You can make this gorgeous ruffly gift topper with a few folds and stitches using wide ribbon. If you want the loops to be bigger, just use a longer piece of ribbon and make the folded segments longer.

You will need 32 inches of ribbon for the topper then extra for wrapping around the gift.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 topper


  • 2" wide wire-edged or sturdy ribbon
  • scissors
  • needle
  • thread to match ribbon


  1. Take a segment of ribbon about 32 inches long. Fold in half once.

  3. Now repeat folding so you have 8 equal segments.
  4. Unfold. The ribbon should look like this.
  5. Accordion fold each segment so it's zig-zagging. Thread your needle, knot the end, then begin stitching the lower corner of every fold so it stays intact. You now have 4 large ribbon loops.
  6. Stitch your way across the base.

  8. Make a knot at the other base corner and cut.
  9. Now, for each fold you've created, at the upper fold, push it down to create a heart shape for every loop.
  10. Now you will have turned the 4 large loops into 8 smaller ones.
  11. Make a small knot stitch in the base corners.

  13. Now, use your fingers to fluff each of the 8 loops so they are puffy.
  14. Use more ribbon to criss-cross tie your gift, then stitch on the topper.
