ribbon inspiration

The Monthly Craft Challenge get together is coming up THIS THURSDAY! Are you excited? Have you been working on your projects? Don't worry you're not the only one who hasn't...I'm a little behind, but my project (or projects if I'm ambitious) will be ready to show off this Thursday.

So, in the meantime...if you need a little inspiration. Here are a few things I have found as I scoured the internet a bit. There's some great stuff out there!!

Handheld Ribbon Streamers
Ribbon Bookmarks (these even include buttons!)
Ribbon Headband
Ribbon Rings and more Ribbon Rings
Ribbon-Inspired Holiday Decor (who cares if the holidays are over...there is some amazing stuff to see!)
Upgrade a Lampshade

Ribbon Flowers on a scrapbook page (adorable!)
Ribbon Belt
Ribbon Wreath (I might just have to do this one!!)
Ribbon Greeting Card
Ribbon Egg Cards (I know it's not Easter anymore, but these are too cute and can be adapted for various occasions I'm sure!)
Ribbon Mobile

There, that should whet your appetite a bit, don't you think?

And just for fun and because I know there are many of us who have a lot of ribbon just hanging around needing a little straightening...check out these ribbon organizers. And here's a do-it-yourself ribbon ring or you could just buy one here.

Are you inspired yet? Share with me what caught your eye from this list! And, if you feel like spreading the word, grab that little button over there on the left that says Monthly Craft Challenge so that others can join in the fun!

So, whether it's ribbon in scrapbooks, on cards, or in hair,
Simple, extravagant or something with flair,
Come on back Thursday, I'd love for you to share!

I have been excited about this since I found your blog a couple of weeks ago. I am almost fininshed with my projects.

I think you know I'm not a crafter, but one fun thing to make would be one of those taggie blankets (with ribbon "tags" all over them) for babies. My little one LOVES those tags!

I spotted that ribbon wreath a while back and have been working on mine!
I am so excited to join in this challenge!!

Well... I don't know what I'm planning to make, but you know how much I love a linky party! (and how determined I was to come to Xazmin's mod podge party) so I'm sure I'll think of something cool I have to make ;-)

Xazmin said...

I'll be there!

Hey there, Heidi! I'm new to your blog and I think I'll be sticking around for a while just checking it out!!!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog! I'm glad you liked my mod podge mania projects! If you can't find those little plaques at your dollar store, let me know and I'll check mine.

Stop by again and check out my Dollar Store Challenge!

Hugs from Eventually Cottage!
