Hey ScrapbookSteals.com fans, Katrina here with a fun little tool that I got to use for my design team assignment. It’s the Sew Ribbon tool from We R Memory Keepers.

These are nifty little gadgets that come in a variety of styles that you can use. I used two for my project today, the Flower and Scallop. I actually had the Scallop in my stash of tools, so I had a pretty good idea of how these work. I also got the Sew Ribbon Purple and Violet ribbon packs.

On my first project I wanted to use the Flower tool. I used it to “cross-stitch” and this particular punch is just about like that, except you are using ribbon to stitch with.

The ombre trend (or graduation in color) is one of the hot trends right now, The ribbon packs are perfect to try this with. The tool is easy to line up if you just watch carefully and take your time. This is such a simple card to make, but packs a punch with the variation of color. I added a punched border strip with ribbon, a phrase sticker, and some butterflies I hand cut out of Little Yellow Bicycle Elizabeth Park paper I had.

I wanted to show these would also work on a layout. I used the Scallop tool for this one. I pulled out my Studio Calico Heyday collection (which I got on ScrapbookSteals and is available in the archive!) and got to work. I decided on my first couple of layers so I would know where I wanted to place my punch. Then I punched my holes and sewed my ribbon in place as the first step of my layout.

I added a small bow at the bottom because, well, I like bows! This ribbon is from my stash. It was a little wide by a smidge, but it worked.

That’s all from me today and this is one of the last times I will be on the blog. I have had SO MUCH fun working with Kristy, Brittany, Regina, Kerys and the entire ScrapbookSteals.com team.

Hey everyone!  Roree here, and today I have some cards to share with you that I created with the We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon.  This is a really fun and easy tool to use and it is perfect for cards (which I love to make.)

First off are a couple of cards I made using the Sew Ribbon Weave.

I created a stem for the flower using the Sew Ribbon Green Ribbon. I added a few brads in the spaces between the ribbon, looped a piece of ribbon, and tucked it behind the laced ribbon for a leaf.

Using the same Sew Ribbon Weave, I made a quick and easy card with a rainbow of ribbon-stitched lines.

This card ‘pops’ with all of the rows of colorful ribbon.

For the next card, I used the Sew Ribbon Shoelace.

I made a frame around my card with the orange ribbon. To create the frame, I place the Sew Ribbon along the top and bottom of the card and punched. For the sides, I flipped the paper over to punch. It kept the ribbon slanting in the same direction.

For the next two cards I used the Sew Ribbon Leaf.  This one was my favorite!

For the first card, I created a patterned background with the aqua ribbon. I punched two rows together, and I added some large brads to the center of each pair.

I really love how this one turned out!

Here is my last card:

Instead of starting and stopping the threading at the edges, I started threading the ribbon at the inside from the front, reached it around the back, and finished threading it on the other side. This allowed me to finish by tying the ends together in a bow.

It seems like the options are endless with these fun tools, and I can’t wait to try it out on more projects.  Thanks so much for letting me share my cards with you today.  Have a great day!
