Try making a border with it.
What I alwasy told my students is to take one tip for the day and do *every technique* you know (zigzag, shells, dots, rosette, whatever you have learned) with that tip to get new and different looking borders. Hold it in different ways too. Some tips will really surprise you.

True artistic creativity, comes from breaking the rules, or making them up as you go along.

What do YOU think tip #47 should be used for? That is the question.

Try to think out of the box. What do you want it to do?
We all think about using it flat, have you thought about using it with the thin edge vertical?
I wonder what that would look like.

Just a thought, not necessarily a good one!

Check your local library for the book " The Wilton Way of Cake Decorating", Volume #3, start at page 262 to 271, review the straight ribbon tubes #44-48, 1D. 2B,150 and 327. Or for your reference see if Amazon sell the book. Great reference book. HTH.
