For this woven Vintage Ribbon Scrap booking Cover Craft Project You Will Need:
Scissors or pinking sheers
The first step is to buy Vintage Ribbons. I find quite a selection often at antique stores as well as flea markets. I always end up looking for vintage velvet ribbons in black or brown. They seem so timeless!
If you cannot find vintage velvet ribbon, then try just buying some new velvet ribbon at your local craft store.
Unroll your Vintage Ribbon and start cutting out strips. You can use tin sips, pinking sheers, or scissor. Any of these should work fine.
Now, Use one of those ready-made scrapbooks you can buy at any craft store for the base of this project.
You wan to measure how large your scrapbook cover is and make your Vintage Ribbon strips about four inches wider and taller.
Don’t forget to cover both the front and back at the same time, so when you are measuring how wide you scrap book cover is lay the book open and face down flat. Measure all the way from left to right.
Now, I like to run a bead of hot glue along the inside top edge of the scrapbook cover. Go ahead and place your strips of Vintage Ribbon vertically ling this top row on the inside. The ribbons should be touching on the left and right. Cover the entire inside edge.
Now, flip your Vintage Ribbons over and have them hang over the front of the scrapbook. Fold them back inside the bottom and glow them down inside the bottom edge of the scrapbook cover.
Repeat this step on the front left inside of the cover with your horizontal pieces.
Flip the ribbons over the edge and out the front. Weave them out to make the cover.
Now, as you reach the backside fold the ribbons inside and glue them down in the inside edge of the back cover.
Repeat until the entire scrapbook is covered in Vintage Ribbon.
Do any trimming if necessary.
To add a sparkle to your woven metal scrapbook cover you can pin on some vintage jewelry. Vintage pins and vintage earrings wood look awesome.
To complete the woven Vintage Ribbon scrapbook cover you need to line the inside of the scrapbook cover with felt. Start by cutting a piece of fabric out to fit the inside of the cover.
Next, cut out pieces to line the inside of the inside of the back scrapbook cover. Glue it into place as well. Glue it into place with a spray adhesive or epoxy glue that will stick.
You are finished!
