Ways to Use It Challnege on NMBS

NMBS Challenge #30
Good Sunday morning everyone, this week's challenge is a Ways to Use It Challenge. SU! has so many sizes, styles and colors of ribbon, so I thought it would be great to showcase some of the different ways to use it. The challenge this week is to make a card using Black, White and only one other color cardstock and use ribbon in a different way other than tying a bow or knot.

My sample shows a way of using ribbon for the center of the flowers. This idea came from Tammy, when she presented this at our last downline meeting for a 3 minute demo, but it really doesn't take 3 minutes to make these.

To make the ribbon centers: take a 5" piece of ribbon, tie a knot in the center of the ribbon. Punch a hole in the center of your cut out flower and thread both ends through the hole, once the knot is in the center, fold back the ends to form leaves. I used glue dots to secure the flower to my card.
Stamps: Doodle This, Yummy (New SAB)
Paper: Black, White, Baja Breeze
Ink: Black
Access: 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Glue Dots
Tools: Ticket Corner Punch, 1/8" Hole Punch

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
