I have seen these curled ribbons in little girl's hair bows and wondered how they kept the curl. After a bit of research I found out the ribbons are actually heated to make the curl permanent. Check out the how-to! So I started to include these adorable ribbons on my scrapbook layouts.
For this layout, I began with a yellow sheet of cardstock and began playing around with the paint to create a dry brush and splatter frame for the photo. To do this I cut a 6X8 piece of cardstock to create a mask and adhered it to the paper where the photo would reside. I took a dry brush and painted around the cardstock and splattered the paint in different ways until I loved how it looked. I waited until it was dry and removed the cardstock mask.
I placed my photo and played with the ribbons until I was happy with their placement. I used glue dots to adhere the thicker ribbons and fiber glue to adhere the thin yellow ribbon. I place the dots and glue about every inch or so along the ribbon and was sure to place the adhesive directly onto the surface and pressed it firmly onto the layout.
I created the journaling square for this layout by hand stitching lines on vellum and writing with a permanent pen. I hope this idea inspires you to create some Curly-Q ribbon of your own and work it into your next layout or papercrafting project!
