    I am a papercrafter and love to use ribbons in cardmaking. Maybe a paperarts category for a contest?
    I’m new here and I love seeing the ribbon weaving and ribbon wreath ideas….. can’t wait to try out a few projects with your lovely ribbons!

    Hi just love your ribbon and the site is very helpful. Contest? 1. How about a theme like Halloween,Thanksgiving,Christmas, etc. and you would have to make an item using ribbon for that holiday. 2.How about a contest to highlight specific kinds of ribbon Velveteen,Two Tone,Stitched Edge etc.where you would have to use it on a project. 3. Maybe a contest to use a given number of different kinds of ribbon on a project. 4. How about a designated craft like create an ornament, a mini scrapbook,or home decor item. 5. Okay one more . what about a specific size of ribbon on s project. Thanks for letting me rattle on.This gave me ideas. I’m on my way tomorrow to pick up ribbon at Archiver’s . Thanks.

    I always love a contest that challenges me to create a new project. And what about a contest where people recommend new ribbon colors? Or tell you their favorite May Arts ribbon?

    I would love to see a technique challenge that goes with an article. Maybe showing how to make some ribbon flowers and then having a challenge to use them on something like a card or layout.
