  1. I prefer ribbon since I can tie a better bow with it. Baker’s twine I can wind around a part of the card, but that happens rarely.

    Reply
  2. I always let the card determine whether I use baker’s twine or ribbon. Each card is unique and has it’s own special “feel.” This “feel” always points me in the right direction.

    Reply
  3. It’s really depends on the card or project I’m doing. But ribbon seems to add bling and there are soooo many colors and choices. I prefer 1/2 inch or smaller and a ribbon that really gives the bow a nice shape and form. Quilty secret I usually wait until the Clearance Rack add’s some and buy up. Never met a ribbon or DSP I didn’t like.

  4. I like the look of twine and it’s easier for me to tie into a bow, however I also like to cut thin strips of ribbon and tie a bow for a “messy” look.

    Reply
  5. I have been using more twine than before. If I use ribbon, it is in small pieces rather than wrapping and bows. I still have and enjoy a huge SU! ribbon and twine collection!

  6. I love the ribbon, because you have more to choose from. Don’t get me wrong I have used the twine also if I only have a tiny spot.

  7. Ribbon, Ribbon, and more Ribbon!
    The endless possibilities of colors, texture, edging, and size make it my go to embellishent to add dimension to my cars.

  8. Ribbon, always makes everything look lovely, although Baker’s Twine can really lift a card or project too! Love them both!

  9. I love all the colors and textures of the ribbon but I tend to use the bakers twine more because it is easier for me to tie. Thank you for another fun blog giveaway!

  11. I love both! I tend to use more baker’s twine currently but have way more ribbon. Thanks for the chance at the blog candy!

    Reply
  12. As much as I love & have lots of ribbon, I tend to use more twine because of the bulkiness when I mail cards. If in-person delivery, then ribbon & lots of dimensionals!

    Reply
  13. I would say that Ribbon would be my goto but i like them both! Depending on the look and feel of the card.

    Reply
  14. I I love both!! The ribbon because of the variety of colors and textures. The twine because of its ease of use!

    Reply
  15. Wow! That’s a really hard choice, but if you make me choose, I think I’ll go with ribbon simply because there’s so many choices for beautiful Stampin Up ribbons. Thanks for the giveaway. I love your blog and all the inspiration you provide.

  16. I like both but find myself reaching for baker’s twine more than ribbon. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Have a good day!

    Reply
  17. Do I have to choose? I like them both…but probably use the Baker’s twine the most; mainly because it doesn’t make such a bump in the envelope.

    Reply
  18. Hi Mary, hope you are fine. I love it all! And the style of the card determines the decoration and embellishment of the card. And I have both in my stache, and I love using all of them. Have a great day.

    Reply
  19. Baker’s twine! I love using it to tie buttons and other accessories. Plus it’s so versatile and goes with everything for a bit of a rustic look and feel

    Reply
  20. I really like bakers twine, and use it a lot, but the variety of ribbon is irresistible to me I add a little simple bow (basically just tie a short piece of ribbon into a single knot and attach with a glue dot) or go more by wrapping the card front with ribbon and adding a more elaborate bow.

    Reply
  21. Most of my cards are put in the mail, so twine is the way to go. If I am hand-delivering a card, I will use a ribbon.

    Reply
  22. I love both ribbon and baker’s twine but end up using baker’s twine more often! Especially for the more masculine cards!

    Reply
  23. Hello! I prefer ribbon because it has a more elegant look typically. I like when the ribbon has a shine to it and when it is narrower and easy to tie. I prefer twine over wide ribbons that don’t tie well.

    Reply
  24. I have always loved Stampin Up ribbons. This matchy-matchy gal loves the colors, they tie like butter., and they last forever! So excited for a chance at another wonderful opportunity. Thank you!

    Reply
  25. I like both of them but prefer the twine since you can use a little, for an accent, or use more for something more dramatic.

    Reply
  26. Lately I’ve used more twine/Baker’s Twine than ribbon. It seems less bulky for cards to be mailed. For me ribbon is especially nice for Christmas and Wedding cards and a must for the Little Treat Boxes.✂️

    Reply
  27. I so appreciate the creative and inspiring card samples posted to your site! Your paper craft talents and those of your team keep me smiling from ear-to-ear with each post! As for the ribbon vs. twine, I do like that the twine keeps the envelope less bulky. For ribbon, I tend to use knots more often than bows.

    Reply
  28. I love the look of ribbon but it doesn’t always work well for mailing. For me, bakers’ twine is more versatile and easier to store in my small house.

    Reply
  29. I usually prefer ribbon but it depends on the card or project. Stampin’Up! Has the most delicious selection of ribbons.

    Reply
  30. I love both…both are versatile and add flair to any project. Ribbon adds a fancy touch while I love twine for tags.

    Reply
  31. Hard choice! There are so many pretty ribbons available. . .

    But for me I like to use baker’s twine. Most of my cards are sent, because we do not live close to family and friends anymore (moved to a different state), so to stay in touch I love sending HM cards. Twine works better in the mail.

    Reply
  32. I love to put ribbon on my cards for a pop of pretty !!! So many colors, patterns, textures and widths to add a pop of fun 🙂

    Reply
  33. Wow, that is a difficult decision because I use them both frequently. But I’m going to go with ribbon because I use it most frequently because there are more colors, textures, to match my cards!

    Reply
  34. Both are great, but since I don’t often see my friends in person with Covid, I think that using baker’s twine still adds that little extra and goes through the mail a little easier.

    Reply
  35. I love them both depending on the project (of course). My preference often goes to ribbon to make a more obvious statement; however, I am most partial to the 1/4 and 3/8 inch ribbons. The wider ribbon seems harder for me to tie and it makes a bulky knot, while the skinny ribbon is a bit challenging for me to control. I love the really flexible ribbon and really, really, love the coordinating colors. What’s not to love about SU colors? Thanks for asking.

    Reply
  36. I love both! The choice depends on the style of card! I tend to use Baker’s twine on masculine/country/rustic style cards and ribbon for a splash of color and fun on all the other style cards. Appreciate you sharing your talents with all of us!

    Reply
  37. Hi Mary
    Both are so great to work with but ribbon has so much more possibilities. Ribbon is flexible and versatile with so many color options and textures. It’s available in so many sizes and can be used in so many different ways. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Reply
  38. Ribbon or Baker’s twine, depends on the type of card I am making. I love the elegance of ribbon on a floral card or a special Christmas card. Twine for autumn or masculine cards.
    What a special bundle you are offering this time. Thank you for the opportunity to win.
    You are so inspiring!

  40. My favorite is ribbon. So many people hate tying bows.
    I love to tie them in any size with any kind of ribbon.

    Reply
  41. I prefer twine to ribbon, although I have lots of both. And love SU makes ribbon to match the cardstock.

    Reply
  42. I like all the color choices you have with ribbon. However I think twine is easier to work with and adds just enough to the simpler cards which I prefer.

    Reply
  43. I like ribbon better than bakers’ twine as it makes projects look more “special.” However, bakers’ twine also has an important role in making masculine cards and for cards where one wants less bulk for mailing.

    Reply
  44. Although I love the simplicity of mailing cards that use twine, I prefer the pop of a ribbon! Now if I could just master how to make nice bows all the time…

  45. I love love love ribbon…all of it! I tie it better than the baker’s twine and neater looking…
    classy!!!

  46. Baker’s Twine…thin enough for mailing, adds just the right touch, masculine or feminine…twine is perfect!

    Reply
  47. Love them both. I tend to use bakers’ twine for masculine cards and ribbon for a more feminine look. Can’t pick just one!

    Reply
  48. I like the colors and different textures and widths of the ribbons, but the twine is easier to tie and looks more modern.

    Reply
  49. I really like ribbon the best but have a hard time deciding where to place it on the card. I do like your use of ribbon on your card. I always enjoy looking at your card creations. Thanks for sharing.

    Reply
  50. Bring on the ribbon! I love the color and texture that ribbons add to a card. I particularly appreciate that Stampin’Up! ribbons coordinate with ink colors so everything works together so well.

    Reply
  51. I found your cards on Pinterest and just love what you do! Started following you there and am going to subscribe to your newsletter. Thank you so much for the free pdf’s. Most demonstrators don’t do that. And I hope you pick me! ?

  52. I like ribbon on a card. Stamping Up has beautiful ribbon to embellish a card. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Reply
  53. Sometimes, it’s hard to say. I like both. I love wrapping gifts and making cards using both because it gives them texture and depth. Mixing ribbons and seeing the recipient’s eyes light up when giving them the package or card.

    Reply
  54. I love and use both – especially love them mixed! I guess my style is more towards baker’s twine. However, I try to create a card towards the recipient’s style, so I often use ribbon.

    Reply
  55. I love ribbon (which is why I have way more than I’ll ever use). To me it just finishes the card and takes it that next step up from pretty to glam!

    Reply
  56. Such a versatile bundle being offered. This can be used for many stamping projects; for masculine or feminine recipients. It definitely will add to my stampin’ up collection.

    Reply
  57. Both – I like ribbon for its beauty and twine for the ease of use and less bulky for mailing most of the time – thanks for a chance to win. I enjoy following your blog.

    Reply
  58. For me I think that trying to decide between ribbon and twine is like comparing apples and oranges. I use twine for more “rustic” cards and ribbon for more elegant cards. I use a variety of both. For ribbon I use a narrower type rather than 1/2 inch. I love all the lovely colors of ribbon. For twine my go to is usually tan or off white rather than colored.

    Reply
  59. What a beautiful set and the sayings are nice. I make cards and donate to the local convalescent home.The sayings here would be perfect for the patients.

    Reply
  60. Hi Mary,

    I will use the twine more. Because it’s just a little extra touch, but it doesn’t take the whole show!

    Reply
  61. That is hard because the twine gives a different feel to a card than the ribbon. I also believe that whatever stamp set is being used will be enhanced by whatever ribbon or twine that is added. So either is great for the finished outcome.

    Reply
  62. Bakers Twine
    easy to mail a card with twine instead of bulkier ribbon
    but come on…who doesn’t love ribbon?

    Reply
  63. 90% of the time I go with Bakers Twine! It is so easy to work with and seems to match my style of card design better than ribbon.

    Reply
  64. I like to use both. If I’m trying for an elegant look, ribbon wins hands down. If I want something small, I like to add a baker’s twine bow.

    Reply
  65. I like ribbon if I have the right coordinating one. If not, baker’s twine is great cause it goes with everything!!!

    Reply
  66. I like both – I use ribbon for a fancier more elegant look and I use twine for a water scene or a masculine look

    Reply
  67. I use both, but prefer ribbon as it comes in many different colors and prints and can be both feminine or masculine.

    Reply
  68. I prefer ribbon. I am a ribbonholic! I love the softness of it. Really love all the beautiful cards. Thankyou

    Reply
  69. Although I love the SU! ribbon, I find the Baker’s Twine is often more versatile for my projects. Sometimes I use both ribbon and Baker’s Twine!

    Reply
  70. I do not qualify- PAL…. Twine is more mailable. I love ribbon choices more—but narrow width, so it is mailable?. Wow U have a lot of followers.

    Reply
  71. I love all of the beautiful Stampin Up ribbon and using it on all of my projects! It adds an extra layer of prettiness to my cards.

    Reply
  72. Very, very difficult decision. Ribbon or baker’s twine? It depends so much on the type of card. Ribbon adds a bit of class; twine is much more casual. Ribbon would probably be my choice.

    Reply
  73. I love ribbon (a little bit of a hoarder) and use it more than bakers twine. I think bakers twine can go with any card where many times ribbon has to be or should be color coordinated. They are both great embellishments!

    Reply
  74. I love ribbon but I prefer Baker’s twine especially when mailing a card. It’s not as bulky as ribbon and adds a nice accent!

    Reply
  75. I like using ribbon and bakers twine. It all depends on which looks better on the project. Thank you for a chance to win!

    Reply
  76. Ribbon, if I have to pick one. I have used twine a couple of times but since it’s thicker (usually) and rounded I find it harder to wrap it around the card stock without making the paper bend and then I feel it’s too loose on the card.

    Reply
  77. Now that Stampin’ Up! no longer sells the 1/4” grosgrain ribbon, baker’s twine has been my go-to. No bulk on the cards, very versatile!

    Reply
  78. I love them both but prefer bakers twine because I can make combinations using two or three coordinating colors. There are endless possibilities!

    Reply
  79. This is a hard one, I love both, but I really love bakers twine, so easy to tie and not so heavy on the cards. But in reality I want them both:)

    Reply
    • Reading your post it is opposite from mine so I’d like to know how you use it so it doesn’t seem heavy on the cards which has been my issue when I use it? TIA

  80. Ribbon is my favorite. I love how a piece of ribbon or a ribbon bow adds a little elegance to a card.

  81. Great giveaway, Mary! I love the look of ribbon; however, twine is easier to mail & I use it more often. I’m voting for ribbon tho’ because I love it and I’m a collector of ribbon!

  82. I like both ribbon & bakers twine equally. Depending on my project they can both leave lovely results♥️

    Reply
  83. Ribbon, ribbon and more ribbon! Stamping’ Up has so many pretty ribbons to choose from that it’s hard to pick a favorite!

    Reply
  84. Bakers twine is much thinner and easier to mail. That being said, ribbon is so much prettier. Ribbon. Final answer.

    Reply
  85. Bakers Twine for me. I am all thumbs when I try to use ribbon. to tie a bow. I will use ribbon to stretch across a panel or make a knot.

    Reply
  86. Real tough choice. Ribbon is great for the feminine cards, while twine works well for the guys. However, I have used twine for the ladies and ribbon for the gents. If I had to choose one over the other, I would go with ribbon.

    Reply
  87. RIBBON!! Twine is OK, but it can’t compare to the color and interest of a beautiful ribbon and a perfect bow!

    Reply
  88. Love everything about labels and dies. This set also includes perfect stamps. A winner in every way!

    I use ribbon primarily, but love all types of accessories on my cards.

  89. Hard to choose as I use each one a little differently but I believe I would have to go with ribbon. Thanks!

  92. Although I find it much easier to made bows with the baker’s twine, I prefer the ribbon for the texture and color.

  93. I prefer the twine it is better to work with for me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to win.

  94. Wow. I love both. For cards that ship, I try to use Bakers Twine or really flat ribbon. For 3-D projects, it’s ribbon and twine. Thanks for the chance to win.

  95. It is hard choice but If I were stranded on a deserted island stamping, I would want ribbon. And chocolate.

    Reply
  96. I think it depends on the card. I love ribbon for softer cards and twine for more masculine cards. Although I’ve used them the other way around too. But, if I had to choose one, my choice would be ribbon. 🙂

  100. I like the ribbon. The baker’s twine is too thick. The linen thread was really nice to use also.

  101. I prefer ribbon-Stampin Up has a variety of beautiful ribbons to choose from and I own most of them!

    Reply
  102. My choice would be the baker’s twine. I don’t use either very often. The reason I don’t use ribbon very often is because it makes my card so thick that it takes extra postage to mail. The people who buy my cards don’t like that.

    Reply
  103. Oh so hard to choose! I love the look of ribbon on a card but I also love the way bakers twine lies flat for mailing! Can I say both?

    Reply
  104. I have chosen baker’s twine. It is easy to tie in a bow & it is not so bulky to put in the mail. The majority of my cards go thru the mail so that is a nice embellishment without much bulk. I still use ribbon as well…….there are so many beautiful ribbons that I can NOT use them as well……….just not as much as before. Thanks for a great blog for inspiration & a great chance at a beautiful set of “blog candy”.

  105. It completely depends on the project. Ribbon is more elegant and feminine, and twine is more casual and masculine.

  106. Baker’s twine – I like the more rustic look. It’s easier to tie, plus just a knot, no bow, looks good. It adds something without looking too fussy.

  111. It depends on the card. For a glam, classy look I will use ribbon. For masculine, farmhouse or earthy feel, I use twine. For the holidays a mix of both.

    Reply
  112. I feel it depends on the look I am trying to achieve. If I want a more of a rustic look or a touch of a whimsical finish than I use the twine. If I want a noticeable look or softer look than I go with the ribbon. If I really have to choose it would be ribbon. I feel you can accomplish more diversified looks with ribbon.

    Reply
  113. Both.. I think ribbon finishes a card sweetly or elegantly depending on the card. Twine gives a nice casual look to s card. I also like with a masculine card.

    Reply
  114. I really prefer ribbon but use baker’s twine more often as I find it difficult to make presentable bows.

    Reply
  115. Although there are cards that baker’s twine works, ribbon always adds an extra special classy touch. I want the recipient to know they are extra special!

    Reply
  116. Hmmm. I prefer twine for bows etc; however ribbon is a nice added touch when wrapped around the card as a trim. I just can’t tie ribbon bows very well..guess that’s because I had sons and no ribbons or bow in their hair 🙂 Thanks Mary for another great giveaway

  117. I love using ribbon and or bows on a ladies card and the twine for more masculine cards. Just gives the right touch for finishing off a card.

  122. I have a good selection of both, but I tend to reach for twine more often. The neutral shades go great with almost any card design.

  126. I use baker’s twine more often. It makes pretty, easy to tie little bows. And I love double bows . Sometimes I think ribbon bows can overpower a card. Twine works great on masculine cards too.

  149. Love both twine and ribbon! Depending on the look and feel determines if I use twine or ribbon. Ribbon bow tying can be challenging on narrow ribbons.

  150. The baker’s twine would be lovely on the card. It adds to the colors of the bird, but isn’t overstated. Perfect embellishment. As usual, you have created a beautiful little “work of art”.

  151. I prefer the bakers twine for masculine cards and the ribbon for feminine cards. I am happy to see more colors coming out in the bakers twine.

  152. I love to use Twine on masculine cards, but love the softness of ribbon and a bow on a feminine card or child’s. I’m busy making children’s birthday cards to be included with birthday party kits being donated to our local food pantry.

  153. Mary-thank you for the opportunity to win 🙂 I prefer Baker’s twine. With sending cards through the mail I can add a little dimension without it costing more to send or the envelope being a mess from the machine going over the lump.

  154. Wow great prize thank you for the chance- I love adding ribbon Stampin up has so many great ones to choose from and even some to color to match any project!

  155. Between baker’s twine and ribbon???…Almost impossible to choose!… I really do prefer ribbon because they are another example of the perfect matches in color that Stampin Up offers.

  156. so hard to choose but I would say bakers twine is more versatile, even though I love the ribbons just as much.

  157. Twine or ribbon…. That’s a hard choice…,,I love both!!!!!

    But I must choose the ribbon… love all our matching colors!

  158. It’s too hard too choose. I love them equally well for different uses. Ribbon is prettier and more elegant. I use baker’s twine a lot when making more masculine cards.

  159. I like to use both twine and ribbon, but I believe ribbon definitely wins my vote, as the colors and variety of textures allow you so much flexibility.

  160. I prefer ribbon for my mailed cards because it’s flatter and so works better in the US postal service automated machines.

  161. I like to use Baker Twine on masculine cards

    but for my choice it really is ribbon, there is so many choices of the different sizes and colors. I don’t like to do bulky tho prefer the thinner
    ones and not many bows.

  162. I really like Baker’s Twine. It doesn’t add a lot of bulk and my post office doesn’t give me a hard time when I mail cards with it.

    Reply
  163. I love the tasteful dies! Now as to the choosing baker’s twine or ribbon. Like many of the other comments, I like baker’s twine, have lots of it but for some reason, I use ribbon over the baker’s twine. I have even saw lots of tutorials and card ideas using baker’s twine but again, for some reason, I always use ribbon. I just like how the ribbon gives cards a glammed up effect. If I am hand delivering a card, I will even use ribbon on the outside depending on the occasion. Very cool question. Makes you think about it.

    Reply
  164. I like both…. Depending on the application. But bakers twine is easier for me to tie, which is nice.

    Reply
  165. I really love Ribbon! It’s like adding the final touch

  166. Both serve their own purpose. If I had to choose just one it would be ribbon though. There are so many more choices.

  170. I prefer using ribbon. SU has so many pretty shiny ones. Bling is my thing. Thank you for the opportunity to win some blog candy.

    Reply
  171. I like baker’s twine as it’s so easy to work with but depending on the project a little ribbon can go along way too. I like to just tape it onto the back vs going all the way around and then trying to tie a knot or bow. Knots are so much easier though.

    Reply
  172. I generally use ribbon because I find it to be prettier, however, there are times when the twine is a better fit for the mood of the card.

    Reply
  173. Baker twine! It is a lot easier for me to work with…tide a bow or wrap it around. Thanks for the opportunity to win

    Reply
  174. Ribbon because I love the different textures, and some I can color to match, and my favs are the metallic edged ones.

    Reply
  175. Can you really choose? They each have a purpose when creating cards. Ribbon can really add a nice pop of color while twine is more subtle and earthy. It just depends on the look you’re going for. I will say this, however….twine is much easier to tie!

    Reply
  176. Baker’s twine is easier for me to tie. Less bulky, too, when mailing a card. The ribbons are pretty, though.

  177. I love ribbon. Bows just dress up any card and make me smile! I have a jar of pre-tied bows ready to use in ever color.

  178. I love ribbon (and buy a lot of it) but I find I mostly use baker’s twine because it’s better for mailing cards. I also like that it can be easily colored wih Stampin’ Blends to match any color in the cardstock or designer paper.
    Thanks for your ongoing inspiration.

  179. Baker’s Twine is my favorite, although you wouldn’t know it since I certainly have plenty of pretty ribbon!

  181. Ribbon is my go to embellishment. I love all the beautiful colors and widths and how it dresses up my sometimes blah looking cards.

  182. I love ribbon because there are so many options. You can dress up a card or add a pop of color or sometime it just finishes up a card!

  183. What a terrific give-a-way! I have a tendency to use more ribbon on a card. I stock way too much of it!

    Reply
  184. My choice is definitely ribbon because there is so much of it and it helps me cover up a myriad of boo boos!

  185. Depending on the card, I usually prefer the texture of ribbon although at times twine is the better choice.

  186. It depends on the card. I love a simple bakers twine to add a little touch of interest. But, sometimes you need ribbon to make the card pop. I use both.

  190. This is a hard one! I’d have to go with Bakers Twine as it’s easier to work with, but I will say I don’t think it has the impact that ribbon does. Ribbon typically makes a bigger statement with in a card design.
    Thank you for the opportunity to play in your giveaway!

  191. I actually like both. Wrap the bakers twine around the ribbon, perfect bow. They both work really well together but if I had to choose just one, probably ribbon.

    Reply
  192. I like the look of baker’s twine. It is more my style. However, ribbon is much easier to attach tobthe card.

  193. I like both, I think it depends on the cards I made. If I had to choose one it would be ribbon. Thank-you for doing your videos, giveaways.

  201. Depends on the card Mary
    Twine is great even on a guy card easy to use, but
    Ribbon with fake bow or real bow
    Makes the card more special for me

    Reply
  202. That is a hard choice. A small Baker’s Twine bow can put the finishing touch on a card. But Stampin’ Up! has the most beautiful and best quality ribbon so I will have to say ribbon.

    Reply
  203. Although I love the variety and beauty of ribbon, Baker’s twine is less bulky and won’t cause me to wonder if I should add more postage to my envelopes. And it’s great for masculine cards!

  204. Good Morning Mary,

    Another generous give away. Whoever receives this bundle will be blessed. I would love to receive it, but I will be happy for whomever receives it. I am blessed just by finding you and receiving your emails with your and your teams card ideas. So, thanks to all for sharing. May you be blessed as well.

    I prefer twine or the 1/4″ ribbons. Although I have seen cards with the wider ribbons that I admire, I, personally, do better with the narrower ribbon or the twine.

  209. My style is more Plain & Simple so I reach for bakers twine (actually, SU linen thread) more often. Of course, it’s whatever the project calls for- I use plenty of ribbon too. But mostly linen thread. Thanks Mary. Love your blog and all you do.

    Reply
  210. That is really hard. I want to say I like them equal. However, if you go by how much I own, then ribbon must be the winner.

    Reply
  211. I use both. Often twine for masculine cards and ribbon on feminine cards. Although I like seeing ribbon with twine cinched in the center. Looks nice and is less bulky for mailing.

    Reply
  212. Usually I prefer ribbon but am finding I am starting to like the baker’s twine more and more. It just depends on the mood I am in and what I am creating. There is definitely a more masculine feel to baker’s twine on a card for a man but it can make an elegant addition to a card for a woman too. Oh, can you tell I like them both!! Thanks for doing what you do Mary – love following you and all your ideas!!

    Reply
  213. Both are great finishing touches but I’d have to say in this case I’ll say the ribbon. This gold shimmer is so beautiful!

  214. Given the stash I have of it I would have to say ribbon, tough choice though as they are both fun to use.

    Reply
  215. I use to use ribbon more but now I use twine most often. It matches about anything and is thin enough to blend in and accent a card.

  216. I like to use both ribbon and Baker’s twine. I like to wrap some ribbon around and then cinch it with Baker’s twine. I guess if I can only use one it would be ribbon.

  219. My first thought was ribbon; but sometimes it really depends on the card. Stampin Up’s ribbon is just so beautiful and it does give you a lot more variety – texture, patterns, reverseable, and narrow or wide.

  220. I use twine more often, as it is more suited to the type of cards that I make, but there are times when nothing but a beautiful ribbon will do!

  221. It’s a hard choice. I love the look of baker’s twine, but probably use more ribbon. I use a bow maker because of my arthritis and it works better with ribbon.

  227. I like both ribbon and baker’s twine. Which one I use depends on what else is on the card. If I want a thin bow for example I use twine. If I want more color I use ribbon. If I could only pick one I would choose ribbon. So many different colors and textures.

  232. I love both, but it depends on the project. Baker’s twine is lovely on just the right card. But Stampin Up! has such beautiful ribbon and most times I want that elegant touch!

  251. I prefer bakers twine most of the time. The main reason is the bulk of ribbon is too much to mail. If I can get away with just putting a strip of ribbon that’s ok, but most of the time I want a bow, and that means twine.
