Say it with...Ribbon - Annabelle Stamps
This week the Annabelle challenge is: Say it with...Ribbon. I must say this presented a bit of a challenge for me. First off I wanted to use some of the ribbon that Andrea carries in the Annabelle Store but the only colors I have right now are from her "pink" line. So I had to pick out paper that would work well with pink ribbon. Next up was what to do with it other then just tying a bow. I so wanted to do that really cool looking pleated ribbon style but quite frankly I'm challenged with a sewing machine so I nixed that idea. Next up I tried knotting my ribbon but didn't like the way that looked. Then I tried tying little pieces of thread around parts of the ribbon, which looked okay but the knots kept coming untied so I gave that idea up as well. Finally I settled on "loops" of ribbon and also the tied bow. What do you know, I actually liked this idea!So what do you think?
