I was cutting strips for a quilt . The fabric store usually gives you 1/2 inch extra, or a little more if you are lucky. My daughter is always collecting up my scraps and playing with them. She also has a habit of wanting to take all my ribbon for her hair. This time I took about six of those skinny strips, and used them for Ribbon in her hair. It was SO cute (Rainbow Batiks). Much better than Ribbon and they can be used over and over.
That is a great idea.
What a great idea and I bet she loved it. You need to share a picture. I bet it's adorable.
You could even braid three together to get a stronger ribbon. Good idea.
That is a good idea.
Great Idea Lori.
I use mine in the garden. I tie up the tomato plants with them and tie them on the fencing to warn the birds away.

mine go into a scrap baggie at my cutting table for the ladies to use to fill pillows for surgical patients at the hospital. I get them to the gals about 3 times a year. all the ideas are great ribbon and tie ups. love it
If the scrap is as wide as an inch, my daughter uses them to make rag rugs, using the "toothbrush" method.
