Tie One On

A ribbon that is... because that's the new theme at Jingle Belles; we're making cards that incorporate ribbon, trimmings, lace or fibers! Here's what I made:

assorted ribbons: doodlebug, american crafts, michaels and a few that I saved off packages; this technique works best with ribbons that are lightweight and fairly thin, without being sheer or you'll see the scor-tape that's holding them on buffalo plaid patterned paper: my mind's eye (the perpendicular lines of the pattern help you affix the ribbons neatly!); glossy white cardstock: the paper cut; florals: michaels and eyelet outlet; ancient brad: we r memory keepers; faux wired holly leaves of unknown origin; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, sookwang scor-tape in several widths

This is one of those ideas that's making me wonder HOW I didn't think of it earlier? Because I've made similar cards where I've done a lattice or plaid pattern with washi tape, but somehow it never occurred to me to use ribbon. I suppose partly because it's hard to attach in strips that lie completely flat? Unless, that is, you have 1/8" wide Sookwang Scor-Tape, so you can basically make your ribbon into stickers, one piece at at time. I probably didn't need to sew all the way around the edges either, because those ribbons were on there securely... but I did anyway and I like how it looks. A fabric poinsettia and a retired Eyelet Outlet paper flower are all the focal point you need when you have NINE different ribbons, am I right? ;)

Hop over to Jingle Belles to see Stephanie's beautiful ribbon-bedecked card and start planning what you'll link up with us this fortnight!


  1. Gorgeous, but I've come to expect nothing but perfection with your prompts. Sure pick a theme that I didn't bring to the cottage, I might see if I brought lace. As always a great theme.
