Saving a Ribbon

Martha Stewart Living Television

Fabric ribbons add charm to the packages they adorn, and they're often too special or beautiful to discard. To some, ribbons signify fond memories, and reusing them passes warm sentiments from one gift-giver to another. Toby Hanson, of Bell'occhio in San Francisco, demonstrates how to attractively fold a ribbon into a soft "finger-eight". Hold one end of the ribbon against your palm with your thumb. Extend your index finger, and wind the other end alternately over and under your little finger in a figure-eight motion until the ribbon is neatly wrapped into a diamond-shaped fold.
