To make this sampler, you cut equal lengths of ribbon. Then you punch 3/4" squares of black cardstock. Each piece of ribbon was folded over at the top and then sandwiched between two pieces of cardstock before being secured with an eyelet. I would never have done this project this way if it weren't for the new Crop a Dile. It was so easy to punch through all the layers of paper and ribbon. And setting the eyelets was a dream--it didn't tax my hands, wrists or patience. I love the tool. This project is a great camp for selling the Crop-a Dile.
