Default Ugh- Cut wrong length ribbon

I just cut about 25 strands of 7/8 ribbon at 17inches! And it was supposed to be 20 inches! GRRRRRR. I looked at the wrong measurement when I got the measurement. I could still use it if it was 17.5 inches but I can't do what I was wanting at 17....anyone have any advice on what I can do with this ribbon besides streamers os 3 inch pinwheels!

Use it for Loopy (or Mum) Flowers. Either cut in 1/2 again or just use each piece for 2 'petals' IYKWIM.

Sux when that happens doesn't it

HTH

Yes, I am so made at myself! I don't know what I was thinking because I just did 25 of these last week and you would think the measurement would have been in my head. Oh well.

Could you just cut them smaller and use them for spikes?

I am so glad I am not the only one that has done something like this. I just put all the pieces I cut the wrong length in a bag and use it for spikes.

i normally can reuse all my ribbon, but I have a craft show tomorrow so I was hoping to find something to do with them now lol. Instead I just put them in my scrap pile for use later.
