Ribbon Weaving for a Christmas Card


I have just created this woven ribbon card in Christmas colours after I was spurred on to make a Christmas Card by the lovely ladies at Dandie Crafts Treforest. You may have seen the card that I demoed in an earlier post. That one was in rich wines and creams, while this is in reds and greens for christmas.

Now, if you want to make a card like this you will need:

All products are available here at Craft Fairy
Forest Green 16mm satin ribbon
Red damask ribbon in 16mm
Old gold satin ribbon 6mm
Willow satin ribbon 9mm
Some guipure lace, I used circle and fan
a really large rose in red
Glue and foam pads
some card to make the base on which to showcase your creation.
A few red buttons

Start by cutting a piece of card that will be the right size for your ribbons. 
Stick a piece of double sided tape to the back of one side of the card.

Lay out your ribbons in your chosen pattern as seen in the picture below.




Now stick double sided tape to the two side of the card closest to the first. you will have to stick the tape over the first ribbon in the corners.


This is what it should now look like at the front.


Now add the last piece of tape and finish the weaving.

You can now stick the piece of weaving to your card and embellish with lace, a large flower and some cute buttons.
