A spring basket

Debra Burgin 1102 Spring basketIsn’t this a much prettier ribbon treatment than the one I showed you yesterday?  At Leadership Conference last month, Shelli Gardner, CEO of Stampin’ Up!, revealed her secret:  pull a thread from one end and push the ribbon the opposite direction.  I did that from both ends, since I’m not certain how much pulling that single thread (or perhaps a couple) can take.

A length of Sticky Strip across the card is the perfect no-mess adhesive.  Simply push the gathers into the strip.  It’s even possible to pull the ribbon off and reposition it, if necessary.  I left the ends loose and frayed for additional “shabby chic.”

This card makes me think of an Easter bonnet!  ETA:  I forgot to mention that this card was inspired by my stampin’ sister Cindy E at Stampin’ Addicts!

    I’ve always found pulling single threads to be very frustrating. Since home ec class in 7th grade many many moons ago, I’ve always hated it. Maybe you can teach me a better way??
