Metallic Stretchy Ribbon
Finally, I can make a pretty bow!
This is the easiest 'ribbon' for making bows. I have recycled the bows and they still look great. They are especially useful for packages which have to be mailed as they just spring back into shape.

This makes it professional!!
I am not a bow person. For years, I have been guilty of buying the pre-made bows with the stickems on the back. I even used them smashed :( BUT!!! This has helped to redeem me!! I participated in only ONE Christmas gift wrapping session, and this ended up being the only bow I could make. And I've been hooked every since. Its perfect. It can be pricier than regular ribbon, but if you stretch it a little- it goes further. I am complimented on my bows everytime. I make bows for my daughter's gifts, and then we keep them and store them with Christmas decorations and I'm able to reuse the SAME BOW the next year! I made a bow for my daughter's hair for a Christmas recital, I've made a smaller bow for my Christmas sweater. I've used it to decorate jars with homemade candies given as gifts- AND this year I had some leftover, and we used for my daughter's EASTER BASKET!! We snipped little coils to help cushion the bottem of her basket. It added flair, and protection. I don't think this ribbon was made for all the purposes I've used it, but again its PERFECT!!

Best Ribbon I've ever used
I bought this ribbon to use on a couple of presents for Christmas time. After seeing how beautiful it looked i just had to run back out to the store to buy more and put it on all of the Christmas presents. My family and friends just loved the way their presents looked with the bows that they were afraid to open it because they did not want to ruin it. Can't wait for next Christmas to wrap more presents with this ribbon.

This is so much fun!!! I had never seen anything like it before, and saw a demonstration at our new Container Store. Being a wrapping supply-aholic, I just had to have some. I really impressed my coworkers and family, the recipients of gifts decorated with the stretchy ribbon.
