I admit it.
I am a ribbon junkie.
I love all the colors it comes in.
I love all the textures, the widths it's available in.
And I especially love the texture it adds to a project.
A touch of ribbon adds that finishing touch to any project, card or layout that instantly adds soft texture that is perfection.
I am so happy that Lawn Fawn and May Arts have joined forces this week. Here is a fun ribbon stocking ornament I whipped up that is sure to color to our Christmas tree and a smile to our faces for many years to come!
To create the ornament:
I first selected a bunch of May Arts ribbons that I thought I might use for the stocking.
Next, cut a piece of cardstock big enough to die cut the stocking.
Cover the entire surface of the cardstock with a very sticky strong adhesive. You don't want any of the ribbons falling off.
Starting at the top or bottom (I started from the bottom) start layering on ribbon...
... until you've covered the entire surface of the cardstock.
I added some extra frills and lace over the top using a Craft Glue Adhesive.
Once the glue is dry, die cut the stocking. You will want to be sure and use a steel rule die (i.e. Sizzix dies) for this project so that you ensure the die will cut through the many layers of ribbon easily.
How cute is this?!!!!
For the stamping portion of this project I grabbed a couple colors of green ink and layered them to stamp some branches from the Lawn Fawn Ornate Ornaments Stamp Set.
Then I stamped a branch from the Lawn Fawn Bows & Holly set and colored it in with Copics before cutting it out.
I also stamped a tag and greeting from the Bows & Holly stamp set on kraft cardstock, distressing it with Studio Calico Mister Huey White Ink.
I die cut the remaining pieces of the stocking, plus another stocking from off-white felt and stitched the whole thing together.
Trinket pins, a die cut felt poinsettia and Doodlebug button complete the ornament!
