First Some INSPIRATION:
-Wear ribbon as a necklace. You can use a brooch to decorate or thread on rings to make a chunky choker. You can tie it on by itself or tie it to a plain necklace to make it interesting. You can sew on another piece of fabric and gem it up.
-You can wind it around a plain bangle or hoop earrings.
-You can wrap it around your arm or ankle
-Tie your plait or pony tale with it.
- Use it as a headscarf. Wrap it around several times and pin into place.
-Make your own hair clips with it
-Make shoe straps with it
-Replace shoe laces
-Revamp clothes and add in criss cross ties or straps that tie up.
-Ribbon trims added to create detail
-Sheer ribbon can be made into a veil or mask for fancy dress.
-A bow tied around a bag handle adds a girly touch
-A piece of ribbon tied around the waist
To prevent Fraying:
-Cut on an angle
-Use clear nail polish to seal
-Fold ends under and sew
Picking the right ribbon:
-This all depends on your purpose.
-A ribbon the same colour as a garment will give detail without making something look too busy.
-Bright colours will stand out and be eye catching, while lighter colours will have a girly effect and darker ones will have more of a goth effect.
-Don't wear too much ribbon at once! Limit yourself to say 3 pieces and if your outfit is still too crowded downsize. You don't want to there to be any overkill. Sometimes one big risk is enough.
-Stick to your colour scheme. Don't necessarily wear the exact same colours, but make sure they don't clash.
-Pearls look nice with ribbon no matter what the setting is.
