May Arts

I don't know about you guys, but I love May Arts. They are my go to ribbon for most of my projects and I love to find new and creative ways to use it. So when I saw this month's contest, I had to go for it.

AND I just love love big huge ribbon. I have been wanting to try something with the May Arts 2" grossgrain.

So here is what I came up with....So can you tell what the coffee container is??? Haha, I had some fun with it...I hope you like it. It just kinda popped into my head and I ran with it.


I upcycled this fun heart bubble gum container, altered a paper bag and to go coffee container with some May Arts ribbons and Teresa Collins papers and stamps. OH and make sure you check out the sparkley red glitter paper. It's the NEW glimmer silk from Core'dinations. It's aMaZiNg!!!


So first...click here to enter the give-a-way. Just by commenting on your favorite entry, you can win THREE spools of May Arts ribbon! Now, click here to tell them your favorite!!!




Some how my tutorial directions didn't make it to the blog so there they are. I used Glue Arts Pro Glider because it works great on ribbon. 1.) Adhere it with a few strips around the cup up until the last 1/4 inch of the ribbon on either side. 2 & 3) Now, fold back each side with a snippet of glue on both sides. 4.) Now, it needs to fold over so it looks like it's buttoned so add some more adhesive and 5.) fold. Now you can embellish the rest of your project to coordinate. (step 6)



Have a great week!!!!!!!

You did an amazing job showcasing the gorgeous May Arts ribbons. I love them, too. Still remember their fabulous booth at CHA the one time I went several years ago. It was one of my favorite booths. :)
