HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

This is it, folks. My last Halloween post for 2018. I thought I’d end the Halloween season with another handmade card. I have done two Halloween cards using Tim Holtz Ephemera, so for this one, I wanted to change things up. About a month ago I was in Jo-Ann Fabrics and they were having a really great sale on their Halloween ribbons. Not knowing what I would do with them I stocked up on a few rolls anyway in several widths. I came across them again last week and realized I wanted to use them before the season was over. I decided to try my hand at a Halloween ribbon card. It’s very easy. I used a premade card background (5″ x 7″), 1/4″ wide double sided sticky tape and several rolls of ribbon in varying widths and patterns. I laid down the tape and worked my way row by row until I had covered the whole card, front, and back. In the end, to be safe I put the card thru my sewing machine to ensure if the ribbon frayed the stitch would catch it. As I final touch I added some 3D shimmer Halloween stickers I had in my stash.

I now have visions of book covers and Chrismas cards full of glitter made the same way.  I also noticed if I had left the center ribbons longer I could have tied the card shut as well. Just another idea. Really a fun way to use up those ribbon bits we have tucked away.

You can watch my process video here on my youtube channel: Halloween Ribbon Handmade Card

Here are some photos of the finished card to get those wheels churning:
