Ribbon Loop How-To

Martha Stewart Weddings

This beribboned cornflower bag was foil-stamped by ForYourParty.com using lettering by Nancy Sharon Collins, Stationer, holds a favor for wedding guests.

Step 1: For this gift bag, we used a 5-by-9-1/2-inch paper bag and a 19-1/2-inch lenth of 1-inch-wide ribbon. A slightly stiff ribbon works better than a floppy satin. Punch two holes in the bag's center, one above the other, about 1/2 inch apart. Fold ribbon lengthwise; notch ends.

Step 2: Pull the folded end through the bottom hole, from the front to the back of the bag, then pull it forward through the top hole, creating a loop from the top third of the ribbon.

Step 3: Tie the ends in a square knot.
