It's all about Ribbon

Welcome to our Technique Blog hop for the month of January.  This month we are showing you alternate ways of using ribbon.  If you are coming from Kindred Hearts then you are on the right track.  If you get lost along the way or would like to refer back to a specific post you will find a list of all our designers at the end of my post.

I am a big scarf wearer and am always looking for a different way to style them.  So for my project I designed these fabulous brooches to pin on them.  They look very stunning but are quick to make with just a few supplies.

I started first with the Tulle Ribbon (Z1798).  I
really like the Tulle Ribbon from Close To My Heart since it is cut in a smaller width and is pretty stiff and folds nicely.

Next I tried one with the Slate Satin Polka Dot Ribbon (Z1802).  It was a little more difficult to work with because it slides and is harder to keep folded.




And then I thought - Let's put them together and see what we get!  I think I like this one the most, but really can't decide!





How about a little blog candy?  Post a comment and tell me which one is your favorite and you will be entered into a drawing to receive that brooch!  The winner will be announced on January 20.  Now continue on to Wendy's blog and see what she's created for you.

Supplies all Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted:

Tulle Ribbon Z1798

They are all so great, and a wonderful idea! I'd say the last one is my favorite because of its design it could be used as a brooch, bling to home decor or a clustering accessory on a layout.

So, if I leave 2 comments, do I get 2 chances? GREAT video!

What style, what a fashion statement.

Only if I do too.

I like the third one! I've made brooches from old sweaters, but not the nice ribbon....very cool.
