Striped Grosgrain Ribbon

Can you say obsessed, yet again?
First gold and now ribbon...
There are just so many darned excellent ways to use ribbon, I just can't get over how much I love it. 
Every Fourth of July I deck my hair and sometimes even my clothes with navy and white striped grosgrain ribbon. It's such a simple and thrifty way to spruce anything up!
There are so many other ways besides wrapping packages with it, I love the idea of wrapping it around the base of each cake layer...
Here are my faves:
Cut strips, over lap them and glue as fun banners.

Cut little strips and tie to the end of cut bamboo skewers
Do-it-yourself drink sticks: HERE

TOO cute! Just using ribbon in a bow would suffice, but this is great!
