Ribbon Treats for You Tutorial

**Winner of my Ribbon Treats Collage Sheet**
#7 Linda

Hello Friends!!
Happy Monday!!
Heather here and I have something super fun today that I would like to share with you.
It is a Halloween Treat for you to give to your friends!
It says "A Ribbon Treat for You!"
Can you imagine your friends face when they see their treat??  I think they will love it!  Of course you could always tie it to some chocolate :0)
I started out with a Collage sheet that I designed specifically to hold ribbon.

Before I actually cut out my images, I glued them to a piece of chipboard (they are already cut out below).

Here is a look at the back of the piece before I was finished cutting the pieces out.  I added some Art Glitter Glue to the back to hold on some Halloween paper.  I applied the paper (and know that the glue will hold all papers to the chipboard).
Once I got them all cut out, I inked the edges with Ranger's Walnut Stain.  I then added the Tombow foam tabs to the back of my text boxes.  The Tombow tabs are FABULOUS!!  Super easy to remove the paper backing!!  
I used some more goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon!
Once I placed my text boxes where I wanted them (which I ended up moving again after the  I added some of my favorite Orange leaves
and Deep Ivory 15mm Muberry Roses.  I adhered them to my image with Art Glitter glue.  I used one 20mm Orange Mulberry Rose
Next I added some dots of glue and then applied pumpkin glitter.
I added more glue to some of the black areas, and added black vinyl glitter.
Now on to adding our Ribbon treats!
I started off by adding the Orange Swirls ribbon!  You can decide how much ribbon your are willing to give, but I would suggest at least a yard of each piece.  I left a tail of ribbon to the left of my piece, then wrapped the ribbon around my spool.  Finished it by tying a bow.
Next I added the Black Netting.  Actually when I make my next one, I will use the black netting first then add the rest.  I started in the back with the black netting and wrapped it up and down my spool.  I made sure it ended in the back too.
Next I used Halloween Baker's Twine, and I did the same leaving a tail to the left, and wrapping it around (which held my black netting in place) and tied it in a bow.
I just LOVE it!!  Next I added some Orange Micro Gingham in the same manner at the other ribbons.
Next up, Black Micro Gingham!
I decided to add some Orange Seam Binding to the top and Black Seam Binding to the bottom of the spool!  I did punch a hole in the top of my piece and tied a bow with more of the  Black Seam Binding.  
Here are a few close ups.
Look at the yummy ribbons :0)

Fangtastic Ribbons for Halloween!
