Today I made Breast Cancer Awareness ribbons for my cousin. She will be walking in the Avon Walk later in the year and as a fundraiser I have made these ribbons for my aunt to sale at her store. We hope to help my cousin get closer to her goal. So far I have spent 1 hour time and got 61 keepers and had 4 thrown out.
I used the ribbons from the Cricut Stand and Salute cartridge. The paper used was 8 1/2" X 11" So I cut it in half to 4 1/4" X 11 inch strips and used my Gypsy to line the ribbons up to fit on this uncommon size. The machine settings were all set to 3.
1. The sheets were split in half
2. I used two mats to speed the process up.
3. I slipped off the backing and removed the ribbons.
4. This is the garbage pile made so far and sample ribbons that I made so far.
