Laying ribbon across a card front

I get quite a few emails and blog comments about how I lay my ribbon the front of a card. I find its the best way to get it to lay both straight and flat AND without a fussy bow..... a knot will do.
I hate that the video is strobing (due to my choice of busy background). Steven Spielberg I am NOT!

Had fun with my friend Beth today. Instead of rolling up our sleeves and making loads of cards, I spent an age going through lots of unwanted craft supplies with her (lucky Beth!) but we did manage to snick in a quick make

Also Geek Bug is here. I haven't had the time to ProMarker them but did resort to a digi splurge this evening with Beth

and a quick digi burst on another one of the Bugs.
I must share two cards Lynda has made, using some of the new bugs. I love her card pay her blog a visit, won't you?

Got a fun day planned for Wednesday..........Im venturing into Manchester again :)

I actually prefer knots to bows, so this suits me down to the ground! :)

Hi Kirsty! Well I never, I'd not (or should it be knot) thought about threading ribbon through a slit like this. Duh, sometimes I think my head's in the clouds! Thanks for the idea honey! Di x
