A few years ago at a Stampin' Up Convention, we learned how to make flowers out of ribbon. You basically take a big needle (the kind used for cross stitching) and sew a running stitch at the top of the ribbon. Then at the end, pull the thread so the ribbon ends up scrunching together. Stitch a securing stitch at the bottom to close off the flower and you've got a simple, cute adornment to put on boxes, cards, etc. I love, love, love the 1.25" striped ribbon.
