A New Use For Ribbon

A ribbon bulletin board!
(This can be made with scraps of ribbon also)
 I started by cutting the ribbon in strips that were long enough to fit horizontally across the board.

First, staple the horizontal strips to the board (example on the left).
 Next, one row at a time, staple the top of a vertical strip to the back of the canvas. Then weave the fabric and staple the end to the back (example on the right).

 I finished the back of the board with a clean ribbon stapled around the edge.

I decided to test my skills by using the X-Acto knife. It's a city skyline!

 Draw the picture you want to cut out

After you cut the buildings out put yellow paper behind it using double sided tape

 This was not perfect so I decided to take off the antenna on one of the buildings


I got this in Paris and it is a cut out of the major landmarks.

My trip

I went to Switzerland and France. These are just a few photos from my trip!

When I was in France I found my new obsession. French macarons! I decided to make cute boxes for candies or anything you want to put in them. I got my materials from Paper Source.


You can make a box out of study paper using a template. There are many shapes and sizes to choose from.


A small box you like - purchased or made


A candy stamp

Embossing powder

  I used the embossing tool to put this macaron on the white ribbon
Glue the ribbon to the box (or tie it in a bow)






Two piece box template

 I cut out this shape for the lid
 Fold it in the places the stencil says (like this)
