Today I thought I would have a go at this month's challenge over at Lessology - Ribbon Fantasy! The idea is to make a crafty project featuring ribbons and using at least one recycled item.
I pinched another idea from the talented Helen Allen - check out this video, where she shows you how to create a card using tiny scraps of ribbon.
Here's my version ...
This was so easy and fun to do, and very satisfying to use up some of those really tiny scraps of ribbon that you just can't bring yourself to throw away. My recycled items are some of the ribbons - you know those ones which are stitched inside the shoulders of garments and are supposed to help keep them on hangers, but really they're just a pain and they keep popping out and you end up cutting them off? Friends and relations save them for me - I often find some left on my desk at work and I have quite a collection now. They have all kinds of uses, but this one was the best so far! A couple of the ribbons were rescued form packaging - that purple one on the right has something printed all over one side but I tied it so that it wouldn't show on the card.
Thanks for visiting my blog today - check out Lessology, I love their challenges, there is loads of inspiration from their design team and there is a lovely prize to won as well :o)
See you again soon.
