My blogging time has been nonexistent lately! I finally am getting a chance to post the instructions for the woven ribbon frame I made using the pretty Shimmer Ribbon Pack --a Stampin' Up Salabration freebie.
Also I chose to use the same color of cardstock as the main ribbon so if there are tiny gaps in the weaving the background color matches.
This project actually comes together fairly quickly and is really really striking as a decor piece.
1. Begin with 5-1/4" X 6-3/4 piece of cardstock. Cut an aperture with 1-1/8" border. To do this place the cardstock in the trimmer lining up at the 1-1/8" mark on the right.
2. On the back side tape ribbons that are long enough to cover the length of the frame plus a bit to wrap to the back at the bottom edge. The ribbons I used are approximately 8-3/4" and 2-1/4". (You can see that I did not measure these exactly!) Tape three long, seven short, and three long. Also tape seven short ribbons to the bottom rung of the frame.
