Sketch 4 - Card #3
I conserved my ribbon by running a flat piece through the label tag and wrapped just the ends around the back instead. The ribbon knot is created using a much smaller length of ribbon tied just around the front piece. While this only saves about 4-5" of ribbon, when you are making 40 kits it adds up! If you are only making a few cards, its a great way to use up those small scraps of ribbons and fibers. Don't be afraid to mix and match either.
It's kind of funny but I used to laugh at my friends for never being able to throw anything away but I realize that I've become just like them!
