This card, from the Stampin’ Addicts blog hop of a couple of weeks ago, features 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon woven through a strip created with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch. It’s a simple thing: just carefully cut a slit with the Hobby Blade vertically between pairs of dots. Leaving the ribbon on the spool, wrap a bit of scotch tape around the end for stability, then weave it up and down through the slits. Adhere and trim, then use the ribbon on your project.
I like this embellishment because it reminds me of some of the summer dresses from my youth. I was big on making a basic dress and changing the accessories.
So I recently ran across this picture of me and my date leaving for Homecoming Dance. Can you say 1970s? My dress matched our refrigerator, I’m just saying. Anyway, I think I made a kind of loose belt in the manner of the trim on this card.
I hope I didn’t ruin this for you!
