Tips for adding ribbons to the custom cutouts.

Materials:

  • Ribbons, around 20 depending on size and shape of cutout.
  • Mod Podge (I used the Hard Coat version)
  • Brush or sponge brush
  • Sharp fresh exacto knife
  • Sawtooth picture hanging hooks (up to 3)

 

Step 1. Select and test ribbon layout. Trim off extra of those you’re sure you’ll use.

Step 2. Start attaching ribbons working from one end to the other. You can draw lines on the board to help with keeping the ribbons straight.

Step 3. Let ribbon dry, then add two top coats allowing it to dry in between. Let fully dry overnight.

Step 4. Once fully dry, flip over and start cutting off excess ribbon. A sharp knife will get it done faster with less force. 

Step 5. Attach hangers. I use 1 to 2 saw tooth hangers on the back making sure to attach at balance points. I used one on the front to attach the rosette to non permanently.
