Magazine Inspired Card by Grace

Friday, October 10, 2014

Hi there ribbon friends. I am a big magazine reader. I love grabbing information, recipes, ideas and of course inspiration from the pages of lifestyle magazines. While browsing through an issue of HGTV magazine, I was stopped in my tracks with the photo of a cool door. As I studied the door, I noticed that the diamond design can easily be replicated with ribbons. Read on to see how I incorporated the design onto a thank you card.


1. For my square card, I cut out a 4 ½” square piece of white paper. I added some dazzle ribbon strips diagonally onto the paper. 

2. Next, I cut the square into four smaller pieces. 

3. Then I turned each square till I got a design that I was happy with. 

4. Then I adhered the blocks onto the center of a 5” square card. I then added a tiny strip of dark purple cardstock, a tied ribbon from more dazzle ribbon and two die cut tabs where I handwrote my sentiment. 

Here’s the finished card…

I used very minimal decoration on this card so that the eye can focus on the cool design created by the ribbon. 
I hope this inspires you to use some ribbon to create some cool geometric shapes for your next paper crafting project.

Happy Creating,
Supplies Used:
Dazzle Dotribbon 3/8”, Ribbons Unlimited Inc.
