Continuing from the last post - If you want ribbons with a more delicate pattern use transfer paints instead of crayons. These can be applied to the paper with a very fine brush. If you want text remember to paint the words on in reverse.
Besides ribbons you could also use other items to print on such as nylon lace or elastic. For the samples below I used transfer crayons and I did them very quickly, they could be better if more time was spent on them.
