Weaving Ribbon with Christine Meyer

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Halfway through our work week and I'm back to share a way to add some pretty texture to your card creations!  I thought it would be fun to try weaving for a background and I have to admit, I was beyond pleased with the end result!

I used the White Organdy Ribbon to create my background.  To create this effect I cut out my one inch frame (the aqua striped background) leaving a square in the center.  I then added adhesive all around the border and laid out my ribbon pieces diagonally.  I then slowly went through and weaved my rows for the other direction.

It kind of reminds me of the look of vellum!  And doing the weaving on the diagonal instead of straight across adds a different interest.

Love this look?  Next week I will be back with a less subtle, but still just as fun weaving project with our Delight Satin Edge Ribbon!  See you then!
