Using ribbon - part 6

The Loopy Thing: not sure what you really call this but you fold your ribbon in two, then insert the loopy end through a hole, threading it back and poking the cut ends through the loop to secure it. You get two different looks, depending on which way you poke the loop through the hole, so experiment until you're happy with the results.

For this box, I did The Loopy Thing and left the ends quite long so that I could tie a knot in them. It adds interest and make the ribbon just that little bit more secure.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
