Don't waste your ends!

Hi there. Laura here today.

Does anyone else get their lengths wrong when wrapping a present and end up trimming 3 or 4 inches off the ends of ribbon instead of the preferred half an inch?  I do ALL THE TIME!!


But I hate waste so I usually add them to a tag.  This way you get no waste and a pretty accessory for your beautifully wrapped parcel!  Here I've used 15mm Micro Dots in Shocking Pink as it was the perfect match to my paper.

A cherry headband


Today I show you what you could do with bias binding and ribbon. A small work with a great appearance .

You could find a lot of bias binding on website and I used also satin ribbon, lace and mini check ribbon.


A charming elastic and it is done!
I am pretty, so pretty...
You could sing with our new headband along summer.

ps: of course I added a ladybug...

Sewn Silk Lilacs

Hi guys, Laura here today.

There seems to be a real trend for ribbon embroidered flowers at the moment.  I have no experience in this but thouoght I'd try to combine it with my love of scrapbooking.  In hindsight I should have learnt the art of ribbon embroidery first before attempting to do it on cardstock and over a photo.  Hindsight is a wonderful thing!


Any how it turned out OK in the end.  The photo is of blooms way past their best so I added some brown watercolour to my silk ribbon flowers to make it look like they had turned too.


You can find some ribbon embroidery kits (with good clear instructions) here and a huge stash of silk ribbons here.  I have used pieces from a scrap bag which is a great way to get started.


Despite the trickyness and frustration it is safe to say I will be trying this again.  I'll be stocking up on silk ribbon too, as they are lovely to work with!
