Ruffled Ribbon Border
by Cindy Lawrence
Create a pretty ruffled ribbon border around a die-cut shape.
- Die-cut stamped cardstock, any shape will work
- Scor-Tape™, or other strong adhesive
Begin with a die-cut shape already stamped, colored, and ready to go.
Flourishes Spring has Sprung set was used here.
Flip die-cut piece over, and adhere strong adhesive all around the edges.
Begin attaching ribbon to adhesive by creating small folds with your fingernail as you go.
You can create lots of tight ruffles by making your folds very close together, or you can create a looser ruffle by making your folds further apart.
Continue folding until you meet the end where you started. Tuck the two ends out of sight in the back.
Step 3 (Optional)
Adhere an identical die-cut shape to the back of the piece to give it some stability.
Flip it over and adhere to your card or other project.
Finish your card.
You can also created a simple ruffled border without using a die-cut shape. Simply adhere Scor-Tape™ in a straight line and ruffle using the same method as you would around a shape.
