This year is the Year of the Dragon in Chinese lunar calendar. Thus, a lot of couples will try to give birth to a baby boy or girl as they believe babies born on the Year of the Dragon somehow is very 'powerful'.
Apart from the above, I also begin to like the idea of making baby announcement cards ever since I made my baby boy Jaxzel's announcement cards which gotten a lot of good feedback. I also plan to make some baby congratulating cards.
Thus, I been looking for some materials to make those cards especially ribbon. I really like the idea to have some ribbons in the card as it is card for baby. I can imagine that those cards look cuter with ribbon especially when it is a tag.
Again, eBay is my source of search. There are a lot of ribbon sellers in eBay selling different kinds of ribbons, designs and patterns, lengths and sizes including few designs on baby related ribbons. At first, I am attracted by these baby related ribbons. Somehow, the price of the ribbon per length has turned me off as it is too expensive. I also concern on the stock availability as I plan to purchase in few yards first to make some samples. In case I need to make the baby announcement in bulk later, I afraid the stock might be out. Thus, I need to ensure that my baby related ribbon is available when I make some samples.
In the end, I choose to have ribbon that can be easily found such as gingham or checked ribbon. There are not a lot of sellers selling these kind of ribbon. However, I remembered I inquire before from a seller in Malaysia that sell this design. This seller is known as Ribbon Ideas where its office is located just few kilometers away from my house.

I hope I can start my baby announcement cards soon using these ribbons!
