Project Idea Submission

Thank you for your interest in being a Contributor to The Ribbon Retreat Blog!

Please submit your project idea below and please complete the other required fields for this form. Once we receive your submission, give us about a week (probably less!) to get back to you.

You will have until the deadline, you’ve given us, to send the html code or document of your tutorial to us. You will be able to post this tutorial on your own blog one week after it has been published on The Ribbon Retreat with a link to the original post and to The Ribbon Retreat. Please leave any questions in the comment section of the form.

We love all things crafty and creative, but the projects we are looking for for our blog are sewing tutorials, bow how-to’s, ribbon sculpture tutorials, anything with our new products, home crafts, kid crafts, and so much more! We are excited for your submissions and look forward to working with you!

    Hi there! I was invited to share a tutorial with the Ribbon Retreat, however, every time I enter all of the fields, it says my email is incorrect. I signed up through your website under and confirmed the “confirmation email” that was sent to me from the ribbon retreat.

    I’d love to work with you, but I’m not sure why it keeps stating my information is incorrect.

    I had the same problem as Jennifer. Did my submission work? I’m not sure…

      Hi Natalie! Yes! It did work. I see that we have received your submission and will review it shortly. Thank you to both of you! I will be adding that when you submit a tutorial, you will receive a receipt of it. That should help right? Thank you!

    I tried to submit a tutorial idea, and it said that it was incorrect also. I am not sure if you got it? I would love to share a tutorial, maybe I could email the idea to you with a picture instead? Let me know. Thanks,

    I am having trouble submitting an idea. I have redone it two times already. Every time it says “β€’An error occured while uploading: fileupload”

    Is there any other way to submit my idea?

    πŸ™‚ Thanks

    I have tried to upload photos of what I create with your ribbon and submit a project but I get an error message. Darn, it was a great submission message, too! I will try to recreate as much of it as I can here.

    I create bridal bouquets from double face satin ribbon (purchased from RibbonRetreatWholesale!) I taught myself how to make rolled/folded ribbon roses by watching a YouTube video. I got remarried August 31, 2012 and wanted a brooch bouquet, but also wanted roses. The rest is history that I will provide if you are interested in featuring me.

    In addition to my personal website, I have a shop on Etsy:

    Thanks for considering me!

    I’ve tried twice to submit a project. I’m not sure if it went through. There is a required field to “Type the numbers” but no numbers appear on the page for me to enter. I went ahead and submitted but didn’t an error message.
