Faux Ribbon

These are a couple of the pages that I will be making with my scrapbook gals this Friday. It is using the new set we got for (FREE) at convention- Inspired by nature. For the faux ribbon technique I took two strips of 12 x 12 paper at 1 1/2 " and wet them while folding them back and forth. I then laid them in the sun to dry. I put a strip of sticky tape across my paper and laid the ribbon across the paper while folding it back every so often. I like how it turned out- you could even rub a little creamy caramel along it to give it a even more worn look.

The leaves are stamped in versMark and the flowers are in craft white. TFL! Have a great Thursday- I will be busy today making 80 baby shower invites!
