ribbon favorites

Happy May everyone! It's the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge today and we are all sharing our favorite ribbon techniques with you.


The ribbon technique that I use is quick and easy and to show you how, I put together my first ever video tutorial. In the video, I also show how I stitch buttons to my projects. Also in the video, I think I talk to fast, ramble on a few times, the camera has a few issues with focusing, and please ignore the dryer running in the background...! I know I will get better at putting these videos together as I do more of them...

So there you have it :)


Make sure to stop by all of the senior design team members blogs to check out the techniques that they are sharing today: Nichole, Betsy, Dawn, Lisa, and Mish. Our guest designer Ashley Newell is also playing along!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
