Crafty Catz Challenge Blog - Anything Goes with the optional twist of use some ribbon

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is nearly here. I hope you have something nice planned. Today I will be popping up to our newly refurbished Co-op as apparently they will be giving out Prosecco. On Saturday we will be visiting our daughter and son-in-law to discuss holiday plans and on Sunday we are having some old friends round for lunch.

Being Friday the new challenge starts on the Crafty Catz challenge blog the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of use some ribbon. The sponsor is Crafty Ribbons.

We are also on the look out for Guest Design Team members for November. If you are interested please put GDT after your name on your entry. We would love you to join us.


When I went to Ally Pally I saw a demo using weaving dies. I thought I ought to be able to do that with ribbon. 

They have some wonderful ribbon click on the logo and you will be taken to the store. 


I stuck the backing paper to the top mat and then with a Spellbinders bauble die I cut an aperture. I used red line tape on the back of the aperture to hold the ribbon in place. I only peeled back the backing on the tape as I need it. I laid strips of the green ribbon down first it is double sided do I alternated the colours. The I took the gingham ribbon and wove it in between the green. When I had finished I stuck a square of card over the back of the ribbon to hold it in place. I stuck pearls round the edge of the aperture.  


To decorate the top I cut the Festive Bough and Holly Spray dies from Creative Expressions. I used Berry Red Pearl PVA to  create the berries on the holly. 


I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
