vintage ribbon party blowers

I happened upon a length of gorgeous vintage ribbon last month and am thrilled to have found the perfect project for it. Ribbon adorned party noise blowers!

They’ve become my new favorite detail for celebrating this spring. Use the party blowers to cheer along the birthday girl, to applaud the couple just being wed, or to brighten up this year’s Easter basket. They were a cinch to make, pretty to stack and festively fun to use.

    ok – so they don’t unfurl when you blow them, though, do they? Really adorable. . . .ep

      Queenie, Thanks. No they don’t unfurl when you blow them, they just make a lovely loud noise! I used a dab of glue at the beginning and end of the ribbon roll to ensure it stays nicely in place. Have fun making them:)
