DIY WEDDING AWARD RIBBONS
– After a lot of online searching, I found a great company called Ribbons Galore that allowed me to customize the color, cut, and design of each ribbon. Originally I thought I would hand calligraphy the award name on each ribbon, but after plenty of trial and error, every kind of ink and paint I used bled into the ribbon. My whole goal after all was to make these DIY projects easy, and it was just getting way too complicated. So…
– I used the Cricut Explore Air Wireless Cutting Machine. I fit a piece of plain white sticker paper over each ribbon to determine what size I needed, chose a fun, all-caps font for the design, and watched as the printer precision cut my design into each sticker. All I had to do was peel away the sticker, and the precision cut words were left on the award ribbon.
– As I say in the main post, I loved using the Cricut Explore Air Wireless Cutting Machine, but if you don’t feel like investing in it, Michael’s has an entire aisle filled with scrapbooking sticker letters that you could use.
