Gathered Ribbon Tutorial!!

Hello, it's Connie!! I have a super simple ribbon tutorial for you today - a Gathered Ribbon Tutorial!

To make the gathered ribbon, you will need some double sided sticky tape. Here I am using 3/4" scor-tape, and some 1" Spring Green Satin Ribbon with a Grosgrain edge.

Tear off a piece of tape the length that you need, and start adhering the ribbon to the tape in a random gathered line.

Here you can see the back of the ribbon once you are finished.

Here is what your final outcome will look like!

See! Told you it was super easy!

Now onto the rest of the deets of my card! The image is from Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Tulip Garden image. I stamped the image with the following steps: Step 1: So Saffron, Step 2: Apricot Appeal, Step 3: Pumpkin Pie, Step 4: Tangerine Tango. The green was stamped with Old olive.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a great week!
