Tutorial for ruffled ribbon

To add a gathered ribbon to a lace panel

 Take about 1 1/2 meters of organza ribbon, leave about a 2 inch piece of ribbon at one end to stick to the back of your card, start stitching loosely through the centre of the ribbon
Pulling the thread to gather the ribbon as you go along.

Secure the 2inch piece to the back of the card

Turn card facing you

And start to stick the gathered ribbon to the 
Hi-tac tape as you stitch,
keep stitching the ribbon and pulling the thread to gather it up, sticking it to the tape as you go along,

When you get to the other end secure the end of the ribbon to the back of the card, give the end a few extra stitches to secure the gather.
