Chicken-Scratch-Saturday: Wire Ribbon

If you're like me and pick up your wrapping supplies for next year during the post-Christmas sales, then I have two words for you...

Wire ribbon.

Yes, wire ribbon.

I'm in love with it.

I want to marry it.

I've been using it to wrap my Christmas gifts for years.

So beautiful, and it comes in every pattern and color and width imaginable.

VERY easy to use. You don't even need to borrow anyone's finger when you're trying to tie the bow.

Just lay a length of ribbon across the front of the package, cross it in the back, come back to the front and tie a bow. Wrap the ends around your finger a few times and it makes a pretty curl.

Just a quick pull unties it and it's good as new. When I'm tidying up after all the presents have been opened, I just roll the ribbon back up and stick it in my ribbons and bows box for next year.

I'm telling you, I have some ribbons in there that I've used over and over for years, and they're just as pretty as ever, so you definitely get your money's worth out of them.

Wire ribbon.
Get some.

  1. Hola Anne!
    Never thought of using wire ribbon...sounds like an awesome idea. Seems simple enough too. Will try it next year! Just stopping by to wish you a wonderful, wacky weekend!

  2. I used some for the first time this year, and I have to agree with you. Presents wrapped with it look so pretty and professional.

  3. Hi. I found you through the Super Sunday Blog Hop. Please stop by and say hi when you get a minute. Happy New Year!

  4. That is a great tip. I never have super pretty wrapping, mostly because it seems like a waste. I may just have to try this, though, since I can use it again and again.

  5. I am with you. I love wire ribbon too!

  6. Thanks, guys, so glad you stopped by, and how wonderful that I could be of some use. Happy wrapping next year!

  7. I love wire ribbon! Thank you for sharing this at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again on Monday. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
