Ribbon weaving is fun for added interest and texture on cards, albums and more. Various colors and sizes can be coordinated with papers or painted surfaces that you may be applying the ribbons to.
Below, I used my electronic die cut machine to cut out a 5 x 7 rectangle with cut-out flourishes and an oval in the middle. My plan is to make this into a mini album cover when I get done with adding my ribbon and embellishments.
Below is a horizontal and vertical view of the same "fabric" made from woven ribbons.
The first layer is laid out vertically with sides touching.
Weave the horizontal ribbons under, over, under, over until you have a complete piece of what I call ribbon fabric.
Ruffled flowers are made by finger-pleating the ribbon as it is adhered to a 2" or 3" circle of cardstock.
Adhere the first ribbon layer to the outside edges; repeat with the second layer of ribbon but adhere around the inside of the first layer as shown. Finish by adhering a 3" scalloped paper circle to the center. I added a metal button for a final touch.
