A layout with ribbons

Hi; today I'd like to show you a layout with ribbons -
it doesn't always have to be a card, right?? I have
been participating in a midsummercrop on a 
Swedish site, more info on my blog right HERE.

I have been using the gorgeous Summer Breeze 
orange ribbon called Orange Zipper - I love these
ribbons!! You can find it HERE. I have also tied
some knots of the beads in two different colours,
which you can find right HERE.

Hope we get this kind of Greek sun here
in Stockholm too, I 'm longing for some 
real SUMMER!!!

Desk tidy

Hello there .... Carol here, thought i would share with you a project i made a little while back using the Button boxes from Crafty ribbons which you receive your buttons in when you order through crafty ribbons. They make fab draws as the are already put together.

Just attach them to the base of a card and add the bottom of your easel card to them. if you are adding ribbon round them, remember to do this before you add your card so as not to make it harder for you. I have added brads with little ribbon hoops for the draws to make it easy to open.
The ribbons are all from CRAFTY RIBBONS  and the Buttons too. 
I gave this to my daughter for her desk at work.
Hope you like it and maybe it has inspired you to try one of your own....
Take care Carol
