H2H Challenges: Ribbon

This week's Heart 2 Heart challenge is to use ribbon on your project.  Boy, did I have fun with this one!  All of my supplies were things that I had on hand, and (I think) it came together nicely.

I began with a blank, plain wooden frame that I think I got for $1 long ago.  I cut the ribbon to fit across the frame, making stripes.  Then, I spread the tacky glue all over the frame, washed my hands, and quickly hurried back to lay down the strips of ribbon, one at a time, to adhere to the frame.
After it all dried, I trimmed the edges a bit.  The pennants were cut with the Cricut cartridge, and I stamped my daughter's name in Hollyhock and sponged the edges in Cocoa.  (The Sweet Leaf ribbon at the beginning and end of the name pennant is retired.)  I added the mini Sweet Leaf sparkles between each pennant, and then larger pink sparkles in the flower centers.

We decided that we liked the addition of the wooden butterfly, so I embellished it with more sparkles and Bronze Glitter Glitz Gel.
This week's challenge is somewhat bittersweet for me because (a) it marks the last challenge for my great H2H Team B and (b) my daughter was a third grader in this picture and she's now 14!

Now it's your turn.  Go grab some ribbon and get crafty!  Be sure to use some Close To My Heart products and link up your work at the H2H blog before the end of the month.  Happy crafting!
