Hello Ribbons Unlimited Friends !!
It’s Crystal here and today we are going to vamp up a picture frame with ribbon from Ribbons Unlimited and some handmade paper flowers.For this projects I used Ombre Wired – Grass green 1 1/2″ ribbon , this ribbon is so pretty and I love the dark to light ombre effect it has , this ribbon adds so much interest and pop to your project , so let’s get started ..
First I am making my paper flowers ,I stamp two pages of flowers , this stamp is set up as a background stamp so this makes it easy( all products I used will be linked below at the bottom of this post )
this is what it looks like stamped out , I used pink cardstock and a rich razzleberry ink
the die that cuts these out is set up the same as the stamp so its easy to line up and cut about a dozen different sized flowers at once , I cut two sheets worth of flowers to work with
this is what it looks like when cut out
next I stack by flower size
next i use a dabber and more razzelberry ink to ink the edges of the flowers and the centers
next you use a stylus and molding mat to shape the flowers , lay face down and rub every petal from tip of petal and pull to center , this curls the petals , turn over face up and rub a circle in center this makes the flower take shape , then pinch each petal at the tips
next I layer up my flowers and I make different sizes because no flowers all open the same or are the same size
next I use 3D paint in walnut on flowers and moss green on leaves , next I cut 8 and 7 inch strips of the ribbon and hot glue into a tailless bow shape
next I layout the flowers to see placement , now that I know I have enough flowers for my 8″x10″ frame I cut a 24″ pc of ribbon and start at corner and run down the bottom and up the side and twist and hot glue on the frame , next I angel the tails of the ribbon , now I hot glue on my leaves and bows and flowers
finished frame ..What do you think ?? The sweet model is my 8 yr old daughter Zoe’s school picture
look how pretty this ribbon is , so going back to the Ribbons Unlimited store for more of this , is comes in several colors I am sure you can find just the right color for your projects.
Thanks for stopping by , I hope this has inspired you to create something that makes you Smile : )
