May Arts Ribbon DT Call

 May Arts and the Ribbon Lady offer an amazing product!  These ribbons are just AWESOME!  I have been using them on my project for some time now so when I saw this design team call I had to give it a shot.
This is round 1 of the May Arts Prima Ribbonista design team call…
I have a few new projects to share with you.  The first was inspired by my crafty friend Christina.  She has been baking some amazing cakes lately and I came up with this treat box that looks like a fluffy cake.
May Arts ribbon, Carta Bella So Noted paper, liquid pearls and distress ink.

Next I made a wreath, in honor of spring, I was so happy to start seeing nice weather!!
IMG_7516I wrapped a small Styrofoam circle in yarn and then in one of my favorite May Arts ribbons.  I have almost every color of this chevron ribbon!!!

This next project, for my nieces-one each in their favorite colors, uses homemade chalkboard paint.  I thought they would have fun with these door hangers  by writing their own messages on them.
IMG_7512I stamped them with my FAVORITE VLVS! the spotted butterfly in 2 sizes, wrapped some May Arts silk ribbon (that I sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist) and tied on a button.  The rolled flowers are made with May Arts 1.5 inch white ribbon and suede leaves.
First I tied a knot in the end of the ribbon.
I used a Glubber but you could also cut a circle and use a strong adhesive.  Attach the knot in the middle of the circle.
While twisting the ribbon begin attaching in a circle around the knot.
Continue until you reach the edge of your circle.  I tucked the end under and adhered.

I needed two flowers and sprayed them in different colors of glimmer mist.
I wanted two leaves for each flower so I cut off four suede leave and sprayed with glimmer mist.

After everything was dry (I am not very patient so I used my heat gun to speed things up) I hot glued the leaves and flower to my door hangers.  Viola!

Next is a little gallery some more of  my favorite projects all using May Arts ribbon.
