Tweet Card and Ribbon technique


I am lovin' me some Tweety Stamps! SO I made yet another card from my stamp set. I am planning on buying more soon I am sure! I used the ribbon technique I have used before so I could make a pic tutorial on it. I have had some requests for it.
This is the one with glue, but I use staples too and love the affect!

Firts you tack down the base piece so nothing shifts around.
Then you fold the ribbon and glue it, then fold over on the glue

And continue folding in a random pattern back and forth trying to break it up once in a while gluing the ribbon going down every 5 or 6 folds
The trim the edges and you see above the finished product!
