I’m quick to scavenge pretty ribbons from gift packaging so I can use it on other projects. The only problem is, the ribbon is pretty much permanently wrinkled where the bow was tied tight. Karen from Sew Many Ways has a special tool she uses to straighten it out. As with many of her sewing tools, this was not intended to be used for sewing purposes at all. Go to her post to see what she uses.
