Ribbon Favorites

Hey there! It’s the weekend, but better yet I have a great ribbon favorite to share with you all. Nichole asked some of the DT and myself to share our favorite ribbon technique. Well, I was stumped for a few days, but finally decided on sharing how I like to layer my ribbons. Sometimes, I double ribbons and have two bows, while other times I may have a flat ribbon and a ruffled ribbon. Here, I decided to share double ruffled ribbon so you can see how I bunch the ribbon and create a wider ribbon effect. I even made a quick video on my ribbon ruffling technique.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the team’s ribbon favorites:

  3. Stamp sentiment; once in berry sorbet ink, then again slightly off in brown ink.
