Less is More is for Buttons and Ribbons. So I was thinking of somehow have a original idea for ribbon but failed so decided to use what I call flat bows and since they fit through normal post I made a couple of Christmas cards.
These are Stamping up baubles which come with a matching punch but the darn thing stuck which is a bit annoying cos I've really only used it a couple times to check that it worked. I'd seen this style of card last year so this was my take of it.
The swirl is Hero Arts and was in my Simon Says Stamps parcel, the sentiment is stamping up. Not too sure on the pearls I think they would be better down by my sentiment but the card stock didn't want me to do move them so I had to leave them where they are.
The bow starts off as 7cm piece and a piece of double sided tape is put in the middle.
You bring the ends to the middle and stick down.
Another piece of double sided tape is put over the join.
You then take another piece of ribbon and stick down half way down the bit of double sided tape and then wrap round the bow joining on the other side of tape.
I stick a strip of ribbon down on the the card then stick down the ribbon.
Hope that makes sense.
Well MIL has arrived safely not sure how much blogging I'll be able to do or even crafting since my hubby thinks entertaining her means taking her out everyday may have to see if I can direct them to a craft shop.
