411 SSC 200








Supplies: Cardstock: Crushed Curry, Not Quite Navy 'Patterns' DSP. Rub-ons: 'Fashion District'.Ribbon: 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain 'Crushed Curry'. Punch: 'Scallop Trim Border'.Embellishments: Trinket Key, Corduroy 'Summer Sun' and 'Daffodil Delight' brads.Misc: Sticky Pages, Heat Embossing tool, Sizzix Circle #2.
This was fun because I tried a technique I hadn't ever tried before. Did you know that if you use a heat tool you can crumple the ribbon? It works best with satin.....but has some interesting effects on other kinds as well. Can't wait to try it on some other projects. Thanks for the challenge 411!
To make a flower: Cut a circle of Sticky Pages (I used the Sizzix Circle die #2...the 2nd smallest). Take the 'red' side off. Cut about a 12" piece of ribbon. Each inch cut a slice about 3/4 of the way across the ribbon leaving one side in-tact. Holding the cut side out....start circling the sticky piece from the outside in. When you get to the middle you may have to cut to fit. I love this technique.




Thanks for stopping....any questions please ask! I will share....
