I selected these Hampton Art/Doodlebug stamp seals- so cute! They are perfect to use for sentiment backgrounds for cards and make great journal spot for scrapbook pages. I used the Scor-pal tool to create some easy paper ribbon accents and use the seals in the middle. You can check out the tutorial on making the ribbon pleat and contest details on Scor-pal's blog.
Supplies: Hampton Art Doodlebug Journal Seals #IC0159, Colorbox inks- Limeade, Swimming Pool
My Mind's Eye pattern paper, Lifestyle Crafts Penguin Die
a) Score a 12 x 1 in pattern paper at 1.5, 2, 3, 3.5, 4.5, 5, 7, 7.5, 8.5, 9, 10, 10.5 inches as shown:
b) Starting from the left edge, fold pleats starting with a valley fold until you reach the 5 inch score line. Starting at the 7 inch score line, fold pleats starting with a mountain fold until you reach the end. You should have a pleated ribbon with a 2 inch wide center which is the perfect size to fit one of the stamp seals.
c) Unfold your ribbon pleats and place a little piece of Scor-tape in the 1/2 inch intervals and then refold to secure the pleats together. Cut a 'v' at the ends. The ends will curl up a bit until you glue the ribbon permanently to your project. On my card, I matted the ribbon on a slightly larger rectangle pattern paper.
d) To mass produce pleated ribbons, score a 12 x 12 pattern paper first, then apply Scor-tape down the 1/2 intervals. Cut ribbon widths as you desire and you have them ready as needed!
