Default Ribbon Pieces

I went to a show the other day (shopping not selling lol) and I saw a few ladies there selling pieces of ribbon. Like, probably 18 - 20 inches of ribbon just by itself to tie onto hair or shirts or whatever.

Does anyone else do this? I thought it might be a good filler and something quick and easy to do!


Thoughts? Opinions?

Me either. I only saw like 2 or 3 people at this one that had it. (Its a HUGEEEEEE show)

I have mixed feelings about it. I mean, I like the idea, but at the same time I feel like its kind of stupid. IDK.

I sell 22"- 36" lengths of ribbon to the 11yr old and older crowd. Most of the girls in my area think they are too old for bows but want something cool. I just heat sealed the ends.

My 13 y.o is always asking me for ribbon strips. They use them just to tie in their hair or ponytails and not have to worry about the clips and it being all "neat". Both her and her friends at school wear this often! Have you ever seen how many times a teen girl "fixes" her ponytail in a single day? Up, down, up, down. When I asked her why she likes them she just said it's faster but still really cute!

I sell these at shows all the time! I heat seal the ends in a V-cut and get the cheerleaders to buy them to tie onto their bags (their team colors or a football print). Every waitress in this area ties them on their ponytails as well.

Sooo easy to do and all of the ribbons look really pretty hanging from D-rings on a string.

I sell them for $1 for solids, $1.50-2.00 for prints. It's a great way to get that last dollar from someone's pocket.

That is what I sell them for. They also like to use the smaller strips (2/pr) to tie around the shoulder and arm hole of t-shirts. Cheerleaders do this and now all the girls like to do this.

I've never sold them but I do have a few girls on the softball team that asked me for them. I just gave them to the girls, but I did heat seal the ribbon first.
