Weekly Wrap #73 : Wrinkle-Free Ribbon

Weekly Wrap

Flat Iron Ribbon Smoother

I had a total “a-ha” moment when I spotted this idea from Real Simple and just had to share it here. If you’re like me and don’t like throwing ribbon away (years of pretty ribbons from holiday and birthday gifts over here), then you might have, say, a box full of gorgeous but wrinkly ribbon stashed away somewhere. I’ve thought about having an “iron my ribbon” afternoon, where I break out the iron and ironing board, but using a flat iron as a ribbon smoother would be so much easier.

Have a great weekend, everyone – a nice, long one if you’re celebrating Memorial Day on Monday. And don’t forget to enter the “Love Your Letters” giveaway, too!

    Hahaha I just started doing this! My flat iron is the only “iron” I own. I’ve recently gotten into sewing and the first thing I used it on was skinny straps for a dress…I use it more for fabric than hair now so it lives in the craft cabinet.
