I got the amazing opportunity to create some super cute, fun, and easy projects using the NEW Gwen Studios ribbons and products. These ribbons have some much texture, cute colors, and amazing designs plus they are exclusive to Walmart!!

Check out all 5 craft ideas to learn how to make each with simple step by step instructions in the video below!

1) Ribbon Tassels

These ribbon tassels are so fun and easy to make with ribbon, clips, and some wooden beads. There are a ton of uses for these cute tassels including planner decor.

Another fun use is for backpack decor.

2) Ribbon Decorated Upcucled Jars

I used Yoplait Oui jars, but really and glass jar will work for this super cute decor craft.

You can store all kinds of fun items in your craft room in these sweet jars such as stencil brushes.

Or in your bathroom with cotton swabs.

3) Jumbo Ribbon Clips

These cute clips are perfect for and fast and easy bookmark with a little something extra. Pick out your favorite ribbon and you can makes these in just a few minutes, so easy kids will love to make them too!

I love to use these clips in my planner, so easy to flip to the correct month and it does not fall out!!

4) Boho Ribbon Decor

Ribbon is so versitle that you can totally use it for decorating. Get a pretty stick and your fav ribbons to make these super easy boho decor!

I choose shades of blue as that is my favorite color!

5) Personalized Vinyl Bookmarks

Picking out your favorite color of paper, ribbon, and having your initials on the bookmark might be all you need to help you snuggle up with a good book, especially with kids who are reluctant to read.

So many amazing color options with paper and ribbons to make these cute bookmarks!

just found you from the card maker summit. really enjoyed your fun fold card video! i also appreciated you offered an alternative for those of us w/o a current svg-compatable machine. i have the very first cricut machine, but it doesn't connect to anything but those little cartridges! i also liked how you presented y0ur fun fold tutorial. i am working on developing material so i can become a creative tutor, and i will adapt some of your delivery in areas i am stumbling. you made everything look so simple (and i know it is), but when i try to explain it, the process becomes much more complicated than it needs to be.
