Wow!  Sold the pink and blue ribbon already - it's going off to Washington state.  Gotta make some more, I guess.

Making Silk Gift Wrap Ribbon

I saw an idea on a blog that I decided to try.  I ordered some 1/2" silk ribbon and am dying pieces to use for gift wrap.  This is a money-saving idea because you can use either white or brown craft paper as the gift wrap, and the beautiful silk ribbon for decoration.  You can use your favorite colors, or use the recipient's favorite colors.  For example, today I am making ribbon in the colors of ASU, maroon and gold.  My friend is a huge ASU fan and will use it to wrap all her Christmas gifts.  Here are some examples of the ribbon once it's dyed.
