I love arts and craft. Recently, I have taken on making handmade cards and scrapbooking. So you can say that I am one busy gal!
I normally use fabric ribbons for most of my handmade cards and scrapbook pages but I found this paper ribbon with adhesive in one of the local scrapbooking supplies stores here in Dubai. I thought to myself, why not give it a try and I did.
The whole Brenda Walton Sweet Talk paper ribbon collection comes in 3 different designs in a pack, each design measuring up to 2 yards. The whole ribbons measure to 6 yards combined. The colors of the paper ribbons are fuschia, pink and red which I think are great colors for Valentine's Day themed cards or scrapbook pages.
The adhesive backing is good to be used for archival purposes. It is lignin free and acid free which is great for accentuating photos you don't want getting eaten by acid in the long run which is the fear of most crafters.
I give this product thumbs up on design, functionality and ease of use. I got to save a lot on the use of double sided tapes, glue sticks and fabric ribbons by using these paper ribbons.
I highly recommend this product to card makers and scrappers out there.
Also, please check out the 2 designs (Be my valentine ribbon and the pink XOXO used under the penguins) I used for my Valentine's Day handmade cards. I have not used the 3rd design yet as I am saving it for a special project.
Update On Apr 03, 2011: I still have a few left of these wonderful Brenda Walton paper adhesive ribbons. I managed to use the "xoxo" design on my other general card projects as well like birthdays, general greetings and get well soon cards. I bought this paper ribbon last year and the adhesive still works fine.
