What’s great about the Printable Ribbon Kit LabelWorks™ is that it is made for printing personalized messages on satin ribbons for crafts, scrapbooks, decorations, gifts and more.

Pretty Packaging Ideas

For this package, I used a pre-made bow and handle bag then added my personalized printed message under the bow. Tape it or use a glittered clothespin as I did. Add tissue paper into the handled bag around your gift.

For this mason jar gift of oatmeal cookies, I added some Christmas fabric over the lid cover and under the lid rim. Then I cut the fabric leaving a few inches under the jar rim. I glued the printed ribbon onto the lid.

We personalized this mason jar Christmas gift with cookies and with the ribbon saying, “Made Special For You” and then I added music notes for Sammie’s piano teacher.
