DIY - RIBBON WITH A MESSAGE



What you'll need:


circle paper punch
card stock
stamp ink
alphabet stamp set
double sided tape 
ribbon
scissors

Instructions:






1. Once you've figured out what message you want to say, take your card stock and punch out the correct amount of circles you'll need to spell out your message.
2. Take your paper circles and stamp one letter on each circle.
3. Take your ribbon and calculate how much you'll need to go around your product and cut to the necessary length. 
4. Tie a bow with your ribbon and make sure that's it's on either the left or right side of your product.
5.  Take your double sized tape and stick one piece of tape for each letter. 
6. Stick your stamped circle in the correct order to spell out your message. 

Recommendations:
1. Make sure to let your circles dry out after you have stamped them.
2. The trick to using alphabet stamps is to not press hard when you stamp the paper.
3. Make sure you use a thick paper if you don't have card stock.

Alternatives:
1. Instead of using double sided tape, you can use a hot glue gun or crazy glue to attach your paper circles to your ribbon.
2. If you don't have an alphabet stamp set and you have nice handwriting you could handwrite your message instead.
