Elastic ruffle


Felt hen ribbon

  1. Charlene Austin

    I CANNOT wait for your January release! So excitied. Bring it on!

  2. Maria Moore

    Love the red plaid. I am going to be putting together a cookbook ablum class and think it would look great on the album.

  3. Jacquie

    I am really liking the red gingham with Valentines right around the corner I can see that on quite a few cards.

  4. Elaine

    Elastic Plaid Ribbon is my FAVE!!!! Works really nicely with all of my vintagey and Valentine’s themes…and more! 🙂

  5. Paige Hill

    Would love any of those! I’m going to make some Easter chicks, and that ribbon would be perfect:)!

  6. CandyCB

    I envision a white eyelet full front apron with the elastic/plaid as trim all around the edges and big patch pockets, using matching red/white check or stripe ribbon for the neck and waist ties or edging for a pair cute diaper covers and edging for a matching little tee.

  7. Carly

    Oh how cute! I love the ruffle one, so many things you can create with that, and the little chicks are super cute they would be perfect for all things Easter.

  8. Kerry A

    How cute! Makes me feel like I’m on the farm! 🙂 Love the red elastic gingham!

  9. Heidi Karpen

    The red gingham elastic ribbon is great! It reminds me of the curtains in my house growing up! I can see lots of spring/summer picnic/gardening cards with this ribbon!

  10. Sandra

    The chicks are super-cute! They’d fit in my shop’s range of items perfectly. I’d love to decorate an Easter basket handle with it, too! Any bunnies in the future? 😉

  11. Marge Robertson

    Ohhh, your red gingham ribbon would be so fun to play with! I can see the chicks would be great fun for Easter too!!!

  12. Jennifer Hadder

    I love the red gingham ribbon! When I saw it, I instanty knew I could use it on a scrapbook page. When I was younger, my mom made my sister and I red gingham dresses with ruffled sleeves. I have that picture here on my desk and it is over 35 years old!! As for the felt hen, wouldn’t that be cute on a scrapbook page from our trips to the farm. Or for Easter. Adorable!

  13. Jackie Coulter

    I think the plaid ruffle is perfect for cards, I’m always trying to find ribbon that adds some dimension, but not to much as the card eventually needs to fit in an envelope. Felt is also so easy to use on cards, this inspires me to start thinking about making easter cards.

  14. Sharon C

    picnics, ants and watermelon, here we come! and the hens, well, follow the leader to all that’s new born in the barn, the petting farm, the kindergarten class, Easter baskets, and oh yes, Mother’s Day!

  15. Gigi

    The new ribbon is so cute. The red one can be used for so many things. I can see a little girs headband made from it. It would also be great to use on a kitchen project. From altered art cards to a vintage apron.The chicks shout baby, spring and Easter. For decorating , scrapbooking a special memory, or a farm theme project!

  16. sandy miller

    Here chickie Here chickie!! and “it’s barb Q time” is what comes to mind first. We do altered scrapbook classes and I see endless possibilies for cookbooks and Easter Projects.Can’t wait to be one of the first to use these! Not to mention detailing a apron to go with them!!

  17. kimberlee P

    Squealing over elastic ruffled ribbon! And thinking those cute hens would be the perfect touch on vintage aprons!!


    I like the ruffled red checked ribbons, perfect for cookie jars and as for the hen felt ribbons, I can see myself using it on Easter related projects.

  19. Paper Posies Scrapbooking Kit Club

    This sneak is so fun! I can’t wait to see what else you have headed our way. I LOVE May Arts ribbon and so do my customers!

  20. Christine

    I can’t WAIT to use these ribbons in my little box creations! I can already see the gingham ruffle on a “Summer Frock Box” and the felt hens on an “Easter Surprise Box”. You can peek at my creations at the DaWanda website listed here

  21. Christine

    I can not WAIT to play with these 2 new ribbons. I make decorative boxes and I am already imaging a “summer frock box” witht he plaid and an “Easter box” with the hens. You can see some of my boxes at my DaWanda online shop.

  22. Lee

    I just love the felt hens!! I have to prepare something for an Easter photo shoot for one of our magazines here in SA, and I am definitely going to use them…maybe on some eggs….? Can’t wait to see the new range!

  23. shelly

    The ruffled ribbons reminds me of the kitchen windows growing up. How awesome to would it be to use the ribbon on recipe cards. I could also see the ribbon on cushions, not only that but ad the ribbon and the felt hens for a card or use as a boarder on a scrapbooking page for several holidays. Endless possibilitys.

  24. doris

    wow! I like them both:) this felt hens ribbon is adorable. first what came to my mind was cheerful spring celebrations such as Easter or first day of Spring, tihs ribbon will be perfect for table decor or to embelish scrapbook pages. And this sweet elastic ruffle is also great challenge, maybe some sort of Christmas decor, or to embelish ornaments? Can’t wait to see all new ribbons:)

    greetings from Poland

  25. patty cole

    i especially like the gathered ribbon.

  26. Diana N.

    I like the gingham ruffle gathered with elastic. I can just imagine using it to trim a little girl’s dress.

  27. IndyCinD

    Love the elastic ruffle! Can’t wait to play with it on sewing, crafting and altered art projects. The hens would be a bit of a challenge, but a get-well package that contains chicken soup comes to mind.

  28. f lynn rush

    i like the red-checked ruffle. without the elastic, it would work better for my cards and scrapbook layouts.

  29. Tammy

    I love the red plaid ruffled ribbon! It would make a sweet embellishment on cards, and I can see using it in my Grandma’s Cooking Scrapbook.

  30. Denise Bryant

    The plaid ruffle would be fabulous on a stamped or die-cut card as a window valance…. It would add some dimension and look great! Gotta get some of that!
    I’m anxious to see what other goodies you have coming up in the January release.

  31. Nora

    I’d like to give a decorated jar of cookie mix or hot cocoa mix with the red checkers. I can also make a new layout for my baby niece’s scrapbook with the felt hens. Thanks for the chance to win some NEW ribbon!

  32. Irene L

    I think the red elastic will be great to use on altered things and the yellow hen will be great for my scrapbook layouts
