Unbe-weavable Inspiration - Lori Boyd

Hi Everyone!!
Lori Boyd here bringing you my very first Video Tutorial.
My little right hand gal Hannah, aka my Camera Girl convinced me to go ahead and give this a try, the only thing is I said I would only do one take as I felt has if I was gonna have an asthma attack and I felt faint from fear (LOL), after watching it....I think I should have given it another go, but Oh well...We are family here, I can be real... RIGHT?!?!?  
It is very quick and simple!! Not professional, just me sharing with you...my DCRU Friends!!
Now, if you will all please promise me that you will refrain from laughing I will let you see my tutorial...LOL!!
The tutorial is on  
Ribbon Weaving

for tutorial

You may have seen this card a few weeks ago during our DCRU Ribbon Challenge

I created my first weave card when I was on Cuttlebug Challenges last January!! 
This is the card I created in Jan 09:
It can be made with DCRU's Fabulous Card Stock HERE.
And you can find that tutorial HERE.

I also created this card while on OCC last year.
Here is a page from a Valentine Paper Bag Album I made for my husband,
Eric last Valentine's Day.I used my weave technique, used card stock and made a pocket:


As you can see, no matter what the size or the material you use, 
the weave technique adds a lot to your project.   

Satin Ribbon CREME 5/8" x 5 Yds.    May Arts Ribbon BLACK Grosgrain Solid/Ivory Check 7/8" x 5yds.  May Arts Ribbon BLACK/WHITE Dots 5/8" x 5yds. Satin Ribbon PINK 5/8" x 5 Yds.

can be used for weaving 
and as well as any of the Card Stock at the DCRU Store 
View All

I hope I have inspired you all to hop over to the DCRU Store, pick out for favorite Ribbon and Card Stock, then get to work and this simple, yet beautiful technique that can be fun and funky or Elegant and classy!!  A little work with a Big Impact!!

Happy Weaving -
