I have use the ribbon card file to cut a card front, which I have then mounted on a plain card base made from matching paper. All the papers and sticker elements are from the Paradise Beach Collection from Echo Park Paper.
After I cut the base, I cut strips of paper to fit the ribbon weave holes and threaded the paper through. You want to cut the strips of paper slightly smaller than the holes to make it easy to thread, and then secure the ends underneath with a tiny dab of glue
I find with simple cards like this, the paper and design really shines on their own and you don’t need a lot of extra embellishments. The twine is always a nice touch and certainly adds an extra splash of summer color.
Here I have filled them with brightly colored sweets – perfect for a summer birthday party.
How about using them as cupcake holders – add a cocktail umbrella and you are set to go!
