Ribbon ruffle

Im up late again. Gracie is shredding wet wipes as I clean my stamps. We are quite a pair :)

I made this little card tonight and I get a lot of questions about how I ruffle the ribbon so here goes:

After creating my card I place a 1/4" strip of scor-tape where I want my ribbon to go. I've used red liner tape, I just happened to grab scor-tape. I placed my ribbon down with an inch left for a tail and exposed about half of the tape. I gathered approximately 1/4 of an inch and stuck down the ribbon and repeated until the entire length was covered with 1/4 inch gathers. I secured the tails behind the card and placed a tag on the front.

Try it! Let me know how it works :)
Ready for ruffle
Strip of Scor-tape
Take approx 1/4" tucks and stick down to tape
Continue adding tucks or ruffels
Secure tails
Make any adjustments to get your ruffles even and in a mostly straight line :)


  1. Sorry for the edit guys but I had to change the order of the pics so it was a little easier to follow.
