Make Your Own Ribbon
Making your own ribbon out of left over fabric scraps is a great (and cheap) way to jazz up your gift wrapping.
What You Will Need
For this tutorial, you will need a ruler, self healing cutting mat and a rotary cutter. If you don’t have these items, just use scissors and pins.
Gather up all pf your favorite fabric scraps, the more the merrier and the crazier the better.
I have used the width of my ruler as my guideline. Place fabric on cutting mat, secure ruler on top. Press down and cut a length with the rotary cutter.
Continue cutting as many strips of fabric as you like. I ended up with about 3 meters when I was done.
Hold fabric ends together with right sides facing inwards. Sew a 1cm seam. Do this for all of your strips.
Now you have created a great length of ribbon. Trim the loose threads and press.
I have chosen to trim the seams and sides with pinking sears, you can do this too if you like.
Give your ribbon one final press. You are finished! Now get gift wrapping.
