I'm going to make about 30-50 of these suckers to hang around the house and outside. This is really easy, if you have some patience. I do - only because it's perfect procrastination from cleaning.
I have a circle punch that I bought from Michaels a while ago. I'm not one of those "scrapbooking people" - I just "needed" a circle punch for some reason. It looks like this:
That's not mine - I stole it from the Gadbois Family.
So how did I make these? They were easy.
I cut 2 1/2 foot long pieces of ribbon (I used some from my never ending stash). Most ribbon roles are 10 yards - so you'd get about 12 pieces out of one roll if you use 2 1/2 feet. So use that to determine how much ribbon you need.
Then I dropped $3 on Cape Cod Colored Cardstock at Michaels. There's 50 pieces in that pack and I can get 12 circles per sheet.
So I taped up some of my 2 1/2 foot long ribbon pieces and just scotch taped 6 circles on each strand. Voila. I am done. The weight of the cardstock weighs down the ribbon nicely.
Since I had everything except the cardstock, my out of pocket cost was $3. If you want to create this, you'll have to buy some cardstock, some rolls of ribbon (.50 - $1.00 each roll), a punch (about $14 at Michaels - but buy on sale or with a coupon), & scotch tape.
