Time for the FCCB Thursday Tutorial-Coloring ribbon and making paper bows

Hello everyone and Happy Holidays. This week the challenge at FFCB is "Rolling in Ribbon. I had two tutorials I wanted to share with you and couldn't decide which to post so you get two this week. The first is from a blog I love Blog Quick Quotes. Here you will find out how to make the Crinkled Ribbon we all love by using Hug Snug Seam Binding and Glimmer Mist. I am definitely ordering some of this to make my own colors for projects. Hug Snug Seam Binding can be found on Ebay and Amazon as well as other websites for around $10 you get 100 yards.

Then in the spirit of Christmas how would you like to make your own paper bows?
Last year I made a bunch of these with scraps and matching Cricut Cuts to decorate gift bags.

These are fun and simple to make so check out this

Hope you find one or both of these tutorials helpful. I hope you will join us this week for the "Rolling in Ribbon" Challenge. We would love to see your creations. Happy Craftin!
