Just One Thing: Fancy Pants Ribbon

Rumor has it that several of you have received your May kits.  Yayyy!!!  Hopefully, you picked up this fabulous Embellishment Add-On.

Today, I want to focus on just one thing in this kit.  The Fancy Pants Be You Grey and Black Striped Ribbon.  Isn't it lovely?  But what do you do with it?  Well, here are a few ideas from this month's gallery.

For You Tag by Brenda

You can dress up a simple tag with some of the ribbon knotted in the top. Notch the ends, so they don't fray. How super cute and easy, right?

Sis in Law by Melanie

You can add a strip of ribbon amongst your strips of patterned paper and make it look like a bow.  And look how cute the stick pins are!

Good Eats by Jenny

You can put a knot in the ribbon and add it across your page to ground your title.  Aren't those alphabet stickers too cute against the black and grey?  Love!

Hi Card by Aphra

You can create a pleated flower for a card or layout. Finish it off with a button, a tag, and some leaves and you have a unique embellishment.  Here's how to create the flower.  Add a running stitch to the edge of the ribbon.  Gather the ribbon by pulling on the ends of your thread and tying together.  Use a thick glue dot to attach the flower to your project.

So, what are you planning to do with Fancy Pants ribbon? Be sure to upload your project in our Member Gallery HERE because we'd love to see. 

Happy Scrapping!
