Don’t these colors just make you drool?

May Arts issued a challenge to crafters to use these springtime ribbons in a project.  The colors are so yummy and juicy, how could I resist?

After approving my idea, May Arts sent me two yards of each of the above ribbons.


I decided to make scrapbook embellishments and did a layout with several photos from my granddaughter’s first year. (Click on any of the pics to see a bigger version.)

To make the border strips, I covered a 12″ x 6″ piece of scrap cardstock with adhesive, then applied the ribbons in diagonal stripes.  One edge was cut with the Scallops On The Edge Die.  The rest of the strips were cut with a rotary cutter.

You’ll have to use steel rule dies, a rotary cutter or sharp scissors to cut out this beribboned cardstock.  A regular paper trimmer or wafer thin dies won’t be able to handle it.


The flowers were made similarly by covering 5″ x 5.5″ cardstock with ribbon and then die cutting with the Tattered Florals Die.  I also cut leaves with the Tattered Leaves die and the banner with the Styled Labels Die.

The paper flowers might be by Prima, I’m not sure, but I know all the papers are from either My Mind’s Eye’s Everyday Tango paper pack or Die Cuts with a View’s Nana’s Kids paper stack.


Happy Creating!

  1. Tutti frutti galore! I love how the ribbon colors coordinate with several of her outfits. I bet you did that deliberately. 🙂
