Unicorn Wishes and Curly Ribbon Dreams

Hello friends and happy Monday to you! Linsey here and today I have a sweet little card to share and a fun ribbon technique that you might want to try! It is often referred to as making curly/corky or corkscrew ribbon--and guess what? It is so easy! Here's my card and I hope it adds a bit of sparkle and magic to your day!
Now, here's the super simple steps to making your own corkscrew ribbon strips...
First, pick your ribbon. I used this gorgeous Hyacinth Satin with Grosgrain Edge. Take a wooden rod or wooden spoons and use the handles to wrap your ribbon around, securing with a clothes pin at both ends. Then bake in a preheated 275 degree oven for 35 minutes (longer for thicker ribbon). Finally, spray lightly with spray starch while still wrapped and let cool.
Now unwrap and enjoy the all the fun of corkscrew ribbon!!!
Easy, right? I told you so! Just imagine all the things you can make using fun corky ribbon and get curling!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy crafting!
