 heaven-sent.jpg Ok, you all asked for it, and I am ready to share my ‘easy peasy’ bow with you all.   Please pardon my less than professional pictures.  I needed a spare set of hands, so my son Levi did the picture taking for me.  He’s really good, but the camera is just old.

Step 1:

ribbon-tutorial-001.jpg   Cut your base color ribbon long enough to go across your cardstock and around behind for attachment.   Lay it flat on your workspace.

Step 2:

ribbon-tutorial-002.jpg   Cut 2 or more pieces of contrasting ribbon (I use about a 3″ strip) and lay it crosswise on your base ribbon.

Step 3:

ribbon-tutorial-003.jpg  Tie your base ribbon around your contrasting ribbon.

Step 4:

ribbon-tutorial-004.jpg  Pull ribbon tight and straighten.

Step 5:

ribbon-tutorial-005.jpg   Trim ribbon edges to desired length

 Step 6:

ribbon-tutorial-006.jpg   Attach ribbon to card!

This is my first time doing a tutorial.. please leave feedback!

Here’s the deets:

Stamps:  My Favorite Things’ Baby First

Colors: Regal Rose, Bliss Blue, Barely Banana, GP White

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, copics, white gel pen

Accessories: mini brads, ribbon, dimensionals, scissors

TFL!~ and have a blessed day!

    Hey Holly! I just made a card using your easy peasy ribbon technique and I just wanted to say ‘Thanks!!” What a great technique!!

    Thank you SO much for this. I have heck’s own trouble trying to tie ribbon (blame it on being left-handed) but this is such a simple method even I can achieve! The tutorial is all-round first class.
