Honestly, until I read on here I figured buying the ribbon from a reputable supplier would make it o.k. to use also. You probably will not run into problems selling at shows or locally. I wouldn't recommend putting them on Etsy. Disney and Sanrio (Hello Kitty and Angry Birds) have really been aggressive in going after people selling their copyrighted images. Etsy has a TON of copyrighted stuff for sale, but I am terrified I will be the one they choose to go after so I won't post them.
