    I am in love with the two toned grossgrain ribbon that frays when cut…Larissa did an excellent flower tutrial I am really wanting to try now…I am new to the site, but wow, these ribbons are beautiful! hard to pick just one!

  8. Nichole Bruno

    Just posted my favorite ribbon on facebook too=) TFS!

  10. Kelly Jo

    I just love Jenifer Cowles Spring wreath. =)

  11. Sue in CT

    I would like to vote for Jenifer Cowles. Her project is totally beautiful. I wouldn’t even know where to start to do something like that.

  12. Lori Brown

    Always love Mandie’s projects – would love to see her on the DT. And those ribbons are gorgeous!

  13. Freda

    So many beautiful projects!!!

    My favourite is Jenifer’s wreath 🙂

  23. Lesa #5200 Livingston

    Jenifer Cowles wreath is my favorite! Reminds me of my mother’s hankies, so feminine and pretty. It’s versatile, too, though. Think how cute it would be in a little boy’s room in a sailing/nautical theme or for a teen girls room with groovy, day glo colors and a peace sign sewn in the middle. WTG, Jenifer!

    These are all gorgeous ribbons and roses. Wish you would sell on line. I love them all.
