friday fun




 
 
 
 






It is Friday...are you glad?  It is also the 15th which means RRR is having another fun challenge...this time flowers with ribbon.  I decided to join in.  I can never resist a bloom.  I thought I would do a quick little tutorial for you showing my flower layers and how I went about decking my bag out.  The middle layer of the flower is a technique I have posted before where you simply roll and twist the flower.  You can make them small or humongous if you like.  I used the red polka dot double ruffle ribbon which manipulated really well.   Very easy to use and made a nice full bloom.  I layered it with some vintage swiss dot fabric I diecut flowers from. 
                Once I had my bloom ready the fun part of gussying up my bag began.  I used some cottagey floral papers and washi tape.  I had a bit of crepe paper fringe left and used it.  From there I adhered my bloom using hot glue and than went about stamping my mason jar tag.  I had fun revisiting this stamp set from Pti.  It is one of my favorites.  I also used an older mini stamp set from Maya road.   Once I had it adhered I topped it off with some red seam binding and cherry bakers twine .   I love the color combo....my favorite.  My bedroom has a lot of this and I never tire of it.  Well I am off to spend time with my son.   I get him to myself today and I think we will go do something simple but ...maybe ice cream and book hunting?  Hope you enjoy!  Happy weekend!  Cherry
