Blue Ribbon Worthy
Cue music for the trial and error video montage...
Let me just tell you, these suckers are easy to make... once you figure out the measurements for what you want these gems are cake to make. Figuring out the size of each little part is kind of a pain. The first one I made had a HUGE zigzag crinkly background thing and the medallion looked miniaturized. After a little editing and a ton of scrapbook paper to sort through, I found the perfect color combos for a few ribbons.
Now, I am by no means a stamper and definitely not a good stamper. I ended up with a pile of cute medallions with crappy stamp-jobs on them. Oi, what a head ache... Note to self, learn how to stamp. Better yet, outsource down the street to Denise aka the Pro-stamper who can put my stamping skills to shame. (Who would have though a piece of cut rubber and ink would be such a cumbersome task to undertake?!)
I present to you, my first batch of trial and error paper ribbons. Take that craft store chains, your $7 price tags can bite me. =P
