love - making tassels!

Good morning.  
I am going to share a technique with you today that is with that stunning teal ribbon that is included in this months Creative Cafe Kit - Too Much Sun.

First lets look at the complete card.

First, I wrapped the entire length of ribbon around my three fingers.  

Tightened it towards the top and wrapped the orange metal wire around to keep it in place.  

Trimmed the opposite ends loops so they hang like a tassel and trimmed them to be even.  

Now, this may be too bulky for you.  It does stick out from the card quite a bit.  Keep this technique in mind for your next gift bag or for the next card that you hand deliver.  Layer those gorgeous Doodlebug papers to your liking.  I used some of my very old border punches for bit of character. See you next week!
