Craft-Dee Bowz Blog Hop

Hello! It's time for the second Blog Hop for Craft-Dee Bowz! We have some great Spring projects to share with you so we hope you hop along with us! You should have arrived here from the Craft-Dee Bowz Blog.

I've done two projects for this month using the beautiful ribbon, Prima butterflies and Prima paper! And of course the bows were made with my trusty Craft-Dee Bowz tool! The first project is a layout.



I used lots of Prima blooms, even some older ones that I had. I added some Ranger liquid pearls for the centers.

This is a close-up of the bow. I used a piece of each of the three colors of sheer ribbon, the pink, blue and teal, only one loop, but it makes a triple bow! And then I placed the butterfly on top!


I layered a couple of pieces of Prima chipboard and put a "3" on top for my three children. More Prima blooms here too.

For the next project, I did a card. I used a woven ribbon technique for a section on this card.. I just cut a piece of cardstock to the size I wanted and then did my ribbon weaving onto it, securing each end from behind. I added a bow using the pink and blue ribbons. I used the same Prima paepr and another butterfly.

 You can see the bow here. I used an Anna Griffin title sticker for this.

You can see a little more of the ribbon weaving here.

and here:
