Sprinkles on the Cupcake of Life & How to Make Faux Ribbon

Do you have one or two go-to products in your craft stash that you can always grab and make something amazing?  Well, hands down, that's how I feel about the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set and Tree Builder Punch in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  For the most part, everything I create with these two products, I like.

I've been very busy with Stampin' Up! parties this entire month, and I've been having a blast at every event!  Since everyone absolutely adores the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set and Tree Builder Punch, I've been sure to share projects to make with them at all of my parties.  This Sprinkles on the Cupcake Card has been a big hit each time I've shared it.

For this card, I borrowed my design inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest, but I made it my own by adding a few additional elements.  For example, I added embossing to the card base, several punched pieces, and that "faux ribbon" at the top of the tag.

Just what is one to do when you check your ribbon stash, and you realize that we don't have any current Crushed Curry ribbon in our collection?  Well, after I thought about it for a second, I realized that I could make my own faux ribbon with some cardstock.  Necessity is the mother of invention, right?

For the faux ribbon, I cut a piece of 1/2" x 4" Crushed Curry Cardstock, banner cut the ends with my Hexagon Punch, folded the paper off center in the middle, and, wallah, I had what I needed!  I stapled the "ribbon" to the top of my tag, and it was just what the doctor ordered.    

So, the next time you don't have ribbon in the color you need, just fake it with one that you make from cardstock.  Easy, peasy!
