Blog Hop Hosted by the Canadian Nickel. HOP YOUR SOCKS OFF

 HOP YOUR SOCKS OFF

Welcome to my blog and thank you for taking part in this Blog Hop.  I hope you have enjoyed all of the talented women before me as well as the talented women after me.  The video I am presenting for you will demonstrate a ribbon folding technique that I learned from MOMO.  It is a favorite of mine.  This also shows you how to make a simple tag.  This was my first one.



Also, here is a couple of cards  that I did the ribbon folding technique on.



GIVEAWAY, GIVEAWAY, GIVEAWAY


I am offering 2 In Stitches by Bazzel, 4 Homemade flowers and 3 sticky felts.  Just leave a comment on this post and a way to get a hold of you.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your hop and have gotten lots of ideas.  Always keep those crafting juices flowing and have fun.

♥Hugs♥
Meighen

  17. Hi Meighan. What an awesome project! I love that you showed how to use the UTEE, that stuff is awesome and adds such shine to a project! The ribbon is beautiful. There is a product called Fabri-Tac you could use that to hold down the ribbon and the flowers (it works wonderful). TFS and have a great day!

  93. Meighen,

    I love the way your tags turned out! Thank you so much for sharing your favorite technique!!! :) I've seen (& admired) a lot of the folded ribbon lately, but wasn't quite sure whether it was stitched or glued. I like the way you embossed the tag. Do you have to use Craft pads (or would either be okay, since you go over it with Versamark anyway?)? I probably have more Craft pads than classic (because I LOVE to emboss), but I was just curious...

    Thank you so much,
