I have a bag full of ribbons that I purchased from joanns.  They are various lengths and sizes.  I was just wanted your feedback on creative ways to use them.  I don't have girls so wouldn't need to make hair bows. Help!

Make some of those cute Tuxedo Jeans, I saw them on a comercail recently. (maybe Sarah Jessica Parker for Gap??)  The jeans had a stripe of ribbon sewwed up the side seam of the pants. Looks reall cute & dressed them up a bit.   =)
I like the look of ribbons sewn horizially just above the hem of an A- line skirt, or on the bottom of the hem of 3/4 lenght sleeves. 
& there is always ribbon belts (good with 1 1/2 inch  or 1 oinch wide ribbon) with D rings. Or braelets & chokers the same way with 1inch or thiner ribbon.

I used to LOVE getting bags of those from Jo-Ann's. But mine doesn't carry them anymore.  Sad

I made curtains out of ribbons once, and it looked great. Simply hang them, and hold them down with heavier knick knacks - I used cheap metallic bangles so it tinkled in the wind...

I'm absolutely obsessed wiht the idea of getting a cute pair of jeans and sewing ribbons in different directions all over the jeans.  Some going horizontally, others diagonally, some straight up and down. 

However, my ideas never really turn out so great.  So for a simpler idea, ribbon belts are simple and cute.

Good luck!

hehe you could always give this dress a try: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15736.0

I lace my shoes with ribbon, bright colors look really cool.  You can wrap tape around the ends to keep it from fraying Smiley

If you have a sweater that's plain looking, and your ribbon is long enough to either do the two front panels, or the collar, or the buttons, or the bottom part of the sweater.  Of course, there's always the shirt of any kind will work.  I remember seeing someone selling to celeb on the embellished wife-beater shirt.  You can definitely do that.

If you are a stamper, you can def. use it to embellish cards.  Or for scrapbooking.

Meantime, you can use it to decorate small box for gifting purposes.

-use them to cover up exposing cords in your house
-create little trinkets (xmas ornaments) and then use the ribbon to hang them
-you could sew a few together add a few snaps or buttons to create cuff(wristbands..not sure what they are called)
- use them to add alittle extra cuteness to unsual things around the house like an umbrella or a towel
- Create ribbon roses? Im sure theres a sign on how to make those somwhere on google
