Hi there! I’m Jen Shears, Prima Ribbonista from May Arts Ribbon, and I’m so excited to be sharing on the CK blog today! I’ve got a couple of tips to share with you today on how to use your ribbons in some fun ways.
Wish Big by Jen Shears for May Arts Ribbon and Creating Keepsakes. May Arts ribbons used: 1.5” white satin pleats (379-15-01), 5/8” pink sheer ruffle edge (350-58-17), 1.5” pink/white grosgrain stripes (RG17).
Besides the sweet pictures of my daughter, you may have noticed the ribbon. There is a lot of it! On this “Wish Big” layout I’ve used three different May Arts ribbons. I love the detail they add without being too distracting!
One great thing about ribbon is that by layering it, you open up all kinds of possible combinations. You can create a lot of texture, often without adding much bulk. I’ve lightly tacked these two ribbons in place before machine stitching.
Here’s a close up of how that ribbon looks layered and pleated.
