Make your own personalized twill tape

I found this awesome inspiring post a couple months ago, gathered supplies & am JUST NOW getting to play.
I thought that it would be really nice to add a message to the ribbon on my packaging, So I used a page of Print & Press from my stash, & picked up some Wrights 1/2” twill tape.  Little investment in the event this project was too cumbersome (which it is totally NOT).
In Word, I used the Word Art feature for the text & then rotated the image 180 degrees. This command is in the Microsoft Word Art Toolbar.  I just copied & pasted the word art box on a new line as many times as it would fit.  Then ran the page through my printer twice, once for each column (which is why the print is in different directions). 
I cut one out for practice & Ta-Da!  What a cute fat quarter bundle!
