Here is a fun and easy way to make your own pleated ribbon! For a 12" long pleated ribbon, you will need about one yard of ribbon. (You will have some excess, but I like to leave room for error.) You will also need a 12" long piece of cardstock that is smaller in width than your ribbon, some adhesive, and a sewing machine.

Image

First, put a strip of adhesive down the length of the cardstock. I used ATG tape. Keep in mind that you will have to clean any adhesive off of your sewing machine needle if it starts to gum up on it.

Image

Starting at one end of the cardstock, start adhering the ribbon, pinching pleats as you go. Don't worry about them being perfect. You can straighten them later. Just try to keep them uniform in size.

Image

Image

Once you have created pleats all along the length of the cardstock, trim off the excess, and insert the end of the ribbon in your sewing machine.

Image

Straight stitch down the center of the ribbon, adjusting and straightening pleats as you go.

Awesome!!! :D You know I love this one! It's so fabulous. I need to do this with my ribbon on a LO soon since I've decided just to leave out my sewing machine so it's ready for these sorts of projects!

I love this. I have tried to get the same effect with glue dots but it did not work. This is a much better idea.
