About May Arts
May Arts Ribbon was founded in the early 1980’s in Riverside, Connecticut. The original products were high-end silk flowers imported from Taiwan, which were decorated using quality ribbons. The decorative ribbons proved so popular among customers that the business gradually evolved into a dedicated ribbon wholesaler.
As a family-owned and operated business, May Arts began a long-standing tradition of quality, affordability and exceptional customer service. We are dedicated to carrying on this same tradition by offering high quality products at competitive prices. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer your questions or to assist you in placing your order.
May Arts carries a wide selection of quality ribbons to choose from; such as grosgrain, silk, satin, burlap and a variety of prints and patterns. All inventory is held in stock, so we can ship orders out right away—typically the same day.
Where to Buy May Arts Ribbons
The May Arts website is their wholesale site for online and brink and mortar retailers. We’ve linked to it so that you can easily view their entire product line in one place. There are numerous places where you can purchase May Arts Ribbons including many local scrapbook stores as well as online stores. Two of the online stores that carry the biggest selections that we are aware of include Amazon, who carry the complete May Arts Ribbon Line (plus you can qualify for free shipping). Click on the link we provided and it will take you to our May Arts Ribbon Search Results. To find a particular ribbon, go to the May Arts website, find the name of the ribbon and color and then enter that into your Amazon search results. Please note that through Amazon you’re buying by the roll. Most other online and local scrapbook stores sell May Arts Ribbon by the yard. One of the online stores that carries a great selection is Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
Today we a special project for you created by May Arts Guest Designer Gini Williams Cagle. You can see Gini’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about Gini:
I’m going to show you how to create a nostalgic tag, covered with May Arts lace. This technique could be used on cards and die cuts as well.
Lay strips of May Arts lace across the tag, press down and trim.
Dust over the tag with Perfect Pearls. This will color the black tag, as well as keeping the adhesive from being sticky in the exposed areas.
Cut a strip of patterned paper and adhere to the lower third of the tag. Cut away the wired edges of the Faux Burlap and glue to the center of the patterned paper. Make paper flowers/leaves and arrange as shown.
Take a longer strip of the Faux Burlap ribbon, cut both wires away, fray the edges, and tie a bow at the top of the tag.
Save the wires, and tie a small bow to go beneath the paper flowers. Thanks for letting me share my love for May Arts Ribbons with you!
