Ribbony Goodness, part 2

A real treat for the eyes today... the wonderful wall of ribbon at my local cake shop.
As I mentioned yesterday this place is pretty incredible and worth a visit even if you never needed to bake a cake in your life. If you live nowhere near Gloucestershire definitely investigate your own local cake-supplies shops... you never know what crafty goodness you might find! Here are some of the yummy ribbons I couldn't resist this week:
I'm particularly loving that pink stripe and the red ribbon with the little hearts - so subtly adorable! I also treated myself to some truly lush paper cake ribbons which will make amazing additions to my gift-wrapping stash.
The fat silver trim was only 50p a metre and the very narrow ones only 20p (including that fab robins egg blue). Bargain. They will look so chic on simple brown paper parcels, very luxe and terribly on trend with that paper lace look. I'll be doing a few giftwrapping tutorials later in the year with ideas for giftwrap, tags, and parcel decoration and all this trim will definitely be making an appearance.

What a fab shop! I'll have to check out my local cake shops, I find my garden centres are not too bad.

Oh Wow, this cake shop looks amazing. I will definately visit it if I travel up to Gloucstershire.

Geez, I wish I had a cake shop near me with stuff like that! You're so lucky!
