Hi Ribbons Unlimited Fans! Thank goodness it is finally Friday!!! We're in the final haul before we head to the full blown excitement of the holidays and today I thought I'd share a canvas with you that I created using some holiday leftovers from last year!
As you have probably noticed, I like to use crafty items in different ways and today's project is no exception. First of all I flipped over my canvas and created a reverse canvas. Why? Because I wanted some wood to show that would coordinate with the wood on my embroidery hoop. To create my border I used red satin ribbon (Double Face Satin Ribbon in Camellia Rose - 5/8") and laid it out so that it was right in the middle of the wood and white (leaving a little of each showing). I wanted a little bit of pattern to things so I then topped it off striped washi tape. My heart on my embroidery hoop is made up of tinsel garland that is attached to a big paper heart. Once I glued all the garland on I simply trimmed off the excess around the edges and then added a pearl border.
