I am trying to figure out how to wrap a ribbon around a cylinder multiple times. Ultimately the ribbon would have words on it or a pattern but i need to get the basic method first. In blender, I can create a ribbon and i can create a cylinder. and shrinkwrap? or I can use the screw tool and rotate a polyline but i dont like that way--i want to be able to change the ribbon and have it map itself to the cylinder.

as far as wrapping a ribbon to a ball, i dont care about distortion too much- the ribbon might be a pattern-like a sinewave or a square wave.
