On monday I showed the wall board that had ribbon on it wrapped like a present. After I had written that post I realized I still have that ribbon and instantly wanted to use it somewhere. Then I also remembered that I have red pillow covers for the sofa pillows. And this is what I did.
I used a safety pin on the back of the bow to keep it formed like that. The next pillow didn't need any safety pins.
What this means is that I cannot lean on my pillows or the bows will go all flat, but look how pretty they are! I love them, so Christmassy and there is also the pillow with those letters that can be leaned on. And besides I hardly ever lay down on the sofa.
Also scb mentioned on the comment for monday that she's used ribbon on a door to make the door look like a present. I LOVE that idea. I would really like to use that somewhere someday. It could be amazing for a house warming party or if you give a house as a present to someone (yeah right, like that's ever going to happen).
I'll show you the tree on friday, I'm sure the glue has dried by then.
