Ribbon jewelry pouch tutorial. This ribbon pouch is an inexpensive way to package your jewelry, and looks beautiful. I used these pouches during my craft show for my buyers new treasures. These work great for small jewelry purchases such as a pair of earrings, an anklet or even a bracelet. You will need to buy ribbon with a wire edge, the ribbon pictured is 2 1/2" wide. You will also need to hot glue the edges. First take your ribbon and cut a piece 7" long. Step 2 fold 1/2" in on the top and bottom edge and glue them down. The wire edge will help hold them in place. Step 3 fold 2 1/2" inches more so you will have the remaining ribbon for your flap. Glue side edges down. And viola, you have a beautiful gift pouch to accent jewelry purchases.
