Get presents all tied up -- with ribbon. Our two ideas work for gift cards, tickets, cash, and more.
Grace oversize gift tags with ribbon pockets or turn wide ribbons into pouches. Either can be attached to a package or presented on its own.
- Precut tags with grommets
- Wide fabric ribbon
- Sewing kit
For Pockets: Purchase precut tags with grommets from a stationery store.
Cut a 3 1/2-inch length of wide fabric ribbon. Fold each cut end under by 1/4 inch; glue.
Sew bottom and side edges to tag to form pocket. Tuck gift inside.
For Pouches: Fold a 14-inch-long piece of 3-inch-wide fabric ribbon in half, wrong sides facing. Iron along fold, and pin.
Sew up long sides. Trim edges of open end with scalloping scissors. Slip gift inside. Knot a bit of ribbon or twine to secure.
