Sparkle and Shine with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Coffee of the Day - Bourbon Pecan

Today begins a new challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge blog. the challenge will run for the entire month of December and the theme is 'Shimmer and Sparkle with ribbon.' I hope you will stop by the blog to see all of the beautiful projects made by the team to inspire you. Be sure to play along with us, too! :)

I decided to make another of my altered almond cans, but this time with a Christmas theme. these are really fun to make. I have a feeling I might just be doing these for various holidays.

The can itself was coated with several coats of gesso, sprayed with pearl glimmer mist, coated with rock candy distress stickles, and then a final coat of icicle stickles was added.

The ribbon spools were painted white and then sprayed with red glimmer mist prior to decorating. sorry the one in front in the photo looks to be leaning. I was trying to get all of the sides in the photo and that one got a bit wonky. ;)

the bird & pine cone pick is from Michael's. I added touches of frosted lace stickles to add not only sparkle but the look of snow to go match the bottom of the tower. Iridescent white metallic string was used to create a large bow that is centered with a rhinestone, also from Michael's.

The ribbon spools are decorated with both vintage buttons and tiny buttons, candy cane stickles, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. paper is from the Authentique Tidings collection. I will list the other supplies below.

ribbons and trims:
1/8" diagonal stripe parrot green
5/8" swiss dots olive
2 1/2" plain cotton blend
1 1/2" red gingham
lipstick red seam binding (sprayed with Mr. Huey's shine mist)

Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and leaves:
10mm and 15mm red open roses
cream cherry blossoms
green cherry blossoms
cream hip rose buds
green hip rose buds
red rose buds
small and large holly leaves
red tuscany rose

thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with another project to share. :)
