How To Make A Chipboard Ribbon

June 8, 2009

Here is a picture of the ribbon on a layout
I start by using a piece of raw chipboard and drawing a ribbon on it like this...

Then I cut it out using an exacto knife or scissors (if they will cut through it!) It doesn't have to be perfect as we will be sanding it in a little bit.

Next, find a piece of coordinating paper with your layout and glue the ribbon, right side down on it like this....

Now cut it out, getting as close to the chipboard as you can. It makes sanding a little easier. Your sanded piece should look like this...
Next, I inked the ribbon and put bends in it to make it look like its waving.

And this is your finished ribbon!

Here is the layout I did using this ribbon....

Thanks for dropping by and stop back real soon!
