Ruched Anywhere Garland

Here's a quick embellishment tip that you can use anywhere: on cards, ornaments, stitchery, wood, etc. It uses Kreinik Iron-on Thread in an "altered" technique, and this thread simply fuses to surfaces with a hot iron. Use a craft iron or home iron. We decorated greeting cards and gift tags with our altered ribbon.

Materials needed:

  • Kreinik Iron-on 1/8" Ribbon in your choice of color (we used 6225 Gold)
  • Mini craft iron or home iron
  • Kreinik Adhesive Press Cloth*
  • Many home irons are Teflon® coated, but most craft irons are not. This adhesive press cloth goes on the plate of your iron like a sticker, and gives you a non-stick surface that will keep your iron clean. We highly recommend it for use with iron-on threads.


Instructions:

  1. Take a length of 1/8" Ribbon (say, 18") and tap the end to separate the individual fiber strands.
  2. With your fingers, gently start pulling on one of those strands to ruche, or bunch up the remainder of the ribbon. Slide this bunched area down, and keep pulling gently with your fingers. Work the bunch into a zig-zag pattern (like rick-rack), or keep it bunched as desired.
  3. When desired effect is complete, iron the ruches ribbon to your surface. May sure your iron is heated to the highest heat setting. Lay the thread at a starting point, cover with your hot iron, and press for several seconds until the thread adheres. Lay the ruches ribbon flat, or press every 1/2-inch to leave parts of the ribbon standing up.
