The many perks...

of neutral ribbons :)

We added some neutral ribbon to our store - did you see?  They are timeless and just plain fun to create with!  Here are some cool things that you can do with twill:



And some fabulous things you can do with our white grosrrain:


Remember that when using Copic markers...the color changes with the different ribbons:


Please take note that Copics will bleed a bit on the grosgrain ribbon, but works beautifully with twill.  The white grosgrain ribbon stiffens when you color them with Copics - cool, but weird!  All types of ink worked with these ribbons.

If your ribbons are wrinkled...use a flat iron or regular iron to flatten them out.

Adhere them with:
  • vellum tape
  • tape runner
  • machine stitching
  • staples
  • brads
  • tape them around the back of your card
  • fabric glue
Our ribbon buckles work great with our ribbon:



And here is a card using our grosgrain ribbon :)

I used Copics to color the rainbow.  You can get the streaks by allowing one layer to dry, and then adding another color layer.

I hope that you will look at your ribbons a little differently.  Stamp on them like nobody's business!  :)

Enjoy your weekend
hugs!
