Same paper-different cards

This card was fun and fast.  I actually made 4 of them while I was at it.  For the cards you need 2 white or off-white pieces of paper, each piece makes 2 cards.  I covered the front of the card with a print and then cut 3/4 of an inch strips out of a coordinating solid, around which I put the ribbon.  The easiest way to attach ribbon is to use 2 small glue dots across the front and tape the edges onto the back.  I used the same solid the strips were made out of and some decorative scissors to cut 4 small squares. Mine are about 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches finished.  Then I printed off my computer the "For You" on another coordinating solid and glued it onto the square. I used 3 different types of ribbon, because that is what I had on hand and finished the cards off with some stickers.
