Another way with Ribbons ...

Hi Everybody,

I have shown you this card before but the main reason for showing it again is because I was asked by people new to card making how to do the ribbon loops

So here is another video on the simple way to add ribbons other than in a bow ... a must for those who hate to tie bows

Whichever way you decide to add the ribbon it will look just as pretty

In the lilac card I have used a diamanté buckle but in the blue card I have only added a diamanté and pearls centre.

And you can add as many loops to your design as you wish and make them what ever size you like too.

You could also mix and match ribbons instead of using all the same one and that would give you the chance to use up any left over pieces you may have in your "Stash"

You can add the loops with or without the tails for another look and then just glue them in place.

I use a hot glue gun as it gives a really strong bond and I am not worried that the bows, flowers, embellishments of loops will fall off.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  19. I really need to try this bow technique...it turned out so nice
    Thank you Christina

  20. Why is it that the simple ideas are the best? This is just so easy yet, gives such beautiful results & to be honest I prefer it, bows have there place but these turn a beautiful card - & you certainly had some beautiful cards to show - into stylish cards.
    Also it is a great style for a more sombre occasion card, where flashy bows would be out of place. So THANK YOU for sharing. So few comments, which is a shame surely everyone didn't know how to make these? I certainly didn't.....
