Grandma's Rocking Chair - October 13, 2013 - Review of 3/8 Ruffle Stretch Trim

I am going to be talking today about the 3/8 ruffle Stretch Trim.

Coastal Cabana 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim
I really like this ribbon, not only because it  stretches but that it is a great looking ribbon. I love to use it to give more dimension to a project.  The top is stretchy and the bottom is ruffled and it just looks great.

See how much dimension it gives the cards.  I love the look with the honeycomb Embossing folder almost looks like they are the same.

This Trim comes in 5 colors; Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush.  All the colors are 2013 -2015 In-Colors so this trim will be around for two years, which makes me happy as I will use it a lot during that time. If you haven't tried it you really should at least buy one roll and try it.  If you are like me after buying that one roll you will buy the rest.
Click here if you would like to purchase it.

Though I do have to say I have tried to tie it in a bow and I am not very satisfied with how it looks.  It either stretches to much and looks really tight or I don't get it tight enough and it just falls apart.  If anyone has done a successful bow and has any hints I would love to hear them.  I think if I can get a bow with the stretch on the top and the ruffle on the bottoms that it would be really a great look. as for now I just take a piece fold in half and then put a piece around the middle to form a fake bow.  Looks OK but not what I think it could look like if tied.

Hope you liked this review.  If you have anything you would like me to review or a stampingquestion please let me know. Either leave a comment or e-mail me at marysstamping at
