Some time ago I posted the instructions for making a ribbon rose. The ribbon that I used at the time was a fairly wide 23mm ribbon. I've made this rose as I wanted to show everyone that it is possible to make a rose from thin ribbon. I used this beautiful thin wine damasks ribbon to show you what you can do.
The instructions for making this rose can be found here. The principles are the same just the size of the ribbon has changed.
In my last blog entry, I showed you the new cupcake ribbons that have just arrived here with us at Craft Fairy. This time I am going to be far more proactive (don't you just love that word) and show you a simple bow project.
I've put in a picture right away as I always find it annoying if you have to wait until the very end until you find out what it is.
Everyone seems to be going cupcake crazy these days and not just for eating either. We have had a delivery of fabulous cupcake ribbon and I couldn't wait to get it on the web site for all to see. i thought that I'd give everyone on the blog a quick peek at the fabulous, and oh so hot ribbon.
The first one is a 9mm grosgrain cupcake ribbon with really cute tickled pink cupcakes that seem to just dance across the ribbon.
The second is every little girl's dream ribbon. Pink and cakes, what more could you ask for. Yumm!
For the last one, we couldn't leave the chocolate aside and so here it is in the fantastic 16mm chocolate brown grosgrain ribbon. Even more yumm!
I sent the newsletter out this afternoon and strangely enough, even though I am on the mailing list, I didn't get mine. So can you see if your has turned up? Please leave a comment to tell me one way or the other. It costs a lot to send the mail out so I want to know that it's working.
I know that all of you fellow crafters will be well into your vintage cards so that's why this weeks offer on the Craft Fairy site is one that has lovely soft vintage colours. I also think that varying the tones creates a luxury look and so that is what I have put together. The feathers are there because that are beautiful and because I love them.
So I used some of the elements in the offer pack to make a card for you as inspiration. Here it is:
I thought that I would vary the card a bit by using a ribbon flower to add a different finish. So here is an alternative for you:
The flower is a sneak peek of the latest ribbon flower invention that I have come up with. I really, really hope that you like it.
