Hi everyone, Mary J here and a very happy Monday to you! I am here today with my All That Scraps DT Make It Monday post. Today I have a short tute on how I made my ruffle ribbon borders. First, here is my card (so you know what I'm talking about!) using newbie Sugarplums Cupcake Emma and sentiment from the AmyR Sweet Sentiments set...
And this is how I do it. First, I get some double sided tape and tear off a little more than I need for the length. I then turn it so the sticky side is up and tape down the ends with scotch tape to keep it in place...
Then I begin to stick down the ribbon, creating the ruffles as I go...
I use my other fingers to hold down the ruffles I'm creating as I go along...
Et voila, this is the full length...
I then carefully pick up the ribbon and remove the masking tape from each end. Then I remove the covering from the back of the tape...
Finally, I stick it down where I want to place it, taking the ends round the back of the cardstock for a neat finish. And that is it!
I hope you have a go - it is so quick and easy to do and gives a more interesting look!
July is all about the sweet treats and our favorite little characters are back having a sugar sweet time.
Trevor and Emma are ready for a party with their big cupcakes, and Lucy is getting in on the action with her yummy ice cream cone. Don't forget Beatrice who is dressed all up as an Ice Cream cone, she is so excited she is throwing sprinkles all around. Sweet Lolli Beatrice is adorable in her little dress enjoying a sweet lollipop.
All this and more will be in the store for purchase Thursday night, July 5th at 8 p.m. CST!

I live in Chicago, IL and I am happily married to my college sweetheart, Sam. We are both Registered Nurses and we have a son whom I am homeschooling. I discovered stamping and card making September 2011 and just fell in love with it!. Coloring stamped images, making cards, and playing with paper is my way of relaxing and de-stressing. My inspiration comes from stamp designers, the blogs I follow and of course the design teams I work with. I'm so blessed to work with the crafters whom I admired at the start and who will always be an inspiration to me.
Mae, we're so happy to have you and look forward to being inspired by your creativity!
