CAS-ual fridays: ribbon

Hi peeps!

This is my 3rd day of keeping all the kids at home... on the up side, everyone is starting to feel better... but I didn't want a repeat of yesterday, where Sofia lost her breakfast on the school bus riding into school.  Poor kid. And also, I felt like parent-of-the-year.  Whoever had to clean the bus probably thought so too...

Onto the crafting.

I thought I'd throw my hat in the CAS-ual Fridays ring.  I'm not much of a ribbon gal - I mean, I hoard the stuff, but just don't use it much.  But as I watched a PVR-d episode of Top Chef, I decided I meant ribbon-business.  I present to you: ribbon, 3 ways.

1. I cut out a cardboard ring (using circle punches) and wrapped green ribbon around the entire thing.
2. A huge, floppy, gauzy bow at the top.
3. Pom-pom ribbon trim, rolled into a makeshift flower.


Ribbon challenge, accepted.  and served.


  1. beautiful card! I think we've all been there with the sick kid & feeling terrible about it....I once took my little one to the credit union even though I knew he wasn't feeling great, and he did you-know-what right in front of the counter! They still comment on it when I come in

  2. Beautiful card using ribbon!!!

    Hope your kids feel better soon!

  3. This is so pretty, I love how you have wrapped the ribbon round the ring.

  4. Elena, I have some of that pom pom trim, but haven't used it. i could never seem to make it work on a card. But now I can see many pom pom flowers in my future!! Thanks for the inspiration!! Such a creative and unique take on the challenge!!
