Ribbon Carousel: xoxo




Howdy!

I have exciting news...I've joined the Ribbon Carousel Crew!


Super excited, and thrilled to be part of such a talented team!  Check it out HERE.

Here's the new challenge:


 There are only three (3) rules you must follow to be eligible for the prize:
  1. You MUST use ribbon, twine, thread, washi tape or anything that comes on a spool on your creation 
  2. Your project must be based on the theme of the month. 
  3. You must add a NEW project to the INLINK and link directly back to your project on your blog or online gallery. 
Here's how I was inspired:


Pinterest to the rescue:


I managed to use 2 different washi's and of course, twine!


I've been wanting to do the Lasso type technique with twine and if you look at the first picture, you can see my second washi, polka dot.  It is used to hold down the twine.  The vellum panel is adhered with zig zag pink stitching.

I can't wait to see how you're inspired by the challenge.

Make sure you check out the Ribbon Carousel blog for more inspiration!
