Say it with…Artichoke, Pineapple and Pumpkin

Hello and welcome back to another AnnaBelle Stamps challenge. This week we have a colour challenge for you.

I must admit that I was a little thrown by the colours – until I got out my AnnaBelle Stamps stain ribbons. That’s when a crafty project popped into my head – making  some ribbon ruffle flowers.

The flowers were super easy to make. Using a needle and thread, I did a simple running stitch along one side of a piece of ribbon about 15 -20cms long. Once done, I pulled the threads from both ends and the ribbon ruffled into a flower. To finish I tied the ends off. Once I had my three flowers, I used a plain hair clip and hot glued the ribbon flowers on it and added some matching AnnaBelle sprinkles. Simple, simple. (A tip: to make sure that the ends of the ribbon didn’t fray, I used a flame from a match to melt the ribbon ends).


Stamps: None

Ink: None

Card: None

Other Supplies: AnnaBelle Stamps Artichoke 16mm satin ribbon, AnnaBelle Stamps Pineapple 16mm satin ribbon, AnnaBelle Stamps Pumpkin satin ribbon, AnnaBelle Stamps Pineapple sprinkles, AnnaBelle Stamps Pumpkin Sprinkles, Hot glue gun, hair clip.

This week’s winner will receive a $15 Gift Voucher to the AnnaBelle Store. Hope you will play along with us. Be sure to check out the rest of the Belles’ projects – their links are on my side bar.
