Super Simple Project 22 No Cricut Card Day Paper Ribbon and Buttons

On Sunday we did a gift exchange and Christmas party at our Household Fellowship Bible Group, so a thanks you is in order.   Today's card is super simple and all you need is some buttons, ribbon, two sided tape (red tape), twine, glue dots and a cuttlebug folder.
 This card is 6 by 4 inches.   I used 3 colors of ribbon and folded it in on itself to make a frill.  To see how I did the frill click HERE.

A brown strip 1 1/2 by 4 was run through the cuttle bug using the branches folder and was used to hide the end of the ribbon.  You can see how it was folded behind it.
The little tag was added for my sentiment.
 As you can see the ribbon is 3 different lengths and different styles of buttons were added.

Glue dots were used on the buttons to stick them down.

Lastly twine was wrapped and tied into a bow at the bottom and two strips of twine was added at the top  for some contrast.

This view is just a cool side view so you can see how the ribbon looks.

I hope you enjoy the card.
