Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Got a pic of the yellow?  Is the long edge finished, or unfinished?  If it is finished, like a long (loooooooooooooooooong) piece of thick ribbon, then I would probably be tempted to use it to trim or finish some things - edging towels, curtains, trimming lampshades, etc. 

One thing I have been thinking about trying with wide ribbon myself, is making some fabric dream stars, stuffing and sewing them tight to make a mobile, or scented sachets - perhaps you could try that with this?

I'd be tempted to save this for a day when I'm not feeling creative and have infinite patience: cut into yardage lengths and edge sew strip to strip to make a single piece of cloth which can be cut into whatever you choose.

How about a bunch of huge "Support our troops" bows?

Cut it into shapes for appliques?

Crazy quilt pieces?   Make puffy letters out of it, stuff them and spell things?
