Scrapbook Steals July Blog Hop
More hopping fun for you today! You should be arriving here from Julie's blog. If not, you will want to start right at the beginning of the hop, on the Scrapbook Steals blog, so that you won't miss out on any of the fabulous projects or your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to scrapbooksteals.com!
I was so flattered when Kristy Lee from Scrapbook Steals emailed me and asked if I would be a guest for the July blog hop. Umm, let me think about that for about 2 seconds... :) Then I panicked a bit when I received the product that we are featuring on today's hop: Fancy Pants Design Ribbon Bundles.
My three trims were brown, brown, and brown! Quite the challenge for a color-lovin' girl like me! I soon found that these trims were so fun and versatile-check out my projects for some fun ways to use this package of embroidered muslin trim, rickrack, and seam binding!
My favorite project is this altered embroidery hoop, which uses all three of these trims. Can you find them all? The rickrack and embroidered muslin are stitched to the background, and I crinkled the seam binding to tie around the top:
Here are close-ups of the banner and tag:
Won't you agree that "Handmade is Better?" :)
I used up my scraps to make 2 little cards. "Cherry-O" uses the embroidered muslin made into a little rosette and embellished with a button. "UR Just My Type" uses the last bit of seam binding. I left some of it crinkled to use as a bow. It reminded me of the old typewriter ribbons! I also used my ribbon iron to iron the tiny piece that I had leftover and adhered it flat with my banners. Do you see it peeking out on the left?
I hope that you have enjoyed today's projects. I had so much fun making them! You can "steal" your own Fancy Pants Ribbon Bundles HERE at Scrapbook Steals!
