Ah the 80's, the time that style forgot! That's me in the pink, black and white party dress! I wanted to scrap this photo of my 3rd birthday because I think I look like a proper brat in it! The BasicGrey Challenges blog encouraged me to recycle some things with their recent challenge. I had lots of ribbons that had been used to wrap up some things I bought online. They weren't great quality but were pretty so I decided to make little ribbon flowers out of them. I really like how they turned out and they didn't take too long. To make them, I punched out a circle, covered it in really sticky tape (use Scor-tape or ATG gun) and stuck the end of a ribbon to it. Then you just keep twisting the ribbon in a circle and sticking it down firmly. I added some Prima bling to the centres to finish them off. The number 3 is die cut from PTI Raspberry Fizz felt and the letters are a selection of American Craft Thickers. The little russian dolls strip is a roll of patterned sticky tape I got from Accessorize in the sales. The background paper is from the Basic Grey Sultry collection. Thanks for looking!
Three months until my new home!
