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.

1113chrissybioshotHi crafters!  My name is Christina but I go by Chrissy.  I currently live overseas on the beautiful island of Okinawa.  I am married to a wonderful man and have four children and two dogs.  I love crafting and consider “off the page” pieces and mini albums my strong suit.

Today, I am sharing two Christmas ornaments I made using an item most of us have loads of, I’m sure.  Washi tape!  That’s right!  A couple rolls of your favorite tapes and some glass, or plastic ornaments and you have a quick and easy project the whole family can do.

These ornaments are super easy to make.  Simply tear small pieces of tape and stick them to your ornament.  Once the ornament is covered, apply a coat of Mod Podge and sprinkle  with a clear glitter.  I used some May Arts ribbon to finish it off.
