Mini Blooms Thank You - Ribbon Detail Tutorial
I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Birthdays and pondered. Then, it hit me. I pulled out my handy x-acto retractable knife and cut a slit in the fold of the card. The slit is just about the same width of the ribbon and is on the fold at the same height as the punched holes so the card can have the same ribbon detail on both sides of the card even with a fold.
To make the ribbon detail, cut about 13" of ribbon, start from the back and pull it evenly through the two holes. Wrap the ends around the side of the card going away from the center. Go through the slit on one side going front to back and wrap it around the right side. Bring the ribbon back through the same hole it started in from back to front and tie it around itself and trim the end. Does that make sense?
To clarify, take the piece of ribbon that came up through the left hole and thread it from front to back through the slit on the left side of the card at the fold. Turn the card over and take that ribbon from the back to the front through the same hole you started with - the left hole. Turn the card back to the front. Take the piece of ribbon and tie it around and trim. See how it looks above.
See below for how it looks on the back.
