  1. I have a ribbon addiction, too! I love using nice ribbon on gifts. Even if I use plain, simple paper, it looks special if the package is adorned with satin ribbon or a printed ribbon.

    1. We have played with ribbon in our class too. The kids are
      fascinated by the colors and
      textures.
