The result is a beautiful, silky variegated color of ribbon.
Using some old lace and netting that I found at a thrift shop recently, I decided to make a pretty little circle doodad. I cut layers of circles and then found a Vintage Button for the center. Using a needle with a large eye, I threaded my silk ribbon.....
.....and tied up a pretty little bow to finish off my doodad.
Lovely, isn't it?
I added my doodad to my card front, the perfect finishing touch.
Front and center on a Vintage Labels stamped die on Kraft cardstock.
I also added some of the silky ribbon to a piece of Hawaiian Shores Saddle Stitched ribbon. Love the ruffly look.
And here's one more tip for you: Use Scor-Tape when adhering ribbon that does not wrap all the way around your card. It holds tight and seals off those cut edges.
