In Memoriam - Tiffany Leavy

Tiffany Leavy
July 5, 1994 – October 30, 2009

Tassel Depot / Hofmann & Leavy mourns the passing of The Expert, Tiffany Leavy. She passed away peacefully this morning at the age of 108, 15 human years. She will be remembered for her invaluable contributions to Tassel Depot in her position of "The Pawfessional". She promptly handled all the “Ask the Expert” inquiries and her picture will remain on our site in her memory. She was extremely intelligent, alert and always had a smile. Her loyalty to the company and all of her colleagues, both two legged and four legged was unparalleled and she will surely be missed. Condolences go out Jack & Lynne Leavy and entire Tassel Depot family. In lieu of flowers or donations, please leave a comment below to pay your respects to Tiffany.

Some Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing!

In honor of Tassel Depot's newest addition to their large collection of products, I thought it would be fun to search the web for crafting ideas and uses for RIBBON!!! Here is the best (a.k.a. most fun sounding) ideas I found (I hope they inspire):

Club Scrap Addicts

offers 101 ribbon ideas including things like:

22. Create a collage between two microscope slides or pieces of transparency, then tie ribbon around the glass sandwich. 

98. Use watermark ink to customise your ribbon with a design or phrase.

Country Living

suggests some craft ideas like:

Ribbon Lampshade

Add a fun stripe pattern to a lampshade with different shades of ribbon. Cut 3/4"-wide grosgrain ribbon in lengths equal to height of shade plus 1/2". Hot glue to shade, overlapping pieces and allowing 1/2" to hang below the bottom edge. Turn under loose pieces; hot glue to underside. Cut a piece of grosgrain the length of the perimeter of the top of the shade. Fold lengthwise; press. Hot glue to top of shade, positioning fold on wire frame.

Ribbon Tablecloth

Weave ribbons in your favorite colors over a solid fabric background to create an unexpected and inspiring tablecloth.

Better Homes and Gardens

has great holiday ideas such as:

Menorah Pillow

It's easy to make this special holiday pillow when you start with a purchased pillow. All you do is add ribbon with fabric glue.  

Be sure to head on over to and check out all of the wonderful products that are sure to get your creative juices flowing!
