QKD russian dolls and the Twist and Smoosh Ribbon Tutorial!!

Hi Everyone!! This is my first Official Queen Kat designs Blog Post!! I LOVE being a royal stamping maid and I hope you enjoy this tutorial!
I wanted to show everyone how I do the ribbon technique taught to me from my SU demo! She thought of this all on her own! It is really cool and I love using it!!

I dont have video so I took a series of pictures and hope I can tell you good enough how to do it! It is pretty easy. I call it the twist and smoosh technique :) So here goes!!

Here are all my supplies I used, my QKD stamps, my scissors, my cardstock already cut out, my ribbon and my sticky strip. I have my card already pre assembled so all I have to do is throw it together.

I put my sticky strip in the middle of the paper I want to go directly onto my card base.

I tried to keep it pretty straight across.

make sure it wraps around the back a bit so you can attach the ribbon ends back there hidden. You then remove the red backing of the tape.
Attatch one end of the ribbon on one side back.
I leave the ribbon on the roll if possible, if you want to cut it make sure you cut extra for the twisting and smooshing! You want to start on one end and work from that end across to the other side.
You start by twisting the ribbon, just like a twisty tie just one twist, then smoosh that twist down onto the sticky strip.
Then twist again... and then smoosh again... make sure you keep twisting in the same direction throughout the whole time.
Keep going like that the whole time, twist one time then smoosh, twist another time then smoosh, keeping the twists not too big and close together is the best!
You get a ripply effect! Still twisting...
and then Smooshing down onto the sticky strip...

When you get to the end snip it off with some to wrap around the back and stick to the sticky strip.

Here is my final piece of paper with the ribbon technique all the way across.
You can make it look like you want but this is how mine turns out.

Here is my final card fully assembled.
