Craft Ideas Using Ribbon

I am the program manager at an after-school program for girls ages 6-14, and we just received a big donation of assorted ribbon (different colors, widths, some are wired, etc.). I am looking for creative craft projects using ribbon. Any ideas? Thanks!

A friend makes beautiful flower pins from wired (silk) ribbon. She forms a flower, hand-sews them into petals, and covers the raw edges with felt, then attaches a pin. For other ribbon, try weaving them into a square, line with fabric, and make into a pillow case. Grosgrain ribbons make cute hair bows, sewn or glued onto hair combs. Have fun!

I've seen wreaths made from ribbons. Buy an embroidery hoop or macrame ring and tie the ribbons around it. Trim the ribbons so they are the same length. Have one longer length of ribbon tied on, to use as a hanger.

A tree. Using a cone (Styrofoam or plastic or even recycled) just cut strips of varying sizes. Work from bottom to top.
