This week's Bah! Humbug! Challenge to use Ribbons gave me the opportunity to finally use up some of the scraps of ribbon that we all have in our stash. Y'know ... the bits that aren't long enough to tie bows with but which you can't bear to throw away. Hands up 'cos I know you're all guilty of the same thing.
Last Christmas I used ribbon strips folded in half to create a Ribbon Tree Card which was a very planned project - using the same ribbon throughout, all placed in graduated tiers from the bottom upwards - and although, I was pleased with the finished result, I didn't want to repeat it again.
This time I wanted a more random mix'n'match effect ... and I have to say I really like how it turned out.
Yesssss ... I know it's not a tree, but in my opinion, the wreath worked better because the strips I was using were all different widths and lengths ... and well ... more random! I simply made loops and than applied them randomly to a card ring using a tiny blob of silicon glue. Cool huh?
Hope you like my effort this week but if it doesn't quite 'do it for you' then I'm sure the Bah! Humbug! DT will be able to inspire you with their wonderful projects. Pop over for a peek and if you fancy joining in with our ribbon challenge then I can guarantee you'll be given a very warm welcome.
Fortunately the dimension created using this technique qualifies entry to Charisma Cardz Challenge 20 - 3D this week and it is also a VERY belated submission to Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge from a couple of weeks ago when the theme was wreaths.
Every now and then I manage to get there on time but I think Fab now expects that I will be late.
