The Ribbon Resource:: Christmas Gift Wrap Hop

The Ribbonistas from The Ribbon Resource, the May Arts Ribbon Retail Store, are hopping every Friday until Christmas to give you inspiration and chances to win some fabulous May Arts ribbon!

Today we are showcasing Christmas Gift Wrap!

I like to make homeade goodies for the holidays to give as gifts. I've learned to save plastic fruit containers throughout the year as an inexpensive alternative to the typical "Christmas Tin".
I packaged up some sliced banana bread in one of the containers (using a coffee filter as a liner) and then decorated them with different ribbon available at The Ribbon Resource and some holiday tags.
For the container above, I used 2" Olive Webbed Woven Ribbon and Kraft Baker's Twine.  

For this gift, I wrapped the container in 2" Natural Cotton/Burlap Blend Ribbon
and tied the tag with a bow made from Kraft Baker's Twine.

I thought adding two beautiful Ivory Faux Suede Leaves finished the look off nicely.

I'm the last stop on today's hop, but here's the complete line-up.
Head on over to the Ribbon Resource to enter for your chance to with two 5 yard rolls
of Christmas Ribbon-winner's choice!


  1. Awesome presentation of your baked goods. Great tip to save those plastic fruit containers.

  2. Loved the addition of the leaves on the container, it really made it special. Great tip for saving containers.

  3. I like that webbed woven ribbon.
    Very different and so pretty.
    I'll have to start keeping those plastic boxes. Hadn't thought
    of them as a source for packaging presents, etc.
    thanks for the idea.
