Disco Inferno!! (sorry, but you gotta follow burn baby burn with disco inferno! – I know, showing my age…)
I read a great little tut today on Scrapper’s Guide on Ribbon Wrapping:
but I feel like she left one more step off the tut…
I got through the steps she wrote -
cut a piece of ribbon just a teeny bit wider than what you’re wrapping it around (hint, it should be wider by how THICK you feel the ribbon is – felt would be thicker than satin ribbon),
but then I felt it needed more…
and ran it over the edge of the ribbon a few times, until I got this result:
Now look at the two different results:
I think the left (burned) end looks much more realistic! The width of the burned area should be wider the thicker the item you are wrapping AROUND is. Play around until you get a look you like. Burning is a great way to get better dimension on your work!
Now go wrap me something!
See you in the gallery….
