Have you been to the back of the Two Scrapbook Friends Store? A huge rack of ribbon on rolls! Wow! I love seeing what they have out and what's in the cool glass jars all over the store? There are treasures to be found! I buy lots and I buy often. So..that means I have tons of it that never seems to get on pages or little bits left over.
Today, I wanted to share with you a ribbon technique I used to create a sunshine element from a ribbon circle. It is deceptively complicated looking but in fact took very little time. and it helps use up all those little bits!
1 sheet yellow Bo Bunny Double Dot paper
5-7 pieces of yellow ribbon approximately 6-10 inches. This varies with how big your circle is and is up to you.
Fast drying glue
1. I cut a circle in a piece of Bo Bunny Double Dot Yellow. It should form a rim and be fairly narrow. Mine is approximately 1/2 and inch.
3. I then folded the ribbon pieces around the edges of half of the circle. I used my Beacons' 3 in 1 glue to do it quickly and with minimal fuss. I didn't follow a pattern really and alternated between thicker/thinner and patterns.
4. Afterwards I adhered the bling on each strand.
Here it is again!

Another layout I used a larger circle as a fringed frame.
Finally, a wreath element on this Christmas card.
I hope you'll dig into your stash of ribbon (I know you have one!) and give this a try. Til next time, keep doing what you love!
