What do you do when you need to tie lots of ribbon to a project and when you’re short on ribbon? Well, I for one, don’t panic. Here’s a trick for making small pieces of ribbon go a long way:
Instead of tying all the ribbon to the project – tie one ribbon and then lay shorter strips of ribbon across the knot and knot twice again to secure. You’ll get the bunch of ribbon look you want but with less ribbon than you really have in hand.
So, now you know you can use scraps of ribbon, instead of consigning them to the rubbish bin, bag them in small zip lock bags for use on your next project.
