It might not be "right", but I would say the chances of trouble are lower. The problem is that the ribbon is most likely not licensed.
If the ribbon is licensed, it is iffy as to whether you can sell products made from it, but you can definately make things for personal use (including gifts). The safest advice is, consult your lawyer, lol. But www.tabberone.com
has some interesting information...
If you are buying ribbon in a store like Hobby Lobby or Walmart, it is likely licensed. Online or in a group buy, chances are good that it isn't.
