Christmas ribbon stamps

Laura with her idea -
These would work well as decorations in a vintage-y Christmas scrapbook mini album.  I'm thinking layering, tabs to turn the pages, some sort of stamp opening/closing clasp...

This is why I love Crafty Ribbons - you just don't get ribbon as inventive as this anywhere else!


Carole Lockhart Stuart with her idea -
Hi Ali, I have Rudolf and the other reindeer digi`s by Meljiens Digi`s also ohter Christmas digis byt her.  I want to make a concertina card using all the images and linking them together.  This ribbon is just what I have been "dreaming of" I thiink it would make my project just perfect. Have a nice day all. love Carole Lockhart Stuart  SmileXXX


babys first christmas ribbon

Julie with her idea -
I'd use this to make tree decorations for the two babies I know who will celebrating their first Christmas this year, or maybe decorate bibs for them.


 Karen Jones - with her yummy idea
Think I'd use the snowman ribbon to go round my Christmas Cake, covered in black sugar paste with little white snowmen playing snowballs with a touch of edible glitter..........different!!


night before Christmas Ribbon

Marjorie Smith with her card idea
Hi Ali,I would use these gorgeous ribbons, as the focal point on my cards. You wouldn't need much else with them. They 'speak' for themselves. Well done for the design, you are soooo clever Ali.
Good luck to all, it will be a VERY lucky person who wins these baauties. Hugs Marjorie. x x


Claire Boelema with her sweetie idea -
Too cute!! I think my bank manager will most definitely be having words with you! I think I'd use this ribbon to decorate a jar of Cadbury's Snowballs Laughing


Joanne Edwards with her different wrapped parcels -
These are scrummy. I spotted them on Facebook a few minutes ago, before I had got my new blog post e-mail alert, and I came straight over to see them Smile This is definitely going to be a part of my one of my children's gift wrapping. (we do them all a different design, so we know whose is whose under the tree without labelling them all!) Only 98 days now until Christmas...:-D


Vintage Christmas ribbon

Cazzy with so many ideas!
They are beautiful and you could do so much with them, would love to make something to keep and use every year, maybe a Christmas cushion, or the aprons I keep thinking of! Then again they would make a wonderful keepsake box, or a Christmas card box to store cards in, or give a load of hand made cards as a present to someone to use.

WOW that was a lot of Freebie ribbons, I loved reading all your ideas, my mojo has been flagging a bit of late.  But I can feel a spark of inspiration from your ideas growing.  Thank you all so much for leaving your ideas and comments, I hope that some of them turn into reality.

Lots of Challenge parcels have arrived, so I will have great pleasure, opening and admiring them today.  I have left  the front of the exhibtion display empty ready for your creations.  We leave for Exeter Westpoint tomorrow morning, rather excited about showing everyone our new ribbons!!!!

Before I leave you for the week, (sorry have not pre-written any posts, Tony surprised with a trip to Lymington at the weekend.  It would have been rude to decline to write blog posts!!!!), but I must tell you about.....

bevs ribbon bag

Bev has a NEW  Ribbon Bag - just in time for Halloween!!  You can find it here

I missed out on Friday FREEBIE last week, I am not sure if I should confess why.......oh you will only laugh.
I am still on heavy medication for my thumb, they make me rather weird (nice weird) and incredibly forgetful - I forget what I am talking about part way through a conversation!!
well...............I forgot it was Friday!!!!

If you can forgive me for my lack of concentration (go on laugh) and can leave me a comment,  then we will have this weeks Friday FREEBIE of 4 Bev's bags - today and announce the winner next Tuesday.  If you are on my wave length then you will totally understand all that!!!!

Have a great week everyone and wish us luck with our first exhibtion of the Autumn Season.
