Ribbons Unlimited Projects

After a 2.5 month sabbatical I went back to work on January 14th. It's good to be back, but I have less time and sometimes also less energy to be creative. I did create several projects for Ribbons Unlimited in the past few weeks. I'll show them all in this blog post.

The first project is a ribbon brooch made of Ribbons Unlimited's Double Face Satin Ribbon. The soft ribbon is perfect to use for this project. Instructions how to create this brooch can be found here.

SUPPLIES: Ribbon: Ribbons Unlimited (7/8" Double Face Satin Ribbon Antique White, 5/8" Grosgrain Spring Moss) | Pearls: Zva Creative | Felt: De Witte Engel | Other: Tacky glue

For my second project I used Double Face Satin Ribbon too. This time I used the ribbon to create a ruffled ribbon flower. Instructions can be found here.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned paper: October Afternoon | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack no. 3 Collection) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist, Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Vintage Sepia) | Ribbon: Ribbons Unlimited (7/8" Double Face Satin Ribbon in Crystalline) | Twine, doily: Cards & Wishes | Adhesive dots: Zva Creative | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack no. 3 dies, Pinking Shears Border Die), sewing machine | Other: Tacky glue

I made Valentine's Day cards for my girls and Eric. Since I was very late I kept it simple. This is the card I made for Fleur. Quite clean & simple, but the beautiful Scarlet grosgrain ribbon gives it an extra touch.

This one's for Eric. It didn't turn out as I had in mind, but I had no time to create a new one.
