I recently purchased the We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon tool and some of their ribbon packs. So let's see if I can use this thing! (if I can do it, anyone can!)
Punching the design into my paper was easy enough. The magnets keep things in place nicely. It is recommended to do this on a harder mat, not the foam mat that comes with the Sew Easy tool. I agree.
You get these little pieces of plastic adhesive to create a needle at the end of your ribbon, so threading is easy. I just had to be careful not to twist my ribbon and pull gently, but the ribbon slides along easily.
With a little layering and minimal embellishing, I quickly completed this card. The ribbon adds a nice texture without a lot of bulk.
Using the additional tool I purchased, I kept the same basic design, changed the color scheme, and made a similar card. This time, the ribbon has a bit more dimension but I still would not call it bulky.
The Verdict: The tool was easy to use and the ribbon threaded nicely, but I had to pay attention! This is one of those tools I will need to keep close at hand so I remember to use it. I thought the finished result was worth the effort.
Now it's your turn! All the details can be found here. Why not give it a try?
