Today's post features an easy technique for creating faux ribbon for your handmade cards. This was one of the very first techniques that I learned when I first began my journey with paper crafting and cardmaking. On a recent Facebook live, I demonstrated this technique and found that several viewers had never tried or seen this technique. This led me to take a clip from the video and share it with all my viewers.
Let's take a look at this simple technique to create faux ribbon using a Bone Folder  and some cardstock strips.
-Strips of cardstock should be cut 3/8 to 5/8 for best results to create the faux ribbon.
-Run the side edge of the Bone Folder  along the cardstock strip at least twice.
-Separate the layers slowly and carefully.
-Use Mini Glue Dots  to make the bow.
-Try this technique on a larger piece of cardstock to create a fun textured layer for your handmade cards.
This card was made with minimal supplies including stamps, ink, and paper. For cardmaking and paper crafting, basic tools/supplies are also needed which include Paper Trimmer , Bone Folder , Paper Snips , and adhesives such as Multipurpose Liquid Glue  and Mini Glue Dots .
