    :gift: Bows, ribbon, string on your gifts?

    I used to use the bows that are aleady made and have sticky stuff on them. Now I try to make my own bows and fancy ribbons.

    I don't really decorate my gifts. People just tend to tear through them and don't really take any time to see what I have done so I don't do it anymore.

    I love wrapping gifts with my imagination and also love making bows...

    I like bows on the gifts so that they'll look pretty when I take a picture of the tree. I usually use the pre-made ones, but I often use narrow ribbon and make a simple bow. That's what I use on decorative boxes that don't have to be wrapped. It holds the lid on so people don't peek.

    Thank you.

    Back in the seventies, we had a traditional style red velvet sofa(regular velvet, not crushed) with no wood showing. The drapes were solid white with white dotted red sheers. I guess I was being dramatic with my decorating. When Christmas came it looked like a winter wonderland, and the dots on the sheer curtains reminded me of falling snow. That's what made me buy the ribbon for that gift. The other side of the snowflake says "To" and "From."

    EllfGirl and Tink, you are so kind. One of my biggest complaints is thinking I'm not creative enough. I think I just get lucky once in a while.
