Ribbon Frame TECHNIQUE!

I have a cool technique for you today:


ribbon of choice (1/4" width is big enough yet will not overwhelm IMO)
craft knife
ruler, pencil


1) Make light pencil marks on back of your panel in an X shape 
from corner to corner for square frame

2) Determine how big you want the frame to be and measure toward 
center from each corner to center it. Make a light mark THE WIDTH 
OF YOUR RIBBON and cut just as wide as your ribbon

3) Insert ribbon piece from back side and tie a knot before 
running ribbon back on each side. Tape ribbon pieces behind 

I used stamps by Hero Arts and color by Copics. I punched each corner but added no other decorations. For my card I measured one inch in from the corners but you could make it bigger or smaller if you like. Keeping your slit the same size as your 
ribbon ensures there will be no gaps when done.

This is how my card turned out:

Thanks for stopping by.  I would love to hear how yours came out.

I saw the article showing how to do this in Scrap & Stamp Arts and had to try it as well. Really a cool look and I love your beautiful ribbon frame around the gorgeous tulip you colored.
