sure!

I'm so intimated by the woven headbands but I need to give it a try.

Here's one of my first woven headbands. I really like the 3/4 inch size.


I couldn't follow a lot of the tutorials but found a video instructions that helped me.

There's 2 parts to this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43kLL_3t8hk

And then I use these for finishing http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/instr...n-contest.html

the woven head bands are easier than they look. there is tons of tuts for free. Oh, for the smaller bow ties bows put a crystal in the middle and it looks super cute.
