In loving memory of Christy Riopel – here is a blog post from Feb 2013 that was featured on our blog.  It is written in Christy’s words.


Making a Ribbon Mat for Your Page

I love the texture of ribbons and I am always looking for a new way to use it on my page. In this layout I created a mat with pieces of May Arts ribbons.

I started with Be Creative Sookwang double sided tape, a big pile of awesome May Arts ribbon and a piece of scrap chipboard.

I then put two strips of tape down each side of the chipboard.

I cut several strips of ribbon just a bit longer then the chipboard.

I attached the strips to the tape on one side. Wrapped it around the front and then attached it to the other side.

I added some sheer ribbons and smaller ribbons over top of the first layer to make it even more textured.

My finished mat was then beautiful and ready to attach to my page.

Beautiful, tactile and easy to create! Enjoy!




We miss you Christy – everyday.
