At Crafty Ribbons Challenge this fortnight the theme is use at least two ribbons. What a great theme for me... and I even managed to sneak some neon colour in!!
I came up with this...
When I joined the DT I decided I needed a note book to keep all my ribbony ideas in and to record what projects needed to be in on what date - I'm the Queen of notebooks and lists. :)
I had so much fun picking out which ribbons I would use. In the end I decided to do the front in a rainbow of colours and the back in black and white.
I took the plastic covers off a notepad. I had originally planned to cover them but the ribbon would not hold to the plastic no matter which glue I tried. I then simply stuck lengths of ribbon to the inner cover. I turned the page over and folded the ribbons over and stuck them down. To make it a bit more durable I covered the ends with a wide piece of grosgrain.
To provide a bit more protection and to replace the plastic cover that I had discarded I laminated an empty pouch. I cut around the plastic cover, rounded the corners and marked where the holes needed to be for the spine. I used my eyelet punch to cut them out. The slipped them back on to the spiral spine.
I can't possibly list all the ribbons I have used but they are all available here. If you have any questions or can't find them on the site just leave me a comment and I'll help you out.
I'm so pleased with this. I can see myself making more of these for gifts. The only thing I would do differently is not use the lilac and neon ribbon. It is a slightly different texture and the glue seeped through a little but I still love it!
I'd love to enter this in to Crafts and Me Challenges - ribbon or trim
