In my continued inspiration from A Little Hut, and knowing that kategirl tried it with success, I gave this a try and I'm pleased with how it turned out.


Below you can see the half-inch depth between the top cut-out piece and the ribbon piece.


And here's a detail close-up:


Here's the cost break down:

Painted wooden frame with particle board spacer and mat board to fit 4 x 6 photo --> $2.50 from the dollar section of Target

2 Spools of painted ribbon in various colors --> $1.00 each

White cardstock, cut to fit --> already had, but it's dirt cheap

I basically followed the rules from Patricia's tutorial except instead of being green and reusing newsprint cut into strips, I used ribbons.

I like it, how 'bout you?

This is so cute! But if i may ask how do you add the depth between the ribbon peice and the cut out peice?

The frame I  used came with a little half-inch spacer between the glass and mat board. I cut the cut-out piece to fit just behind the glass, and the ribbon piece is larger so it rests behind the mat board.

You could also use foam pop-up squares/dots, or make your own spacer to get the same effect, but you need a frame that's built to have all that thickness.

I hope I didn't just confuse you more!
