TLC387 ~ Pleated or Ruched Ribbon ~ (7/23/12)

TLC387 ~ Pleated or Ruched Ribbon ~ (7/23/12)

Today we are pleating and ruching ribbon! For this challenge, please do not use ribbon that comes already pleated. We want to start with FLAT RIBBON and do the pleating/ruching ourselves!

There are several different ways to do this. In my three examples, I use Scor-Tape to hold my ribbon down, and in the newest sample linked below I tie Baker's Twine on top of that to help it stay in place.

Here is a link to the SCS Resources section with a tutorial on pleating using staples.

And the definition of "ruche" - a strip of pleated lace, net, muslin, or other material for trimming or finishing

My sample: FOREVER
Also see the attached thumbnails for examples already in my gallery.

TLC387 European Travel
Judy- thanks for the great challenge! I combined my wide pink gingham ribbon with some black and white ribbon for my pleated accent, and added a passport admittance stamp and the Tower of Pisa. Finished with some stitching, edging, and green gems. Here's European Travel

What a great challenge. It is kinda hard to see my pleated ribbon because I used it as an accent behind the doilies on my card. I'll definitely be trying this again. TLC387 Ruched Ribbon Sympathy Card by MariLynn - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
