i-magicut Intensive - Day 4


Sadly, today is our final day of the i-Magicut Intensive.
But we hope that you've enjoyed the projects that our Design Team has been sharing with you this past week and that you've learned many ways in which to use the fabulous tool.

And even though it's our last day we still have lots of inspiration and stunning projects to share with you today. So let's get started.

Rebecca Keppel
"I started by just cutting a bunch of different strips of ribbon. I cut them at different angles and some straight across. I love all the different looks you can get by lining the ribbon up on different angles and how the grid inside the i Magicut helps keep the cut straight. I was just trying it out, but then I figured all those strips of ribbon would add lots of color and texture to a layout, so I tied some in knots others in bows and adhered some straight on squares of Makin' Waves paper."



"I used grosgrain ribbons for my project. With grosgrain ribbons it takes about 8-10 seconds to make a complete cut with the Imagicut. When using a swiss dot ribbon, be sure to place the dots face down; this keeps the wire inside the Imagicut from getting gunky. I cut my ribbons in a dovetail fashion. Just fold your ribbon in half and place into the Imagicut at an angle; press for atleast 12-14 seconds (longer because you are cutting through two pieces). I also used a couple of the 'scrap' pieces of ribbon for the top portion of my layout!"



"I love to use ribbons in my projects, but there was always the problem of frayed ribbon ends. But now Imaginisce invented this amazing tool, called I-Magicut to break decisively with this problem: no more with those frayed ribbon ends and I will have precise cuts and great finish!"

"We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon and I've had the seashells in a drawer ever since we got back, waiting for the right thing to do with them. I thought it would be cute to create a scene with some sand, the shells and a few other tidbits of goodies like netting and some wire garland. The i-Magicut made my ribbon decoration so easy and fast!!! Love it for this sheer organza ribbon!!!"

Laura Church said...

I use Score Tape along the length of my ribbon, but I also adhere the ends around to the back of the page to hide the fray. Yay I-Magicut no more fray!

Barbara said...

As paper crafter, I prefer to cut slots in my projects to provide a place to tie ribbons securely rather than use an adhesive. I often close a box I've made this way.

Elisabeth said...

I like to use tiny stables to adhere them. Love the new tool - it would be great to own one!

Moni said...

Fab projects, love all. I like to glue ribbons with double side tape. Hugs,moni

Angie said...

My favorite way to adhere ribbon to my projects is my ATG gun ~ love it!!

Angela's Originals said...

I usually put the rigging through my Xyron X. It's so easy

rlovew said...

depends on what the projects is and what kind of ribbon it is- sometimes I use glue arts glue lines, other times my xyron, and sometimes mini glue dots. Adorable layouts today!

Jean said...

I use ribbon adhesives which really work well! Thank you for the chance to win!

CRAZY4 CHRIST said...

Wow great layouts and projects! I usually tape the ribbon to the back of my project and then layer that piece onto a another piece of cardstock, if I don't do that then i use my ATG. Thanks for the chance to win!!

I love all these projects, especially Shellye's cute layout with the ribbon banners! Thanks so much for sharing... and the chance to win! I love to make big fat bows for my cards... and using ribbons as borders and strips on a layout.

mnoble said...

I so want this I-magicut. I have a ribbon obsession. It depends on the project as to how I adhere, but mainly by running it through my Xyron, glue dots or threading it through holes in the project.

Marcia Dehn-Nix said...

Love today's layouts, so fresh and clean! I usually just use tombow adhesive if I'm laying something flat. If it needs a little more stick to it, I use Liquid glass.

Holly and little people said...

I, truth be told, have been afraid of adhering ribbon to my projects, so I usually just tie the ribbon around something.

Chris - Creations in Bloom said...

Beautiful projects! My favorite way to adhere ribbon is to use my ATG gun.

silvia said...

I use Wacky Tac to adhere my ribbon

:)

jrugg said...

Great projects! I use glue dot brand glue lines to adhere my ribbon

littlen said...

great projects. tfs. i use a very thin strip of sticky tape to adhere ribbon.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

Beautiful projects. The way I glue down ribbon is glue dots or my other many tape runners. Thanks for the chance.

Amanda said...

I use Glue Dots or a tape runner to adhere ribbon. Sometimes a good old fashioned bow holds everything in place! Darling projects everyone!

NinaN said...

I usually just roll out a layer of adhesive with my ATG and then lay the ribbon on top. SOmetimes I run it through my Xyron.

Snips and Snails said...

I don't have a great way to adhere my ribbon, but I just got an ATG so I think that will become my go-to.

LolĂ´ Artesanato said...

Gorgeous projects today
I use adhesive tape!

Caryn S said...

Glue tape works great for me! The ribbon I use is almost always wider than my tape so I just line the back of the ribbon and stick it down.

Jessie G. said...

I use glue dots or double sided tape!

PhotoArtbyChelle said...

I love to put my ribbon down with either glue dots or staples. I will also make it long enough to go around the layout and use tape.

OmaGloria said...

What a lovely way to display your momentos Rhonda. You can look at it and remember your wonderful honeymoon every day.

I use X-Press It tape to adhere my ribbons and fray check on the ends but that can be very troublesome at times and would so love to get a i-Magicut. Maybe in time it will happen. :-)

Precious Hugs

UnikeByYes said...

Michele Duffy said...

I run the ribbon thru my Xyron.

sharon g said...

May Arts has a ribbon adhesive that really works!

Court said...

I LOVE Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares or Perma Tac Squares or their Ribbon Adhesive! It all works wonderfully to adhere ribbon down! :) GREAT projects today all!

Iris said...

I use double sided tape or glue dots to attach ribbon to my projects.

Natasha G.P. said...

If it REALLY needs to stick, like even if it gets wet, I use a glue gun.

B. Poteraj said...

I use ribbon adhesive because it doesn't show through, and it really sticks my ribbon to my paper.

Becca said...

Wonderful projects highlighting a great product! My favorite way to ahear my ribbons is either with my ATG or just tie it on ... I love a big, beautiful bow!

Liz said...

Some really cute ideas
Looks like a great tool

Becky Dunham said...

More amazing projects today! I love the honeymoon bucket - what an awesome idea! I quite often just tie my ribbons on a card with a knot or bow, but if I need adhesive, my favorite is probably Scor-Tape or maybe Glossy Accents depending on the project! Thanks for the chance to win this amazing tool!

Melinda said...

Ooh, what amazing projects! Thanks for inspiring!

dlwidder said...

Love using Helmar 450 Quick Dry for ribbons. It's liquid, fast drying and does not bleed through even sheer ribbons! :-D

Bethany Becker said...

Great projects. Thanks for sharing. I usually use my Xyron X to adhere my ribbon.

SemSee said...

Amazing projects yet again - what an awesome team you have!! I use different ways to adhere my ribbon to my cards depending on what I'm doing. I use double-sided permanent tape when I want to ruffle/pleat ribbon across a card, PVA glue to attach bows when I have time to let it dry (glue dots when I don't) and a dry glue stick called Pritt Stick to help keep ribbon in place whilst I glue it to the reverse of my paper. Lots of different ways, lol!

Nicolle74 said...

Amazing creations! I use Aleene's Tacky craft glue or foam squares.

Kimberli said...

Beautiful projects by the DT! I usually tape my ribbon ends on the back, to keep them hidden! But if the ribbon is shown then its usually tied in a bow and attached with a glue dot!

Helen said...

I love to put a strip of ribbon around the cardstock top layer of my card and then tie a bow along the front somewhere.

tmtluvs2scrap said...

such fun ideas! I love using ribbon on cards. I've been very inspired with all these ideas.

lynda said...

I usually glue down ribbon, but I'd prefer a good alternative because sometimes it's shown on the top side of the ribbon.

Jamie said...

I usually just glue down my ribbon with ATG tape.. or terrifically tacky tape.. sometimes i use tombo glue.

Great projects! I love Rhonda's bucket! Does this mean I can throw away my lighter and stop melting and burning my ribbons and fingers? Fantastic idea, again!
