I LOVE the Crop Addict December Kit!

This kit is simply outstanding! It is definitely one of my favorites ever. Full of awesome patterned papers from Pink Paislee and Bo Bunny and fun coordinating embellishments, this kit is sure to put you in holiday spirit! This kits contains the perfect supplies for several Christmas layouts and even includes the supplies and instructions to create an awesome Basic Grey star ornament! A fabulous kit add-on option is also available. Check out the projects I created with the kit and kit option below.

Ribbon Flower Technique!

I had seen this technique various places before and decided to give it a try myself!

1. Gather your supplies: 6” length of ribbon, thread, sewing needle and something for the center of your flower.

2. Along one side of the ribbon, stitch the thread in a standard alternating fashion. Leave a length of thread loose at your starting end of the ribbon.

3. Once you have stitched along the whole side of the ribbon, take your ribbon and bunch it up on the thread.

4. Take both loose ends of your thread and tie them together so that the ribbon forms a bunched up circle.

5. Cut the loose ends of thread.

6. Now you have your “petals.”

7. Adhere your petals to your layout and then adhere your flower center.

8. Now you have a pretty ribbon flower!

And here is the layout I created with my ribbon flowers!
