Don't you just love the Giesha girls from Queen Kat Designs? I sure do, and this technique goes perfectly with this set. Just look at how easy it is to do. All you need is to grab and extra set of chop sticks next time you get take-out. Here is how to attach your chop sticks using the Japanese Stab Binding Technique...
Step 1: Assemble your card. With card closed, measure in 1 inch from each side and punch a hole in the crease of your card. I used my crop-a-dile. Once your hole is punched, open card and insert a loop of ribbon into each hole.
Step 2: Close card, loops should be sticking up like this. Now slide both chop sticks through the loops.
Step 3: Bring loose end of ribbon from inside of card around the side to the top. Slide ribbon between chop sticks and under loop. Do this on both sides.
Step 4: Tie ribbon together in the center. You can leave as a knot or tie a bow.
This set is just a sneak peek for the March 4th Release. Be sure to head on over to QKD and get your set of Geishas. There are 3 different sets with 2 girls each... then try this technique!
