Economically priced Florist poly ribbon is the most versatile and widely used throughout the floristry trade. Easy to use and work with, our own brand Floralcraft® premium quality polypropylene waterproof ribbon, 'Polytie', has a beautiful satin smooth finish and is offered in a choice of popular colours including metallic gold and metallic silver. Shrink wrapped for extra protection, our general purpose Floralcraft® 2 inch wide (5 cm) premium quality polypropylene waterproof ribbon is supplied on a 100 yard roll (91m) with a protective flange for ease of storage. Slightly stiffened polyester, waterproof, anti static, tough and durable ribbon for bow making, this ribbon holds its shape well. It is the first choice for economical gift wrap ribbon and for putting finishing touches to bouquets and posies.
5mm wide polyester curling ribbon is supplied on a 455 metre reel with a protective plastic flange and, like the 2 inch poly ribbon, is also available in a wide range of attractive colours to choose from, including metallic silver and gold and some with a holographic finish. Curling ribbon is easy to use for creating decorative bows and is most widely used to decorate and attach to balloons, but also a quick and easy way to embellish gift boxes and presentation baskets as well as to decorate reception or function dining tables, or coiled and used to decorate place setting wine glasses and glass vases to embellish fresh and dried floral arrangements. For the sort of 'curly bows' most commonly seen on gift packaging, simply cut lengths then hold the curling ribbon tightly at one end and drag it across the blade of a pair of scissors. For gift boxes, this is more easily performed if you tie the ribbon round the box first and securely knot, leaving long enough trailing ends and then curl them while attached to the box. For bushy curly ribbon decoration, you can make the curls and then staple lots of them together and attach where needed.
