Target Tuesday Congrats


I went over to Fab Moxie World this evening for a little inspiration and wasn't let down. I checked out this week's Target Tuesday image (above) and had an idea for some pleated ribbon I knew I had on hand.


I took the ribbon and played with it curling it in my hand until I had the shape I wanted. This naturally curves so it was easy to form. I then used mini glue dots to make the ribbon stick to itself and then some more on the back to have it stick to the card front. A big button center hides the start of the ribbon and allows for a nice thick glue dot to be added in helping to hold it all together.

I then used bakers twine under the sentiment. In order to save material I cut each piece to length and then applied lines of adhesive to the back. After securing the first line the rest are easy to stack right up against each other. You can then apply another line of adhesive over the top to make sure they are secure once you attach to the card base.

All paper, ink, and stamps by Stampin' Up! Card measures at 8 1/4" x 3 1/2"
