Ready to weave?

Are you ready for that promised ribbon weaving tutorial? This is the card I made using the weaved ribbon from my tutorial. The big flower is from my Le Jardin set (Lizzie Anne Designs). I colored it with my Copic markers, and the center has Crystal Effects. I also highlighted this with my clear Spica glitter pen, but it's difficult to see in the photo. The sentiment is from Celebration Sayings (LAD). The Swiss Dots Cuttlebug (Eclectic Paperie) layer is Berry Sorbet from PTI and both of the ribbon colors are from PTI as well.


I will give you the full recipe of the card, then you may scroll down for the tutorial.

Stamps: Le Jardin, Celebration Sayings (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Basic Black, Georgia Pacific White, Berry Sorbet
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Copic Sketch markers, Clear Spica Glitter pen
Accessories: Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, Scalloped Circle Nestabilites, Big Shot, Berry Sorbet & Sweet Blush 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon, Sweet Blush Twill Tape, Word Window & Small Oval punches (SU), Crystal Effects, Scor-Tape, Dotto, Stampin' Dimensionals, Glue Dots


Ribbon Weaving Tutorial

Supplies:
2 x 3¼ inch piece of card stock
3- 5 inch strips of 5/8 inch ribbon
5- 4 inch strips of 5/8 inch ribbon
¼ inch Scor-Tape (Red liner will work as well)
Dotto
Scissors

**Please note--You may use shorter strips of ribbon, but I like to have a little extra to hold onto. The size of your card stock may be adjusted to suit your project. Make adjustments as needed.



Step 1: Adhere a strip of ¼ inch Scor-Tape to upper edge (2 inch side), of card stock.


Step 2: Peel the liner, and apply the 5-inch strips of ribbon along the edge of your Scor-Tape.


Step 3: Adhere another strip of Scor-Tape along the full length of the right edge of card stock .


Step 4: Peel the liner, and apply the 4-inch strips of ribbon along the edge. (Be sure to keep the strips tight together).

Step 5: Turn the card stock over so that your shorter lengths of ribbon are on the left side, and apply Dotto to the lower edge of the card stock. (This temporary adhesive will help secure your long ribbon strips while you are weaving).


Step 6: Turn card stock over again, and apply a strip of Scor-Tape to the remaining 3 ¼ inch side of the card stock.

Step 7: Begin weaving ribbon. Secure the long lengths to the Dotto as you weave, and the short lengths to the Scor-Tape, peeling the liner as you go.


Step 8: Trim the ends of short ribbon lengths, then apply a strip of Scor-Tape to the remaining short side of the card stock.

Step 9: Secure the long ribbon strips to the Scor-Tape, and trim the ends.


Step 10: Your completed weaving.

I hope you have fun with this! If you decide to give this a try, feel free to leave a link here! :D

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!! Thanks for stopping by!!
