In this video I’ll show you 3 Easy Ways to Add Ribbon to your Cards:

  1. Flat across adds no bulk! Perfect for a wide ribbon or ribbon that has an obvious front/back.
  2. Add a faux knot – adds less bulk to your cards and is easier to tie.
  3. Wrap your ribbon all the way around and tie it in a knot.

All easy ways to add ribbon to your cards!

Of course, you can also use your ribbon to tie bows, but I put that in the harder category for another day.
