One of the most popular items from the Styleboard collection is the craft die set shown below and I absolutely love seeing all of the cute paper bows everyone is making with it! But I also love when people take something like this and put it to use in a different and creative way! Jessy does just that today in her tutorial for making prize ribbons! The result is so darling and I can't wait to try it out myself!! Just think of all the possibilities and different combinations you can make!
Hello again! I absolutely adore the prize ribbon designs that are found in Styleboard collection. It gives a very fun look to the collection. I thought it would be fun to create my own version of prize ribbon using the Styleboard die set – yes, with the bow die set!
This is a wafer die that you can use over & over and works with most die cutting platforms.
Here is the cute little prize ribbon that we are making today.
The picture below shows you how I arranged my plates and papers that I rolled onto my Big Shot die cut machine. For the prize ribbon, we are using the base of the bow. You'll need 4 pieces to assemble.
TIP: To secure the die onto the patterned paper, I used washi tape. Here I cut two papers at one go. Just be sure you roll it a couple of times before you remove the plates.
TIP: The papers will get stuck onto the die. What you have to do is to use a piercing tool / needle to gently poke thru the little hole to release the papers.
Next, apply adhesive in the middle of the piece.
Fold each end inward to form a bow.
Here is what it will look like.
Next, snip a 'v' at each end with a precision scissors.
Here is what you will get.
To form the prize ribbon, you'll need to arrange a 't' with the first two bows. Then, you overlap by crossing the third & the fourth pieces on each other.
This is the completed prize ribbon. I added the alphabet sticker 'K' (my daughter’s initial) in the middle and cut 3 pieces of paper ribbons and added them at the bottom of the rosette.
Here is a look of my completed layout.
I really like the First Prize patterned paper. All I did was just to layer photo, patterned papers and some chipboard & vellum shapes. And just like that, you are done!
Once again, thank you for letting me share with you today! Happy crafting! Xoxo Jessy
