The most popular uses for grosgrain ribbon are: Scrapbooking, floral arranging, jewelry, hair bows, clothing embellishments, gift wrapping, wedding invitations, card-making, many types of crafts and sewing.

I love grosgrain ribbon. It holds it's shape and is a strong, sturdy ribbon. You can glue it, applique it, ruffle it. Almost anything you do with it comes out looking beautiful.

      randomcreative, I have managed to find a few more resources but haven't had time to add to this hub. Etsy is always a go-to spot for anything crafty. It's a wonderful website.
