BONUS POST!

I promised Allison that I'd show her how to do the ribbon trick from a few cards back today--except I didn't have it ready this morning. So, this is today's second post, scroll down for my 'ample' fairy, k?




Here's the trick, with a little twist:





stamps: hero arts clings horizontal lines & branch background and sparkle clear classic messages
cardstock: PTI soft stone, aqua mist & smokey shadow
ink: brilliance graphite black by tsukineko & palette hybrid new canvas by stewart supeorior
accessories: offray grosgrain ribbon, crochet cotton, basicGrey button, clear tape, scor-tape 1/8", EK success corner rounder

COOL! I loop the thread under the ribbon, put it through the button holes, then tie the whole thing up at the same time. Yours looks easier. ;-)
