A Ribbon Tying Tutorial

Hello Ribbon lovers! I love bringing you different techniques and uses for ribbon…sometimes it’s altering the ribbon, sometimes it’s combing ribbons, sometimes tying the ribbon differently.. all sorts of things! Today is a “let’s give this ribbon a new tie” sort of post. It combines a bit of securing and layering and .. well.. ribbony goodness!

Let’s start off with the card shall we?

Isn’t this adorable? It’s not my usual style – but I’m gaga over it. Not only about the sweet little tie of ribbon and eyelets, but also about the Basic Grey Hipster Collection layering happening.  Here’s the how to:

Easy peasy lemon squeezy right?? The card base is plain white cardstock. There’s a rectangle of Hipster with rounded corners, and then our newly tied embellishment. Layer and adhere.

Then I layered a Hello sticker from the collection with foam adhesive, and did a little border of doodled dots. I honestly can’t wait to make fifteen more of these. Different ribbons, different paper, fun eyelets. Eek. It’s quick, cute, and I know a ton of people who will love to receive this card!
