3-Dimensional Décor

Inspired by the ruching technique of a seamstress, this embellishment is fast, easy and customizable for any floral combination with your choice of favorite ribbon. Here, designer Lori McNorton chose a striking black-and-white ribbon to embellish the front of a coated paper vase filled with white Oriental hybrid lilies. Hot glue makes it easy to affix the creatively haphazard ribbon loops. While just a single side of the container is decorated here, you may choose to decorate both front and back or all four sides, depending on the occasion. The flat-bottomed container ensures easy transport in delivery vehicles.
