Does anyone else get their lengths wrong when wrapping a present and end up trimming 3 or 4 inches off the ends of ribbon instead of the preferred half an inch? I do ALL THE TIME!!
But I hate waste so I usually add them to a tag. This way you get no waste and a pretty accessory for your beautifully wrapped parcel! Here I've used 15mm Micro Dots in Shocking Pink as it was the perfect match to my paper.
Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a wreath I made using various Crafty ribbons collections!

There seems to be a real trend for ribbon embroidered flowers at the moment. I have no experience in this but thouoght I'd try to combine it with my love of scrapbooking. In hindsight I should have learnt the art of ribbon embroidery first before attempting to do it on cardstock and over a photo. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!
Any how it turned out OK in the end. The photo is of blooms way past their best so I added some brown watercolour to my silk ribbon flowers to make it look like they had turned too.
You can find some ribbon embroidery kits (with good clear instructions) here and a huge stash of silk ribbons here. I have used pieces from a scrap bag which is a great way to get started.
Despite the trickyness and frustration it is safe to say I will be trying this again. I'll be stocking up on silk ribbon too, as they are lovely to work with!
We all could use a desk tidy, me perhaps more than you guys !! This one is very easy to make as its just three boxes joined together and the finishing touch is the fabulous Summer Festival-Meadow ribbon which can be found HERE
