    I really like the ribbon, it creates a bit more of a “finished” look.  I say definitely go for it!  I also like your placement on the border of the lid.

    I think the box is beautiful without, and IHMO adding the ribbon would make it look more homemade, whereas now I would believe it was store bought. Kind of depends on the look you’re going for. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I agree that the box looks beautiful without the ribbon.

    The box is gorgeous as is and doesn’t need the ribbon.

    How would you attach it? I feel like a lot of fabric friendly glues would show through ribbon that sheer, which would lead to a less than pretty look. :/

    I think the ribbon breaks up an otherwise busy pattern. I love the pattern, but the ribbon just sort of polishes off the whole look.

    As for the glue, can you do a test on on some extra fabric, or the inside of the box where no one will see it? To at least see if the glue shows or not?

    Is this for your soon wedding or your distant wedding? You can always let it sit and come back later if you want to add the ribbon (or something else).

    The box looks great just as it is, but I do think the ribbon adds a little something to it!

    Peer pressure: DO THE RIBBON! (Begins chant) Ribbon! Ribbon! Ribbon!

     

    Oh, I just wanted to be ridiculous. It’s that time of night at work and I’m losing my mind. ๐Ÿ˜€
