Faux Ribbon Technique

Thank you Julianne for showing us Divas this technique!

To make your faux ribbons you will need a variety of Big Shot embossing folders, and a variety of cardstock scraps or cut to varying widths. Here I used the chevron, argyle, stripe, and dotted folders from Stampin' Up!

Run each strip through the selected embossing folder.

To make the split tongue points, or whatever the technical name is, cut up middle of the short end of cardstock as deep as you want your points. Cut from outer corner in at a diagonal to end of your center cut from each corner. Or if your really clever you can use a square punch at an angle on the ends. But I always have trouble lining it up in the center of my paper.

Stamp sets used: Teeny Tiny Wishes, French Foliage

Thanks for stopping by. Happy stamping, Sandy
