    LOVE the Veranda album. I was wondering how you adhere the ribbon in order for the album to stay closed when it is tied?

    Thanks Stacy,

    The ribbon is adhered only accross the back of the booklet on a single panel. I made sure to use lots of adhesive al the way across the panel to hold the ribbon well.
