Adding Ribbon to DIY Greeting Cards and More
Chances are, you have a bit of ribbon laying around. Why not add them to your projects to spruce them up a touch more? Adding an easy-to-make bow to a greeting card or layout is an easy way to show you put a little extra thought into the finished project. Not only will the bow look sweet, but your project will look fantastic.
Glitter is often a love-hate topic. Some people just love it, and others prefer not to use it. I happen to love glitter. Adding a little bit of glitter to any project adds just the right amount of shine and sparkle. You can glitter embellish more than just cards and scrapbook layouts, too. Try sprucing up some of your home decor items with a fun glitter embellishment, as well.
