Good morning Blog Friends!
For this month's Design Team Projects for Fantastic Ribbons we were asked to create projects with bows. I love ribbons and bows on cards, so I chose to make three cards with different bows.
Most of us use ribbons on our cards..some of us all of the time, others less often. I think a bow, either big and bold or small and simple can really give cards that finishing touch and sometimes give them that 'wow!' factor.
I had some lovely red ribbons to work with, so with it being the 'Month of Love', I have made some cards with romance in mind!
For my first card I made a bow by gathering one length of ribbon in folds all meeting in the middle and secured with a brad..this is much like you would make a bow for a gift. This particular ribbon is also wired, which makes it easy to shape as you like.The brad is hidden with a glittered 3D foam heart.
For second card I used the same ribbon, but this time made a double bow by using two lengths of ribbon and tying them together at the same time. Double bows have to be my favourite style tying a ribbon.
Finally I used a heart motif ribbon, folded outwards from the middle each side, secured with extra strong tape and finished off in the centre with a button.
So come on, get out those ribbons and start tying...even your little off cuts can be tied in the middle to make a simple little bow!
