Pleated Ribbon Tutorial for the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog....


Good morning all....It's my turn to post a tutorial for the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog today, this is not something I have done before and took me many hours to work out what to do but decided in the end to go with Pleated Ribbon.

***************************

Hiya...It's Wendy here with my first tutorial Pleated Ribbons, feeling a little nervous, so be kind....

 I  am going to share with you how I pleated my ribbon on this card which I made for our last challenge Ribbons.

  

You will need
 Card /Paper or whatever you want to pleat your ribbon onto
Ribbon
Double sided tape
Glue Dots


1. Start by adding a strip of double sided tape on your project where you want your ribbon to go. I have use the red Super Sticky tape...make sure the tape goes end to end or even wrap around the sides to help hold the ribbon on the back.


2. Before starting to pleat my ribbon I left enough straight which is where I fixed my flower later... a bow would look too. I left my ribbon on the spool so I didn't cut of too much or to little.


3. Then I begun folding the ribbon and tacking down it down in place changing the directions of the folds to give different pleats...You could do the folds straight and of even lengths if you wish. When I reached the end I cut the ribbon from the spool leaving a little to wrap behind my card and fix with some tape.


4. Then I added glue dots to the peaks of ribbon to hold them down and fixed my flower to the part I left straight.


And here's my finished card, love the texture this pleated ribbon technique creates.

This little cutie is Maisy from the fabulous Daisy & Friends CD ROM, the gingham backing paper is  also from the CD ROM...There are so many adorable images/papers and so much more on this CD ROM and really great value at £9.99 and free postage and packing on all orders over £9 at Joanna Sheen.

Hope you have enjoyed my tutorial, would love to know what you think. It would be great to see your pleated ribbons and how you do it, why not join in our challenge this fortnight Coffee and Cream...Don't forget that if you want to be in with a chance of winning the £15 Random prize you must use a Joanna Sheen product in your project...Good luck.

Thanks for stopping by
