Okay, so I am a tomboy scrapper. The great part about this ribbon kit is that it can be super girly, masculine, or neutral.
I never really been into sheer ribbons until I actually started to play and create with them. They make nice, subtle background strips and “leaf” accents as I did on my gnome card above.
I do love tags, but find them outdated at times. At the same time, a tag just doesn’t feel right without a ribbon topper. Sheer ribbon works again, by accenting my color choices here, yet still blending in transforming this tag into a more trendier journaling spot.
Pink polka dot ribbon and the dark green velvet ribbon is pure girlyness here on my sparkly lemonade card.
I used the green pom-pom trim ribbon strand to add a little hip and whimsical feel to my thank you card. As you can see, it is wide enough to place a larger sized brad through the trim.
The Fairy Garden kit just screams out shabby-chic to me. The pink velvet ribbon is feminine and I love the added texture it brings to projects.
I fell in love with this sleepy fox print I found on IndieFixx, but wasn’t exactly sure how or where I would display it in my home. I decided to alter a random wooden frame I found in my closet with a nature theme to mimic this print. I trimmed out the inner frame edge in the dark green velvet. The neat part about the dark green velvet is that the opposite side of it is a smooth light green. I love when I tie a bow with the green velvet that it shows both sides and mixes textures. For a dainty look, I overlayed the green lace trim over the velvet. If you attempt to do this, I would recommend Zip Dry clear liquid adhesive or something similar with some heavy books placed on top.
I made this mini-book as part of DT Member Ann’s Go Green Challenge. It is made from 4 toilet paper rolls.
The toilet paper roll is flattened with the end open to create a little slot where you can slip in little tags and extra pictures for this family mini-book.
Thanks for looking! 🙂
