Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Blog HOP

Welcome to the March Stamp Simply Ribbon Store BLOG HOP! Today's blog hop challenge was to create a 3D item. I chose to create more flower goodness with various ribbons found at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!
I placed them in a repurposed prima flower bucket to give away to one lucky blog reader who comments on one of the designers blogs. You will also win a bountiful supply of ribbons from the store too! BLOG CANDY INFO HERE! Patterned paper on the bucket is from October Afternoon's Road Trip paper pad, white is SU.
Here are the flowers that are contained in the bucket. A nice variety of colors and sizes!
I have taken a few individual pics of my favorites. This flower is made with ruffled 3/8" suede ribbon with a suede leaf! LOVE this one!
The 1 1/2" striped ribbon folded in half creates this beauty! A button center tied with striped 3/8" ribbon finishes the look nicely!
1 1/2" gingham ribbon folded in half and gathered is what I used here. A small button with 3/8" matching gingham for the center along with 5/8" twill for leaves is creates the perfect touch!
And probably my most favorite of all! 1 1/4"inch silk ribbon with a suede leaf! So pretty!
I can't wait to see what the incredibly talented designers on the team have been up to, take a look!
Linda Duke- Linda's Works of Heart
Holly McMillen- Toy's Haven Barb Schram- Explore. Dream. Discover.
Sherry Cheever-Walkin' on the Bad Side
Deborah Saaranen- Dream in Color
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! Take good care!
