New Floral Ribbons and Pretty Packaging

The holidays are upon us and I am amazed at the popularity of vintage packaging and ribbons in the market lately. I love all the use of vintage sheet music as wrapping paper or tags, and vintage fabrics for ribbon, bakers twine for tag ties, and using old materials in new ways.
Petite Print Ribbon for pretty packages
I am adding some new vintage items to my etsy shop, Tripletrouble,  this weekend which will help you in wrapping up all those lovely gifts. I found some wonderful large sheets of music, petite floral printed fabrics, and cotton string guaranteed to make you smile!
This package contains 3 pieces of ribbon each 3 yards long and approx 2 3/4" wide with a frayed edge and crinkly texture. The ribbon is sheer and has beautiful flow for bow making.
This cotton string is perfect for tag ties or for wrapping gifts and supplies. I love using it on all my packages. It ties nice and tight and the bow wont undo itself.
Another new item in my etsy shop! I hand punched these flowers from vintage sheet music. The paper is heavy enough to use for gift tags. Just punch holes and string them or add double stick tape to the back. You could make posies with these pretty paper punches!

Thanks Suz! I think of you often and have much hope for Jud. Stay well. Stress plays bad tricks on the body. Some fun vintage glass glitter may help take your mind off all that yucky stuff!
