    I love using ribbon on my card. Just a quick knot adds the right touch. I am also going to use brown paper and festive ribbon for packaging adult gifts this year!

    This year, I am making cards for all my female family members. They will have different sentiments for all different occasions. The cards will of course have ribbon on them because I love ribbon! But how I am going to package them will be in a little cardstock made purse with ribbon handles. I can’t wait to give them! So cute!!

    Ribbon is fun because it’s easily made into different embellishments for cards or layouts. Stitch up one side and tug into a yo-yo flower, sew up the middle tug and you get a ruffle, lay out on project and make loops as you go – so many ways to use ribbon!
    Thaanks for the chance to win!

    I love the way that some pretty ribbon dresses up a beautiful package. I also love to tie ribbon around parts of my cards. There’s no prettier way to add texture than with a little ribbon!

    Thanks for hosting the contest!

    I love to use a piece of ribbon to tie a gift bag closed. Really dresses it up in a quick and easy way. I make several kinds of Christmas cookies to share with some of my co-workers and neighbors. I buy some cute Christmasy, printed cellophane bags and coordinate some ribbon to finish it off, along with a tag. Looks very festive!

    I love to use ribbons to make cards or wrap gifts, sometimes I try to make bow but it never look perfect, I tried different methods but every type of ribbon is different so everytime I must to figure out how to make bow, but I also wrap gift with robbin or cords without bow, just wrap it few times around box. I love to add ribbons to cards, in different ways.

    Ribbon is such a fun way to dress up a present or even a gift bag and add lots of ribbon on the handles.. since I make my own cards, I love how ribbon really adds some fun and texture on them, esp the rich, warm fun colors of the holidays

  9. Lynda aka arlsmom

    I love to add ribbon as a finishing touch to cards and packages. I find that if I spend time while watching tv tying my little bows I can easily add them to my cards with a dot of adhesive. You can often find me sitting there with a whole spool and a baggie full of little bows all ready for my cards. This year our holiday cards feature a Christmas tree that is topped with a bow…so I’ve been tying a few already! Thank you for the chance to win some beautifful May Arts ribbons!
