Not so Red, White, & Blue...

Hi Creative Peeps!  Today I decided to use crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM's 
But...nothing patriotic or summery!

I also wanted to create something using a fancy fold..but quickly.  I love this "piano hinge fold," as I like to call it.  After scoring your card as usual, make another score line on the top of the card front...about an inch down.  

Use 3Girl JAM's crinkle ribbon...or jute string...to bind your card together. Punch 2 holes through your card in this top area...then thread your desired ribbon through. Finish it off with a bow...or a knot!

A dainty fox is so happy with her splash of red crinkle ribbon!
It plays well with the red washi tape!
You can see the rest of this awesome Forest Friends set at
Pretty Cute Stamps.  All the amazing bling can be found at the Eyelet Outlet!

I have been enjoying this large sticky backed bling!

Here is a piano hinge fold on the side, instead of the top.  
How do you like red, white, & blue..and a bit of pink! 
A nice change from summer and patriotism, don't you think!

The cupcake and bling strips can be found at the Eyelet Outlet as well.
And the "Cutie" sentiment comes from Pretty Cute Stamps: Hamster Cutie.
