TEACHING Tuesday-Feb 12

Lisa has a great technique for us to try today! This is something I've never done, but I am willing to try!!!

~~~
I love adding texture to my pages and ribbon is just one of the many great products that I love to use. But sometimes it just feels too flat to me so using my sewing machine I sew the ribbon on, pleating it as I go. I love the extra dimension the pleats add to a page.If you don't have a sewing machine, you can achieve the same look by using glue dots and placing them between the pleats to hold them in place.
~~~

Why don't you try it, or if you HAVE tried it, leave a link to where we can see some ideas of pleated ribbon! We'd love to see it!!!
