Happy Monday! I’m excited to be here with you today to share this fun and fast ribbon technique with all of you. If you’re like me, your scrapbooking stash is full of a variety of ribbons and trim that you use regularly on your scrapbook layouts. I love finding new ways to use products like these, especially quick ideas I can use over and over to add a personal touch to my pages.
One way to add texture to your scrapbook layout is to use ribbon or trim to dress up a flower accent. I love how Jamie Harper did just that on the layout below. She cut out pieces of ribbon to create petals or leaves to complement the chipboard flower.
Play by Jamie Harper, as seen in the May/June 2012 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine, p. 98.
Cut out petals in various shapes to create your own unique look and to add fun textures to your layout.
Design Tip Use an antifraying treatment such as Dritz Fray Check to keep your petals from fraying.
Use this easy 10-minute trick for using ribbon on your next layout to create unique flower accents. I hope you’ll try this simple technique to dress up your next scrapbook page!
Have a wonderful day!
