Hi Stephanie! I taped the ends together at the bottom of the box. Another option would be to fasten the ends together with a staple (or a mini staple) if you wanted to be able to slide the ribbon off the gift.

I LOVE the ribbon flowers! I am new to using ribbon around gifts. How did you tie the ribbon flower around the gift?
