  3. Wrap large paper doily over one edge of the package and glue or tape in place.
  4. Tie-up with a ribbon. 

3.  Put a Bow on It Ribbon - Personalize your gift wrap ribbon with a holiday message or the recipient's name!

  • Joy Letters
  • Fabric ribbon
  • Iron
  • Pressing cloth

JOY Monogram Letters

Instructions: Following package directions, iron the message, or name onto the ribbon. Use a pressing cloth as a hot iron may damage your ribbons!  If you use paper ribbon, you can glue the letters in place instead of using an iron.

Joy® Iron-on numbers and letters are available 

in different sizes, fonts and colors at your local craft stores.
