Are you a ribbon hoarder? My kids know that when packages get unwrapped the ribbon always gets saved. But do you have a drawer that looks like this?
That's the problem, what to do with all of those odds and ends of lovely ribbon?
(In my defense, some of my ribbon is organized.)
The answer is messy bows! I learned this technique a couple of years ago and it changed my life. (Well, at least it cleaned out my ribbony mess.) So here is how to make spectacular ribbon creations for all of your gift giving this holiday season.
Start with a couple of pieces of tissue paper (you know you hoard that as well). Cut it about 4" by 12".
Layer on lengths of random width ribbon anywhere from 4- 12 inches long. You can use both wired and unwired.
Mix and match your ribbon in like color schemes.
Next, tie the whole thing in the middle with a bow.
Now scrunch away and fluff up all of those ribbon bits!
Ta Da! Tie it on your wrapped packaged and you have an impressive presentation. I think this looks especially fun on a small package.
This is a great idea for getting kids involved in the wrapping process. So easy and fun to do!
Merry Christmas and Happy gift wrapping!
