New Ribbon Colors

Black Sassaman Ribbon

When I returned from Houston Market and Festival there was a stack of mail waiting to be sorted through. Among them was a package from Renaissance Ribbon, always exciting! It contained the new colorways of the Wild Child Ribbon! And it is beautiful!!

After ten days of being away from the studio I was itching to make something, so I whipped up these little gift boxes. First I painted three brown cardboard boxes from Hobby Lobby to match the ribbon. The rectangular lid had a small window that was the perfect size to feature the Morning Glory ribbon. Then I wrapped three sides of the bottom half with the same design and painted the green dots on the lid.

For the oval and round boxes, I fussy cut some leaves from the Flower Fiesta fabric and decoupaged them on the lids and then glued striped ribbon around the edge. Next I carefully attached coordinating ribbons to the bottom halves. Since the ribbon is practical polyester you can keep the edges from fraying with the heat of a flame or burning tool.

Now they are ready to nest a precious little gift… a piece of chocolate or a pair of earrings, perhaps. Oh yes, the fabric they are sitting on is called Brocade and is from my new FreeSpirit line, Sweet Lady Jane, which will be available in stores this January!
