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!!!
