In my new video, I focused on the wrapping material - it's all about paper ribbon!

There are three DIY craft ideas using the paper ribbons in the video, they are fun, colorful and relatively easy to make!

I used the eco-friendly paper ribbons from Wrappily.com, which is recyclable, compostable and made with non-toxic water soluble dyes. If you ever used paper ribbon, you may already know that it has a crinkle texture that can be stretched to shape a bow. It's a perfect ribbon for both beginners as well as craft masters!

You can use these colorful paper ribbons for many scenes in your life: wrapping gifts for many occasions, making napkin rings & other table décors, creating favors for your parties, etc. Enjoy the video, and I would love you to try this great material for your next gift wrapping!
