A Quick Make



I've been a really bad blogger this week, but life has been pretty hectic and I've just not found the time to do much crafting. Hopefully I can return to normal next week as I miss my crafting. I made this quick and easy Ribbon Holder. Doesn't look much in the photos to be honest but I have it hanging in my conservatory and its quite pretty. All I did was cover an empty kitchen roll tube with paper (BG I think), added ribbon to the sides (DCVW) and added some Prima Flowers. Each ribbon has been attached by placing a little piece of double sided tape to one end then wrapping the ribbon around the tube. When that piece has finished, I can then just attach a new ribbon. I've threaded some fibres threw the tube and knotted so it will hang freely.

IS ANYONE ELSE HAVING PROBLEMS VIEWING BLOGS? I SEEM TO BE GETTING ALOT OF INCOMPLETE PAGES, GET THE HEADER AND SIDEBAR BUT NO PICCIES OR TEXT, UMM, DONT THINK BLOGGERS PLAYING BALL AT THE MOMENT! LETS HOPE HE SORTS HIMESELF OUT VERY SOON, I've given up blog hopping on several occassions.

Fantastic idea for a ribbon holder Claire, love it.
Yes blogger has been playing up for me too over the past few days, mainly with word verification, which seems sorted now, but this morning the followers list seems to be all weird, not sure if it's a new version or blogger just gone mad again..lol.
