I love giving and receiving gifts that are tied up with brightly-colored, reusable ribbon. For years I traveled to Santa Monica to buy ribbon by the yard at Michael's or Jo-Anne's. Then I discovered the notions department -- specifically the ribbons and trims -- at F & S Fabrics. The choices are scrumptious and will help to create gorgeous, eco-friendly & reusable wrapping. Try some hand-dyed silk ribbon to spruce up a package wrapped in a brown paper grocery bag. Trust me, it'll be beautiful. The buttons are great for craft projects, and the $.25 pre-cut fabric squares are perfect for making simple gift bags or larger craft projects. F & S Fabrics, 10629 W. Pico Blvd., Rancho Park.
