Using Ribbon Scraps
After accumulating a huge number of small scraps of ribbon, I decided to use a bunch on some easy cards. I believe this idea first came to me from the Hero Arts catalog...it's a technique the folks at Hero Arts use frequently. I adore their catalog as it's full of fun ideas like this.
I sorted the scraps by color, then used either a monochromatic scheme or mixed and matched. The sentiments on all five cards are from Hero Arts as well.
I made about a dozen cards total (duplicates of these) and slashed my small-scrap ribbon stash by about half. These went together very quickly, too.
I used a coordinating colored pen to doodle a border around each sentiment since they looked a bit plain without matting.
Hope you enjoy these!
