Using ribbon - part 5: Tying around handles

It sounds really obvious but you can really liven up a basket, box or any container handle with ribbon. This is one of those cases when more is more and it looks really effective with loads and loads of ribbon in co-ordinating shades and patterns. I've just used three pieces around this handle as it's quite a small box. Sorry it isn't a new creation - I haven't had time to make anything new lately.

You do need more than you'd think, so practise with a few before cutting lengths... and make sure you've mastered The Knot first!

This use of ribbon also looks fantastic on books and journals - you can tie ribbon around book rings or spiral binding.

You can see more ribbon around handles here and here (although you can't see the ribbons too well on the second one).
