Holiday Card – Glad Tidings

 
 
 
 
Start by adhering your  patterned paper to your cardbase. Next take your May Arts Ribbon and cut 4, 4" pieces.
 
 
 
Cut the ends of the ribbon flag-style. Remember you will need a sharp scissor. Next take the ribbon, fold it in half but at an angle and staple it using a tiny attacher. You could easily use adhesive but I find this works the best.
 
 
 
 
Continue to staple them. You will need approximately four depending on the size of the flower you would like to make and the size of your ribbon. For this card, I used four. Place them in a circle.
 
 
 
 
Leave a small place in  the center for the flower.
 
 
 
 
Embellish the card with more Echo Park stickers and you are done! You have a quick and easy holiday card that you could easily mass produce for all of your holiday needs!
 
 
 

Supplies:

  • Patterned Paper
  • Cardstock
  • Tiny Attacher 
  • Flower
  • Sentiment

    I found the special Holiday Bow that I want to send out this year It popped off the page to me and it will be worth the extra work to give them out and the receivers will probably save them for a long time. I know that I save my favorites from year to year.
    I also love the bow that is displayed in this section. I love the combination of Echo Park Products and the May Arts Trims.
