Ribbon Weaving

I recently saw a beautiful card that was made using ribbon weaving.  I have since taught myself HOW to do the ribbon weaving, although I still haven't been able to recreate this exact card.  You can see the card and the supplies she used here.  I think it's absolutely gorgeous!!!

I bought all the supplies to recreate it....but am still trying to figure out how to make the heart out of my ribbon weaving.  And, then I have to figure out how she made it stand.  I'll keep working on that project.  :-)

So, here is what I have been busy doing for a few weeks, as I tried to get over the blasted cold that hit our house in February and wouldn't LEAVE!!  I felt that I needed to do something since I didn't have the energy to do much of anything else.  Hence, I wasn't making cards, either.






Here is where you can see the tutorial on how to do the ribbon weaving!

WARNING, they are very addicting!!!!  I have been experimenting with different widths, types of ribbon and even doing two at once.  I think the satin works the very best but some of the other ribbons work well if the width isn't too large.

Tomorrow, I'll share a card I made using one of the ribbons.  I am still hoping to sort of recreate the card that prompted me to start making these.

Have a Fantastic Day!!!

  5. Well, I figured out that the second HERE still had the same link...it has been fixed. So, if you click on the link that says 'here' is where you can find the tutorial, it will work now.
