Good morning and welcome to the first Shopping Our Stash challenge. The first challenge is called Ribbon Rewind and you need to use your oldest ribbon or the color you have most of. If you would like some ideas or inspiration, you can visit SOS resources page where you'll find tons of links to beautiful ribbon creations and tutorials.
When I opened my ribbon drawer I realized I have loads of pink and green ribbon so I decided to use those and here is what I created:
I made lot's of twisted ribbon roses and secured them to a small foam wreath with hot glue. As you can see, I tried our different size and kind of ribbon, some were easier to work with than other. The empty spaces are filled up with Wild Orchid blossoms and added a little white butterfly.
It's already in use, hanging on our naturally rustic door (naturally rustic = old and flaky) ;)
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge - Anything Goes
Digi Design House - Anything but a card
Polka Doodles - Anything but a card
Fab 'n' Funky - make your own blooms
