Grandma's Rocking Chair - August 25, 2013 Attaching Ribbon

Sorry I missed last week, the Weekend came and went so fast, getting ready for school to start, preparing for classes all of a sudden it Tuesday and I don't know where all the days went.  My Daughter has also suggested that I do some reviews, she says tell folks what you think about certain products, I think that is a very good idea.  So every other Grandma's Rocking Chair will be a review of certain products or stamp sets.  If you would like my personal opinion or my view on certain stamp sets or Stampin' Up! products just leave a comment on what you would like my opinion on.  For today we will go with another question from one of my customers.

Question for today: How do you attach ribbon?

There are a few ways I attach ribbon.  As most of you know I like to use Glue Dots for most things and with ribbon it is the same.  Though I only use glue dots when I wrap all the way around the card or layer, the tie or bow helps hold it on.

If I want to just attach a bow or a piece of ribbon I use Sticky Strip, just make sure that it doesn't hit the cardstock before you have it where you want it. Sticky Strip fits perfectly on the 1/4 ribbon and even on the wider ribbon you only need one strip.  I usually only use a small piece on a bow or do both ends and a small piece in the middle on longer pieces of ribbon.  One thing you have to do is be careful when taking off the red backing as it may pull the ribbon or not stick on it and come off.  I find that if you put it on and then rub it with a bone folder it is easier to take the red strip off.

You can use Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue, but as usual I find that messy and at times it leaks through the ribbon or makes it discolored and sticky.  So I usually Stick to Glue Dots or Sticky Strip.
