A Love Affair with ribbon.............

Sorry for not posting more often.....life gets in the way! I wanted to share a few "ribbon inspired" projects. My affair with ribbons dates back to my girl-hood. Remember the metal barrets that were all the rage that you gussied up with ribbons? You can never have enough ribbon really. It is such a versatile crafty acccessory! I use it for sewing, decorating, decoupage.... and now scrapbooking of course. The totes are a project done at my fave scrapbook store..."The Scrapbook Nook". Great way to use up all your little tidbits of ribbon. If that project doesn't shout girly.....I don't know what does. The metal atrium type container I decided to use unconventionally .....poked a dowel through my ribbons and placed them inside. Perfect home for them...just snip off what I need..whoilaaaaaaaa! You can have diamonds.......ribbons are a girl's bestfriend! xoxo, cherry

Those turned out GREAT!
I love ribbon too, but I haven't been using much lately.

Becki Novacek has some velvet ribbon in her Etsy shop. Yum!

That's a creative and efficient/useful way to store your ribbon. And I can see why you like it so much. I always like a little something with ribbon on it.
