I needed to make another box for my Xmas tree and this ribbon was perfect for adding the banding around the bottom of the box, especially as it has the sentiments on it.

mr and mrs

Hi Guys, Laura here today.  I can't make a mini album without including ribbon!  This time I have used Swiss Dots and Grosgrain 3mm in colours to match the 'Wish List' kit from like for ever.

I have made the mini album to celebrate a friends wedding, but the photos were not brilliant quality.  This gave me the idea to go small, which reminded me I had a little tin saved to upcycle...

I made a concertina strip to fit the little tin.  I adhered a piece of ribbon to the bottom edge of the tin to use as a tab - a little pull and the album pops out of the tin.

Then to finish it all off nicely I tied the tin with 3mm ribbon and added a handmade charm.  The charm includes glass beads hand made by the bride for that extra personal touch.

You can see more here and here!

Christmas Tree

Hi, Laura here today.  When I received the main feature range of Christmas ribbons - Christmas Charm - from Crafty Ribbons I was instantly in love with the colours.  Not the standard bright red, but a slightly darker shade and a few gorgeous greens.  I wasn't sure what I was going to make but this idea formed and grew...

I glued strips of ribbons on to calico and cut out two tree shapes.  I zig zag stitched the edges and sewed them together leaving a hole at the bottom.  I used some toy stuffing to give it a little body and placed it on a kitchen roll holder!  Yes, that's right... the stem and base is a kitchen roll older - it was the right size so why not?!

I finished the bottom edge with a couple of widths of lace, in scarlet and kiwi.

This tree is on display on the Crafty Ribbons exhibition stall.  If you'd like to make one you can free style the shape and get the supplies on the list below, or grab a kit to make a smaller hanging version.

Santa's Treats

Hi, its Laura here today with a Christmas tin...

I've had this tin for a while so I re-purposed it by covering up the slogan on the lid and decorating it all Christmassy.  Perfect for giving home made mince pies as a gift.

I've used the Santa Festive Combo - character ribbon, ho ho ho ribbon and a wonderful Santa shaped button.  I added paper, a tag and sequins from my stash.  Oh, and I threaded the tag with some 3mm grosgrain in Island Blue.

Bring on the mince pies!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
