I know it comes easy to most you, but I am VERY ribbon challenged. Here is a new tip for me that I found while looking around this afternoon. Allee at this link http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/386028, had posted it back in 06, I think it was, so most of you probably already know about it. I knew how to make the plain ribbon with out the loops using this technique, but not a ribbon that had the loops on it. This is as good as learning some new things on how to use my Cricut. I did not follow her directions exactly, but the result was the same on front and back as hers was. When I started it, I just did what I thought was the way she said, but after rereading when I was getting ready to post this, I realized I did it differently, and it seems to me that it wasn't as tight a fit as doing it the other way. This little bow, I put on a picture that is going in my Mom's Christmas present. (I'll share that later) Yes I know I am still not done with it, and it is the day before the day before Christmas. But it is 1:40 AM I'm doing the best I can do :). This was the first bow I made, so I know I can only improve with practice, but I was pleased. Sounds like it doesn't take much to please me does it? Please visit her blog she has so many, many pretties to share. Now to bed.
