Ribbon With A Twist

Yes, this is Stampin' Up! ribbon. I have played with it (quite a bit) to get this effect.
-Cut a length of 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.
-Snip the edge off along the length.
-Use your snips to tease out half of the strands ( do this a few strands at a time).
-Put the point of your snips in every 1.5cm and twist them about to make a gap (this will also create the wave effect at the bottom of your ribbon).
-Pull the ribbon straight.
-Adhere it to your card.
-Twist the threads together that you pulled out of the original ribbon.
-Use a Designer Brad to make the top of the tassle.
-Attach to the card.

I hope that this makes sense.

Kind regards
