Ribbons and bows are a great way to bring a variety of flavors to handmade cards. They enhance any style: cute, elegant, romantic, vintage, simple–whatever you like to make. Stampin' Up! has such a great variety of colors and styles of ribbons, you're sure to find something to go with any project.
I've found that some of my customers don't like to use ribbons because they have a hard time getting them to look good. Here's a video tutorial I did recently demonstrating a ribbon-tying tip that I learned from my upline when I first started stamping almost 3 years ago.
As you've probably noticed, I make very few cards without ribbons, and this technique has been a great help to me! Give it a try, and let me know if it helps you add ribbons and bows to your projects quickly and easily.
If you'd like more videos on ribbon tying techniques, be sure to leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
