Ribbon Craft Challenge


My creative friend Heidi at Blue Eyed Blessings has a monthly craft challenge. This month the challenge is for us to craft something with ribbon! Well, when I made some of Bakerella's cake pops I was trying to figure out how I would present them. I thought about buying a mug to send them in. I really wanted to send them the next day, and wasn't up to running to town 20 minutes away for an ordinary mug.
I then remembered I had saved some tin cans. I spray painted the can to match the cake pops. Found some cute ribbon that would coordinate. I also tied pink and brown ribbon around the cake pops. This is the simple, frugal idea I came up with to give to my son's teacher for Teacher Appreciation week. It was a lot of fun, and she loved it!





I also made a prayer journal last year. My DH sent me away for some alone time. He put me up in a nice hotel. Time for me...time to grow closer to the Lord...time to fill my cup...time to be rejuvenated! It was wonderful and a perfect time to make my journal. I bought a plain notebook. Covered it with scrapbook paper. Then, I used a beaded ribbon to embellish my journal...I love it!


Want to see more fabulous, fun ribbon projects...be sure to stop by Heidi's!


Have a great day!

Your can is very cute, I know that teacher appreciated that you took time to make something yourself and do it up so pretty!

I just love your crafts!! And your husband sending you away for some time alone at a hotel? Wow! THAT's a keeper guy!

Really enjoyed your music and your testimony, too. Thanks for your kind comments at Jade Hollow. :)

Creative, frugal, and a whole lot of cuteness! Rhonda, this is great! I love the pink and brown colors and I mostly love that you didn't buy something just to buy it (because you know that mug probably would have gone in the pile of mugs that a teacher collects...don't you have a collection? ;) Now she can use it for a pencil holder! Perfect!

I love the idea of going away...just you. Spending time alone so that you can rest with God and enjoy some of that time together. The prayer journal is beautiful and the beaded ribbon is such a nice touch!

I'm so glad you joined in this month's craft challenge! It was fun to see you...sorry it took me a little bit to come and visit.

Have a great start to your week!

Great ideas! I love the prayer journal idea a lot!

I saw your high school cheer pic and was wondering where you graduated from?

Kasey said...

the reason I asked is because if it is where I'm thinking we might have played each other in High School if you graduated around 1998.

Kasey said...

Yes that is where I was thinking! Do you still live there?
