I’m pretty sure nothing gets wasted in my craft room.
Even the teeniest bits of off-cuts from scrapbook paper go into a snap lock bag for making handmade cards.
Fabric scraps have their own storage bag for future projects too.
And then there is my collection of hand ripped fabric ribbon…
This is perhaps one of the quickest projects you’ll ever whip up.
Can you say – snip, rip and store. That’s it! About 10 seconds in total.
[pin for later]
Beautiful, shabby, hand ripped pieces of ribbon to use on gift wrapping, packaging, floral bouquets and many mores fabulous crafting uses.
The options are as endless as the variety of fabrics you can use.
What’s more, you can rip your fabric ribbons in whatever width you need. Mine that are shown here are 1” wide, but I’ve made 2” wide ribbon that looks just as gorgeous.
If you want really long pieces of ribbon you can simply sew the ends together.
I tend to rip mine in 1 metre lengths and find that this is perfect for wrapping gifts.
To make your ribbon, snip the edge of your fabric with scissors and then rip the fabric. This will give you that lovely shabby frayed edge that adds to the handmade look of the ribbon.
I’ve wound my fabric ribbon onto spools, but you could wrap it around tags, card or ribbon boards.
Sometimes I even stamp my hand ripped ribbon… like I did in this post at Christmas.
What would use the hand ripped fabric ribbon for?
