I created this layout using only cardstock, ribbon and embellishments. No need for patterned paper when the ribbon is pretty!

Project Recipe:

Your first step is to cut all of your cardstock layers.

On that bottom layer of black cardstock is where I adhered my mitered corner glitter washi tape. I simply cut strips of the washi that where 11.75” long, snipped those corners and adhered to the cardstock.

Then cut different lengths of the gold star ribbon to fit on the top 2/3 of your layout. I cut 12 pieces.

I also created a border with the glitter washi tape, matted in a couple of layers of cardstock. I also added a piece of the 3” gold mesh near the middle of the layout.

 I chose to use a glue gun to adhere my strips of gold stars.

I also added a strip of the gold chain cord ribbon to my border. It adds some very pretty texture and more shine. I also cut a single star from the ribbon to accent my golden title.

The final step is to mat your photo, and add a few more simple embellishments. I used some more of the gold washi tape to create photo corners.
