Make Your Own Vellum Ribbon

Well asked to do a sample with the Christine Coleman stamp – I used the long border stamp and thought it would look good as a ribbon – so used a real soft pink embossing powder & with the help of the Tall story board and images from the Victorian Angels & Fairies Cd  the sample was made


Today`s Workshop is how to make the ribbon

1. Take a piece of parchment / vellum – I wipe with a static bag and then using a versamark inkpad stamp the border once – then lining it up repeat again – this is just done by eye but as the stamps are cut closely then it`s easy to do – sprinkle pale pink embossing powder over the ink and set with a heatgun – on parchment it will emboss quickly so don`t hold to close or even better emboss from underneath


2. Once embossed cut out around the pattern with decoupage snips – do this on both edges


3. I then edge the ribbon with Sakura gold pentouch – the 2mm one just by gently running the pen all around the edge –


Now that is your ribbon complete and you can use it in your project – as it is vellum I have used silicone glue to secure it and then added the roses to cover the glue

Alternative uses for the stamp – just cut 8 lengths and edge in the same way as above – place a small hole in the top and bottom of the stripes and I have used the circle stamp to act as cover up for the ends and added a tassel and beads to the bottom – be careful not to overweight it as you will lose the shape – and added a double bow to the top

I hope you have found this mini workshop useful

  4. Another fab idea Suzanne, I love parchment and although I haven’t any of Christine’s stamps I am sure I will have some that I can try your technique on.
    Keep giving us the inspiration
