Ruffled Ribbon Technique

Hi Stampers
I have had several people ask me how I applied the ribbon on my sympathy card from Nutrition Center Class. This is a tutorial on how I did this techinique.

First I cut a 3/8" strip off our Sizzix fabric adhesive sheets.

Then I applied the strip to the back of the ribbon.

I pulled about a 2" section the adhesive back so that I could apply the ribbon to the front of the card stock put left about a 1/4" hanging over the edge. The adhesive is very sticky. I only pull off about 2" at a time so that you don't get the sticky all over. Oh and if you don't have adhesive sheets snail works great too. Just apply the snail along the entire length of the ribbon.

Next I start making the loops.

The adhesive holds the loops once you make them.

Once you have used all the ribbon go back and cut off the overhanging piece of ribbon with scissors.

Then apply the card stock to the front of your sympathy card.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have questions. This is my first technique demonstration so any constructive criticism is welcome.
