Get Personal: Ribbon-Ready DIY Projects

Rejoice, DIY brides! Personalizing your wedding has just become even more fun and creative thanks to the Epson LabelWorks Printable Ribbon Kit ($69.99).

This nifty new product comes in a compact carrying case that holds the printer, two ribbon cartridges, six AAA batteries and an optional AC adapter (batteries and adapter not included.)

I love its versatility: You can make one-of-a-kind creations for a variety of wedding items by printing names and messages directly onto satin ribbons in different fonts, colors and styles. It’s ideal for gifts and guest favors:

and for labeling the candies and treats on your dessert table:
