    OMIGOSH, these ribbons are too wonderful!!! The Wide Stripe looks good enough to eat … and soft as butter. And I’m lovin’ the vintagey-versatility of the Crochet ribbon! WoWzA! These are just fantastic!

    First thought when I saw the crochet ribbon was “baby.” Coordinate a satin ribbon with the sex of the baby and it would make cute shower invites, announcements, and scrapbook pages for the mommy to be. OR do your own photo session of your baby in a diaper (black and white of course), print it with the index prints and place it under the ribbon with the baby’s pictures peaking through the holes. Then choose your favorite pose and it could be the main focus on the page. I can also see small crocheted flowers made with this ribbon. With the 2” striped ribbon, you could use it as the hangers for frames of those family member’s pictures you took over the holidays. If the ribbon was red stripped, you could get a head start on your Valentine’s projects like tying up your loved ones sweets and homemade goodies. If the ribbon was black, you could decorate for a 40th birthday. If she is sensitive about turning 40, instead of all the “Over the Hill” stuff, you could use lots and lots of bows. Still black but a little bit more fun!

    Wow! My first thought with that black and white stripe was of Audrey Hepburn’s dress at the horse races in My Fair Lady. I would do so much with it! I’d pin a vintage rhinestone broach to it and wear it as a belt or a ribbon cuff with a fabulous black dress. I’d make a flower for my sister to wear in her hair. I’d sew it onto the hand towels in my black and white bathroom, and use it to make tiebacks for my curtains in the dining room. (to name a few)
    As for the crochet ribbon, I would use it to embellish the vintage style quilt I’m making for my mother-in-law and make her some stationery to match.

    I just discovered this blog and I like all the ideas. Thanks for sharing!

    Slurp, slurp. Drool, drool! Love it all!

  5. samantha sibbet

    the stripes are beautiful, would love to use it on some cards and home decor

  6. Daiva E

    OOooooohhhh!! Absolutely LOVE the wide striped ribbon! It would be stunning on a wrapped gift with a big bow. Just use a solid colored paper and then wrap the ribbon and tie a bow with it – perfect! The crochet ribbon is so beautiful – I see it being used on all kinds of cards and heritage scrapbook pages.

  7. Lynda

    Fabulous new ribbons!!! I would love to use the crochet ribbon on cards…as the perfect finishing touch.
    That striped ribbon would truly make any package look magical!!!

  8. Michelle Bopp

    Hi! These are gorgeous! I have used similar ribbon as handles of my duct tape purses!

  9. Nora Grindheim

    I always try to incorporate ribbon in my cards and scrapbook layouts. It’s makes a better border than paper. But my favorite is the suede with the ruffled edges. The band with the satin center is really classy too.
    By the way, thanks for the links to where I can get so much May Arts ribbon. My scrapbook stores were not the best source…
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. Michele Hofland

    I love the crochet ribbon and am very excited to see what else is in the new releases. I can’t wait to use it on scrapbooking pages and cards!

  11. Debbie Kravec

    OH MY GOODNESS, I absolutely love the crochet lace. And that striped ribbon is going to be a wonderful addition to so many projects. Can’t wait to be able to order some. Thanks for always being the best.

  12. Chasley

    Love the crochet ribbon, can’t wait to see what else is new.

  13. Sharon Curtis

    Beautiful! the crochet brings images of Easter cards, layouts and bonnet trims. Vintage Christmas, family heritage pages, and the stripes, well, handles on a beach bag, ties on a big sun hat, tying up a parcel of fresh backed buns, a picnic basket and trimming a costume for jazz dance recital, or a layout with pictures of jazz, vaudville, French cafe’…….on and on with ideas! They are both beautiful!

  14. Susan Ikin

    Love the solid stripes – reminds me of elegant chocolate boxes and Oxbridge boaters punting on the river

  15. Karen

    the crochet ribbon is awesome. I love all your ribbons, they are great quality and some of them very unique. Hope I can win but regardless I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  16. Marjorie McClintock

    I make cards as well as give-away bags. The crocheted ribbon would be perfect to coordinate the ribbon with the paper on the card. I can see velvet run through it for Christmas and pink for Easter. The stripe ribbon would be perfect for tying up a nice bag. It looks very soft and pliable. Nice for tying up those “special” Christmas gifts or stamping on for embellishment on cards.

  17. Gabriele Kubo

    I love the crochet ribbon and think of weaving small grasses through it. I am permanently thinking of how to combine handcrafting, crocheting and knitting with flower design. Crochet ribbons will give me the chance to intertwine floral materials and handcrafted yarns.

  18. Beth

    Incredible new product. Uses are unending.

  19. michelle

    I am loving the stripe ribbon – would love some for a project I am brainstorming on. Happy Holidays!

  20. Kate

    I love them both but I really love the crochet and coordinating it with whatever project you’re working on. I’d love the stripes in varying smaller widths.

  21. Anne Sutton

    We love so many of your ribbons, and the crochet trim is just beautiful! I love the 2″ stripe and can’t wait to see if it comes in more colors! Thank you for supplying such wonderful products.

  22. f lynn rush

    my choice would have to be the crocheted ribbon. reminds me of my great grandmother’s crocheted doilies. i would love to use this for both card-making and sewing. quaint, homey and familiar….

  23. daisy moon

    …beautiful crochet ribbon for christening and new baby cards, with pink or blue ribbon threaded through, on the top of little baby socks or hats…and those stripes, WOW! what a dramatic statement the ribbon would make tied around a home made bouquet of fresh flowers, tied with raffia as a contrast….gorgeous stuff!!

  24. Carole Hepburn

    OOOOhhhhh the goodness of these ribbons —– crochet ribbon would be darling with color coordinated ribbons on a baby book, added to tea towels, added to the trim on a homemade baby skirt….the stripes have my mind racing with ideas – baby head bands, added to the tops of frames for the hanger, used as a stripe on a scrapbook page or card, used weaved together as the topping to a pillow, package wrapping, the big finish to an altered canvas…..sooo much to do with these fabulous ribbons – LOVE THEM !!!

  25. Paula Vascones

    The crochet ribbon is excelent !! Is a good idea for work, it seems incredible pass ribbon, in more design, stamp, grosgrain ribbon and satin ribbon!! And can create beautiful headbands for babies, by applying elastic! The crochet ribbon is a very excelent and incredible! congratulations !! 🙂

  26. Kristen Simmonds

    These are great! I see lots of possiblilites. The crochet ribbon can even have multiple different 1/8″ ribbons run thru it, and the 2″ ribbon would be great for home decor pillows, on lamp shades and even the runner behind a wall hanging of photos

  27. doris

    oh Iove striped ribbons, this one looks fantastic, my first idea is to embellish my bag with such ribbon or make home decorations:)

  28. Denise Bryant

    The crochet ribbon would be lovely on hand towels to dress them up. The ribbon could be an accent color to match the bathroom.
    The stripes I could see on a pillow top. An edge ruffle on a velvet pillow would be beautiful.

  29. Diana N.

    I love the Crochet ribbon. It is so versatile. You can coordinate the satin ribbon color in the center with the colors on the card or project!

  30. Heidi Van Laar

    These are gorgeous! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of that wide stripe!
