Ribbons...we see them every day, whether we are wearing them in our hair, using one as a belt for our dress, or hanging a picture frame with one, we use them on a daily basis. On this page, we will give you some cool uses for ribbons within your arts and crafts projects. We hope you enjoy crafting with ribbons.
There are lots of interesting ways to frame pictures, and an older girl can make a very attractive one with ribbon and cardboard. You will need a rectangle of cardboard about 7 inches long and 5 inches wide. Cut an oval from this piece of cardboard. To do this, lay a saucer at the top edge and then at the bottom edge, and run a pencil half way around at both top and bottom. This will give you an even curve for your frame. After you have drawn the lines cut it out. Now draw another oval outline about 1 inch in from all sides. Cut along this line, making a window for your picture. Now wind ribbon around the frame. In winding, try to overlap the ribbon evenly, so the bands will be approximately the same width. After you have gone completely around the cardboard, fasten the ribbon securely at the back with strong tape. To make a back for your frame, cut another oval of cardboard just slightly smaller than the first one but do not cut any window in it. Also, cut the cardboard off about 2 inches from the top. This will allow space to slide in your picture. Run paste around the edges of this backing (except along the top) and paste it to the back of the ribbon frame you have made. See the picture above. You will be able to slide the picture in easily and change it as often as you wish. Attach a paper picture hanger to the back of your frame so that it may be hung on the wall. Here is another ribbon frame craft.
Here's the way to make a belt by tying knots in ribbon, raffia, or cord. Obtain a belt buckle and lengths of ribbon, each 10 ft. long. Double each length to make 2 strands. Fasten each doubled ribbon to the buckle cross bar with a girth hitch. Tie a knot in each pair of ribbons as near to the buckle bar as possible. Do this with each of the 4 pairs of ribbons. This will make 4 knots in a row underneath the buckle bar. Now proceed to tie knots in the strands of ribbons as shown here. Note how the rows of knots alternate between 4 and 3. Continue tying knots in this way until the belt is long enough for its wearer. Then tie the 8 strands together in one large knot to slip through the buckle. This would make an awesome fashion accessory or gift for Mom, Dad, Sister, or a Brother.
Buy enough mesh or netting to make two 4" squares. You will also need about 1 yard colored ribbon and potpourri to fill the sachet with. Now cut mesh netting to a heart or any other shape that you want. Now take ribbon and lace the netting together along 3 sides. Now you can put the potpourri into the netting bag that you created and then finish lacing to close the sachet pouch up;. Tie lacing in bow and loop over hanger.
You will need 1 plain china plate, 1 yd. of ruching or ribbon 1" wide, 1 paper plate size of china plate, 10" ribbon, needle and thread, household cement, and enamel paint. Paint crest or coat of arms on china plate and allow to dry. Gather or pleat ribbon in circle slightly smaller than circumference of plate. Glue to inside edge of paper plate. Glue china plate into paper plate with household cement. Allow to dry thoroughly. Attach ribbon on back for hanging crest.
