One use is for threading buttons into sets instead of using wool. I always find the wool catches and does not thread through the button hole easily. With the curling ribbon, you cut it in half with a point on the end and then it will go in almost any button hole so easily.
Though I mainly use it as curling ribbon packaging. Why do I like it so much - because it can be reused many times over.
