This empty ribbon spool will go from BLAH TO TADA! as we turn it into a greeting card/letter!
Aside from the empty ribbon spool, we will also need a pair of scissors, glue and ruled paper.
Make a long paper strip by cutting ruled paper along the lines and gluing the edges. Compose a letter to your favorite friend.
Dress up the spool with stickers.
Glue the end (the edge where you signed your name) to the empty spool and wind the rest of the strip around it.
Make an envelope using decorative paper.
Insert your letter and mail it. TADA! -- Old fashioned instant messaging!
