Some Satin Dots Pleating

Hi Everyone, and happy Thursday to you all. Today is my very first post here at Really Reasonable Ribbon and although I wasn't going to start posting until February, I just couldn't wait to show you this new Satin Dots Ribbon from May Arts. It comes in a few MUST HAVE colors and it really can be used for so many things. Being 7/8" wide, the possibilities are endless.

I decided to pleat this wonderful ribbon and man oh man, I love the end result. The fan stamps are from Hearts in Touch and I used Rock Candy crackle paint on them to give some depth when I folded them.

Here she is.

Isn't this ribbon just gorgeous??? I love those dots, and it irons like a dream. Hmmmm flowers outta this ribbon would be simply divine don't ya think?

Every month I will be doing a tutorial here at Really Reasonable Ribbon, so if there are things you would love to see, leave me a comment and I'll see what i can do.

Thank you so very much for stopping by today. Every Thursday you will have a post from me and projects to see.

  4. Very nice, Erika. I will love seeing more of your work. I would never have thought to pleat ribbon in that way. It really looks special. Whoever receives that card will know there was a lot of extra care taken to make the card just for them.
