I always make a special name badge for my convnetion bag. This year I tried the curling ribbon techique. It worked great, and I was asked by several demonstrators how I did it. I packed my badge in my suitcase, used it on my bag all week, packed it back in my suitcase - and it looked just it did when I first made. So I am sharing the recipe.
Curled ribbon recipe:
Wrap your ribbon around a dowel stick - can be various sizes, and clip it onto the dowel with a wooden clip clothespin - wrap the ribbon going down the dowel, then clothespin it at the end. You will be using two clothespins. How close you wrap will determine how tight your curls are. Bake it in the oven at 325 degress for 15-20 minutes. Then you have permanently curled ribbon. Will not come un-curled even if you get it wet - how cool it that!
