I wonder just how many bows we tie in the run up to Christmas?? An awful lot in this house that's for sure!! Christmas just wouldn't be the same without a lot of ribbon would it?
So this month's challenge at the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Blog is just perfect -
Christmas with a Bow
Just create any Christmas project and include a bow. Simple!
A little tip I would suggest if you have a go at one of these is to make a paper template for covering the bucket first as it may take a few fine adjustments to get the cut just right. I then used a sheet of Melissa Frances Christmas paper which I have had for years to cover the bucket. I always use Letraset Studiotac tape for this type of project as it is fabulous for adhering all types of materials. I then embellished with a doily from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop ( these are my new favourite crafting item!!) and a Melissa Frances sticker.
I finished off with some moss green seam binding for my bow and a few bells which I dipped in white acrylic paint and then white glitter for a bit of added festive sparkle. I made the little tag with another Melissa Frances sticker.
These are so quick to make and make a nice change from cards. I plan to fill this one with candy canes, however my daughter says she plans to use it to fill with a few presents for her friend.
We really hope you will join us this month for our challenge, do pop over to the blog and have a look at what my team mates have made they are such a talented bunch of girls you won't be disappointed. There is a prize up for grabs too!
