Turning Scraps in to Ribbon Banners
Hi everyone! DeeDee here today with a video tutorial on layering ribbon into a bunting/banner!
If you’ll remember back to my Halloween Mantle Decor post I layered some grosgrain stripes with a bit of eyelet lace in a super long banner to wrap around things on my mantle. Well it struck me a few weeks ago, not only would it be useful for you to see me sewing it in action, but it’d also make GREAT (and relatively FAST) Christmas cards!
So grab some ribbon! I used the White 1 inch Tinsel Edged Ribbon (381 series) and the 5/8 Eyelet Trim (447 series). Dust off your sewing machine and thread, some scissors and get ready to give your little fingers a workout!
Don’t forget you can make your banner as long or as short as you need, use it for cards, layouts, altered bits, hang it in some home décor… anything! I wrapped it around two cards in two different ways:
One layered around the top corner, and one just strung across the top. The banner can be easily glued down, or sewn into place with a matching (or contrasting!) thread.
And here I tied some burlap twine through jingle bells, bowed it, and glued it down to my sentiment. I’m a big fan of texture and just adore using cheesecloth against nice smooth cardstock/papers. The ribbon always adds a little whimsy and contrast!
Thanks so much for visiting today!
