Hey there, ribbon fans! :)
I have a different kind of altered project to share with all of you today. Back in January, some friends invited my husband & I to their cabin in the woods of Pennsylvania for a weekend getaway. we had such a lovely time, walking in the snow and watching the deer come right up to the house.
As we were putting wood into the stove one evening, I saw this cute little piece that I knew would make 'something' special one day and asked if I could have it. our friend handed it right over.
I decided it would be the perfect 'thank you' gift for our friends when a few little doo dads were added here and there.
Really Reasonable Ribbon to the rescue!
here is that piece of wood, all gussied up and pretty-fied!
the deer tag image from Polly's Paper Studio was mod podged to the base, topped with a small piece of 2 1/2" plain cotton ribbon, die cuts added, and then decorated with Wild Orchid Crafts mulberry open roses & Chrysanthemums. the same cotton ribbon was used as a hanging loop and tied with hand dyed silk.
die cuts are from Memory Box and Cheery Lynn.
try something new and try an altered project! it's so much fun! :) and I do apologize for the shine on the deer tag image. I was trying a different photo editing software, and frankly am not too impressed with it. will be using my regular one again.
be sure to enter the current challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon, too!
