Laura here today showing you a make with the new owl ribbons. They are lovely - happy, colourful and cute. I wanted to make something that I could use a long length of the ribbon to really show it off - I really didn't want to cut it up!! So...
...here is a tissue box!
I took a regular tissue box and measured it, then with a sheet of 12x12 paper I made a sleeve to fit over the box. I attached mine underneath - if you do this with repositionable glue you can simply take the sleeve off and stick on to a new box when the tissues run out.
I decorated the top with a strip of owl ribbon mounted on to some lilac paper. Then, and I was really excited by this, I used rub ons to write bless you on to a flat button. I didn't know rub ons worked on buttons, but they do and they are really effective! I glued the button on with pin flair glue gel.
This is on display on Crafty Ribbons exhibition stand. It's been to Glasgow and Olympia and I think it will go to the NEC too :)
Thanks for stopping by!
