Is it Thursday already?? I honestly don't know where this week went... I have been busy organizing and shopping, hehe
I have been wanting to do an altered envelope box project that will hold at least 12 cards so as I am waiting to find the perfect box I got started on the cards...
I made sure to have very little dimension so they can be mailed at minimal cost. I am making this project for a very special person in my life and I thought how great it would be that when she needed a card she could go to this box and pick one instead of having to wait for me to make one for her!
I got the stickers from E.A.D. Designs and would have never known about them if it weren't from Jessica from over at Chick-n-Scrap, thanks Jessica!!!
These cards were inspired by a card that Jessica did and I fell in love with it, scoot over and check out Jessica's blog, she is beautifully talented and I love her style.
So as I said, I am organizing and this is something I came up with for sorting leftover ribbon pieces and twine!!
A friend of mine gave me all these containers and they needed a little sprucing up so I covered them in different pattern and solid papers... I allowed the ribbons to hang out a little so that I didn't have to look inside to find a color that I needed, also I could put any color in any bottle!
I am planing on staining the wood box that the containers sit in with coffee, yes coffee!! Did you know that coffee makes the best stain job and it is eco friendly!!! I will show it to you when I get it finished.
I hope this inspires you to keep your ribbon organized!
