do you recycle the ribbons that your purchases come in?

If so how? I have a few of these ribbons lying around and would love to make something from them. Any ideas?

I do save them and use them as things come up. Sometimes when I make a gift basket for someone I need a something to tie at the top. I also save them for kid's projects.

I have a bunch I would like ideas for. I have used them to shorten straps, but have some really long ones there must be some use for!

It's a good idea to recycle them. I tried using the ribbons to shorten the straps on my flaps but it looked tacky --the white portion poked through the hole & it looked clumpy when I opened my flap. I have since just tossed them. But I think if you have a ribbon maker, you could use the all the ribbons to make a flower ---it'll look like the camelia flower but have Chanel written on it. Just a thought.

^pictures? Sounds really elegant. I made a rosette with some of mine and tied it to the handles of a bag. I was experimenting at the time with how to use them.
