Our patriotic ribbon keychain is for St David's Day but obviously can be adapted for any patriotic holiday by changing the colours! Use it to decorate a backpack or pencil case, or even to hold some keys!
Ribbons are a great crafting material for children because they come in such a lovely array of sizes, colours and finishes. They can be pricey though, and it is definitely expensive to build up a wide variety. When you do build up a collection, they are perfect for adding the finishing touch to a beginner sewing project or collage, and of course we've got lots of ideas here for ribbon crafts too.
Cheer up your reading book with all the colours of the rainbow. Who could resist a bookmark made from so many pretty ribbons? Our rainbow bookmark craft would make a good gift for the kids to make for mums and grannies, too.
This pretty ribbon bracelet is a perfect little gift for girls to make for their friends, or perhaps for Mother's Day or as a teacher's gift.
You will need:
This ribbon die-cut card is a good "assembly line" card when lots are needed quickly! You can of course cut your own shapes out of pretty Christmas paper very quickly, instead of using die-cuts.
This Ribbon Egg is a simple Easter craft, but even the youngest children can manage a very pretty egg to display! The "gluing" part of the craft makes it especially fun!
Simple sewing skills and a few moments are required to turn out this pretty fish brooch. We've used a bright orange ribbon to make a goldfish for Chinese New Year, but of course you could use any colour.
This makes a cute gift for kids to make for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day - or just for themselves! It looks pretty hanging on a pencil case or satchel.
