A BOX


I used this fab ribbon tutorial by Connie to create my rose for my gift box.  It worked beautifully with 25mm Old Rose Satin Ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.


I used Acrylic paint to give the box a distress look and also to add texture to the die cut heart.

It's a good job I've got lots of ribbons, I'm still trying to make a rose!!!! I've watched the little video so many times I'm speaking in American!! I just think I'm nearly there - then it all goes pear shaped (instead of rose shaped :) I'll practice some more tomorrow. Mary G
