How to create perfectly diagonal ribbons on cards


Sometimes a design needs diagonally placed ribbons. Here is how to place them symmetrically.


Put Tear 'n Tape #138995 on the backside of two ribbons cut to the length you need.


Using Grid Paper #130148, place your layer diagonally on the BOLD CENTER LINE of the Grid Paper. Remove the Tear 'n Tape backing and lay the ribbon horizontally across the top corner of your layer. Line it up with the grid markings. Count the squares from the card tip to the edge of the ribbon. Lay the other ribbon on the bottom corner, counting up the same number of squares. Wrap the ribbon ends to the backside of the layer. Perfection!! I love Grid Paper and use it EVERYTIME I create! It has handy measurements, too.


This is the Background Bits HOST Stamp Set. Try this ribbon trick!
