Scrapbooking Attitude: DIY personalized ribbon

It’s the time of year to start thinking about  Halloween.  I always make some kind of neighbor gift for Christmas, but I thought it would be fun to make something for Halloween too.  Adding personalized ribbon just adds just the right touch I think and I did that by using a printable film from Scrapbooking Attitude.

It’s a clear film that you can print onto and then put it onto anything, including paper and fabric. It's awesome stuff!
This is how I made my personalized ribbon:
You will need:
Scrapbooking attitude printable film
Adhesive (I used spray)
Inkjet printer
The first thing I did was set up what I wanted to print.  I used Silhouette Studio because I had some images on there that I could use.  I mirrored the images before I printed them.

I printed the images onto the film, onto the glossy side of the paper.  You might want to print onto regular paper before printing onto the film.

Once it printed, I let it dry before using it.

Using a paper cutter, I cut it.  I cut through the plastic and the white backing.

I sprayed the ribbon with the spray adhesive.

I immediately put the down the clear film onto the ribbon and pressed it down to work out any bubbles and then let it dry.

Then I tied it onto a bag filled with candy corn.

I also made a card.  I made regular pink ribbon into polka dot ribbon.

Isn’t this stuff so cool?  I really had fun playing with it.  There are so many possibilities you can do with it.  I can't wait to make something else with it!
