Maggie Holmes Design Team : What A Gal

Hello again! I absolutely adore the prize ribbon designs that are found in Styleboard collection. It gives a very fun look to the collection. I thought it would be fun to create my own version of prize ribbon using the Styleboard die set - yes, with the bow die set!
This is a wafer die that you can use over & over and works with most die cutting platforms.

Here is the prize ribbon that we are making today. Cute, rite?

The above picture is to show you how I arranged my plates and papers that I rolled them onto my Big Shot die cut machine.  For the prize ribbon, we are using the base of the bow. You'll need 4 pieces to assemble. 

TIP: To secure the die onto the patterned paper, I used washi tape. Here I cut two papers at one go. Just be sure you roll it a couple of times before you remove the plates.

TIP: The papers will get stuck onto the die. What you have to do is to use a piercing tool / needle to  gently poke thru the little hole to release the papers.

Next, apply adhesive in the middle of the piece.

To form the prize ribbon. You'll need to arrange a 't' with the first two bows. Then, you overlap by crossing the third & the fourth pieces on each other.

Ta daa... here is the completed prize ribbon. I added the alphabet sticker 'K' in the middle and cut 3 pieces of paper ribbons and added them at the bottom of the rosette. 

Here is a look of my completed layout.

I really like the background build page. All I did was just to layer photo, patterned papers and some chipboard & vellum shapes.
