I’m so excited to have been invited back for one more post…wheee! The brand new May Arts website has launched, and we’re celebrating with a ribbon cutting ceremony!

Here are the three cards shown…the first one has a popped yellow layer with a hole in it, and the center of the flower is recessed into the hole and held in place with a glue dot.

Next I tried long, wide petals and stitched them in the center, and used pearl pen for the dots in the middle.

And last but not least, I made petals with thin satin, and created a poinsettia for a Christmas card!

I think the best fun with ribbon is just experimenting…try something with it and see what happens! What I usually find with May Arts ribbon – it’s really really cooperative. I did attempt to make petals out of SER*, and nearly caught the craft room on fire. So beware – and you might want to have a bucket of water handy!

*SER = Someone Else’s Ribbon!
