Something different.


Thought I'd do something different! The book came in a QVC kit which Leonie demonstrated last week. The kit is lovely with pre-printed patterned cards (My current craze!), chipboard and cardstock embellishments etc. The book has sections inside and is perfect for organising ATC's which is what Leonie had done with hers. I tied on some fibres, added chipboard letters (from another QVC kit), stamped a heart image, and added gems and a button.
I had been tempted to buy a ribbon organiser for ages as I was fed up untangling ribbons in my choc tin but then decided to save some pennies and make my own. I painted a plain box with acrylic paint, stuck on some whole pieces of dovecraft paper and cut out some flowers. I also stuck on some painted jigsaw pieces and the same chipboard letters as before. My first attempt at altering something!

These are gorgeous! Love that ribbon box - I could definitely use one of those - will have to do some altering myself!!

Oh am I jealous. My ribbons are in one big lump and I usually have to untangle them before adding to any piece. These are both fantastic projects and you've decorated them so beautifully. They will surely be a welcome addition to your art room. Your school atcs will be on their way in the next day or so. Thank you for the warm welcome home!!
