Creating something "trendy" with something you already own!

My favorite is the paper ribbon. Bazzil has “Just the Edge” card stock strips and there is Paper frills by by doodle bug but at $10 a pop it can get pricey especially when you can custom make your own in any color that you want for pennies! Here’s how:
Take decorative edge scissors (everything comes back around doesn’t it, I bet your glad you kept them…or you kicking yourself for purging them from your stash when they became passe) and cut long strips of paper or card stock. Use hand punches to make them “lacy” if desired. Voila paper ribbon! What a great add on to a page or a card!!!!
