RIBBON! How do I love thee ribbon, let me count the ways!
Oh yes I am a lover of ribbon! It adds just the right touch to cards and layouts sometimes but the problem usually is trying to find that "just right" ribbon. Living quite a distance from Hobby Lobby I don't always get to hit the ribbon when it is on sale and I refuse to pay full price. My Walmart does have a small selection of ribbon but of course there are always colors I need that they don't carry.
Sometime ago my friend Linda, aka LGuild, and I found out about a website called Ribbons and Bows Oh My! and we started ordering ribbon. I think this is our third order from them now. The prices are great and the shipping is super fast!
The ribbon in the picture cost $52, and shipping was $9.50. Shipping maybe considered high but since it was sent in a priority box I figure it wasn't too bad. Now you might think it was a lot of money for those rolls but consider this..
There are 30 yards of polka dot ribbon there and the price worked out to be about 30 cents a yard.
There are 120 yards of 3/8" grosgrain ribbon and the price works out to 17 cents a yard.
There are 160 yards of 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and the price works out to about 15 cents a yard.
Since Linda and I split most of the ribbon it works out great! This time I ordered the 5 yards of Polka Dot, the 20 yards of the grosgrain. They do have larger quantities but the 20 yard seem to work great for us. So if you guys need ribbon you might consider ordering from this website! They are definitely on my list of favorites!
Oh and if you make an account with them they are offering free shipping right now! Make sure you log in before starting your order and offer is only good until midnight Monday!!!
