Technique Tuesday with Kat Glossop

Ribbon Inchies

I'm not a ribbon person. Well, actually, I love buying it, and have way too much of it, but I just have no idea how to use it! Over the years I've amassed quite a collection, so today I thought I'd have a go at using some of it.

1. Grab some inchie squares, or you can make your own.

2. Cut up some small strips of ribbon just over an inch long.

3. Adhere the ribbon strips to the inchies with tape or glue, being sure to wrap the ends around the back. I found staggering the strips prevented a bulk at one end as each is overlapped with the previous.

4. Finally adhere them to your page - I've spread mine over this page, but you could also group them all together for an interesting, textured mat below a photo.
Thanks so much Kat. These are cute and add great texture and dimension to your layout!
