Say it with…Artichoke, Pineapple and Pumpkin

Posted by on January 11, 2013 in Annabelle Stamps, Other than cards | 6 comments

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).

Ink: 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.
