It always gets oil absorbed and messes up the ribbon.

TY for your help

I have applied clear contact paper to the back side of the ribbon to protect it from the grease. it is kind of a PITA but it definitely works!

I would suggest a polyester ribbon, the type florists use. Please let me know how you get on.

I was taught to line the ribbon with wax paper and attach it with a glue dot. The wax paper will prevent grease from being absorbed by the ribbon.

I would use a greaseproof ribbon that you can find at a local floral supply place or craft place.
