You know by now how I like finding new uses for loom bands, and not long ago I had tied them up into ribbon bows on these mini gift packages. On the following cards, they are back as ribbon bows but for just that extra interest I cut up a few more bands into bits and pieces for use as sprinkles on one of the cards.
These cards were easy to put together though sticking the little pieces took a while but nothing too time consuming. I also wrote my go-to puny sentiment which is another way of conveying a hello or birthday greeting. The stripe patterned cardstock was one I made by masking with washi tape and then smearing the open areas with a Pearlescent Orchid inkpad.
- Tie ribbon bows (see here for simple instructions), and cut up more bands into small pieces of various sizes.
- On each panel, draw a faint pencil line and write the sentiment with a black Touch marker. Erase pencil line.
- For the card on the left, adhere the bows and sprinkles in place. Cut a strip of patterned paper and adhere with a tape runner along the base of the panel. Adhere panel onto a card base.
- For the card on the right, use a pencil and a ruler to help mark out the spots before adhering the bows down. I used my trimmer to make a frame with the pink cardstock, making it a litter larger than the panel with the bows. The frame was popped up with foam tape. Adhere panel onto a card base.
