Scrap Wrangler does ribbon

It’s been a really long time since anyone’s seen the Scrap Wrangler. But thanks to the generosity of my patrons – she’s back!


Translating Scrap Wrangler:

  1. Biggest toad in the pond – Scrap Wrangler’s the only Wrangler, so is clearly the biggest one.
  2. Barkin’ at a Knot  –  Bein’ upset over nothin’
  3. Greenbacks  – money
  4. That dog won’t hunt – That idea won’t fly!
  5. SER….somebody else’s ribbon.
  6. By hook or crook – one way or another
  7.  Cowpoke – a guy!
  8. Snug it up – tighten it
  9. Bang up – excellent
  10. Sticky as a beehive – sticky
  11. With a lick and a promise – shoddy work
  12. Pop yer corn – give me your opinion
  13. Shoot yer mouth off – leave a comment
  14. Varmint – another  creature
  15. Skedaddle – leave
  16. Up in a spout – in trouble
  17. Rattle up yer hocks – get going!

Want more Scrap Wrangler? Go become a patron, and leave your ideas on my patron activity wall. That’s where this idea came from! Below are stills of the cards shown…super simple ideas, hopefully ones that’ll help you use up some SER, and in nice flat ways that work great for OWH too!

  1. Great tips! Covering a die cut shape is genius.

  2. Super funny Sandy, but also very helpful. I had a person whom I shared our cardmaking for OWH with that gave me all of her ribbon scraps. Great to have some new ideas to use them!

  3. By gum–I think your acksent is improving!

  4. I’ma hootin’ and hollerin’! Jest might mosey on down my craftin’ room to make me some ribbon loops. thank ya, kindly!!

  5. Thanks again, Sandy!

  6. LOL, Sandy you crack me up! I think that beaumama is right you are a ham! But, you’ve also got some great ideas! I have to admit that I’m not as prone to saving ribbon scraps as I am paper ones. Mostly I just try to cut it to the right size to begin with! Thanks for the tips and for the belly laugh!

  7. Brilliant…you ham.

  8. Academy Award for sure — so so funny !

  9. Now that thar’ was funny!

    I have not saved scarps of ribbon the way I save paper scraps (thank goodness.) I have started buying mostly white ribbons that I can color up the perfect shade using Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers. It solved my storage issue (too many spools of every color in a small space) and keeps scraps to a minimum.

  10. this was too much fun! thanks for giving us this wonderful video, Sandy! Both inspiring AND entertaining! 😉 *my favorite phrase: “Rattle up yer hocks” —I never heard that one before 😀

  11. I love all the ideas! My ribbon stash is mostly just spools. I’ve actually stopped saving all the scraps. 🙂

  12. What a hoot, so funny!!!!

  13. You are a hoot!!! Thanks for the tips.
