Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here. Today, I have a tool to show you that will quickly become your new favorite tool, seriously! I’ve been playing with the ribbon cutter and I’ve fallen in love. I’m sure you will too.
I have a huge stash of ribbon scraps in my drawer. I pulled out a LOT of ribbon scraps and played with the ribbon cutter for a long time. I learned a LOT while playing with the pile of ribbon. I learned that this ribbon cutter will cut most kinds of ribbon (including sequins, velvety, satin, silk, and grosgrain). I learned that you don’t want to cut ribbon that is cotton. Cotton ribbon will burn and turn black. By the end of my playing time I had a pile of ribbon scraps with perfectly seared edges on my desk.
I decided that I wanted to use this variety of ribbon scraps on a layout. To start my layout I grabbed my laser square and started lining up ribbon scraps across the middle of the page.
I continued lining up and adhering ribbon in the center of my layout. I can’t even tell you how thrilled I am with how this layout turned out. I think the variety of ribbon make such a great background.
I also used the laser square to make sure my photos and titles were straight on the layout as well.
I’ve done a similar technique with ribbon before but I had to stitch the ends of each ribbon so they wouldn’t fray. This time, I didn’t have to do any stitching to keep the ribbon from fraying, the Ribbon Cutter did all of that for me!
Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I hope you’ll add the Ribbon Cutter tool to your stash…you won’t be sorry!!
