Image Number 6 for United States Patent #6080459.
A decorative ribbon is provided with a controllable adhesive on portions of the underside, whereby the ribbon may be adhered to an article and removed from the article for relocating it on the article, if desired. The ribbon also is cut through along predetermined lines to form decorative design elements in the ribbon. The cut lines are interrupted by uncut portions of the ribbon, whereby the decorative design elements may be displaced out of the plane of ribbon along the cut lines by bending at the uncut portions, whereby to form stand-up decorative design elements which project outwardly from the ribbon while remaining attached to the ribbon by the uncut portions. A flare ribbon is formed by a plurality of longitudinally spaced, V-shaped, serrated perforation cut lines which allow the ribbon to be separated along the cut lines and flared laterally outward. A stretch ribbon is formed by a plurality of cuts extended laterally inward from opposite sides of a length of ribbon, in alternate arrangement, beyond the center of the ribbon, allowing the ribbon to be stretched to lengths substantially greater than the original length of the ribbon.
