Welcome to the May Arts blog. The Ribbon Lady challenged us with a Candy Colored Inspiration photo and some yummy May Arts ribbon to match.
First up is my thrifty Easter basket. I nearly fell over when I saw the prices of real wicker baskets so I headed to my local thrift store where I found this sweet little basket for under a $1.
- May Arts 1/8 inch Light Blue Velvet
- May Arts 1 inch Hot Pink Grosgrain Satin Edge
- May Arts 5/8 inch Orange Double Band Satin Grosgrain
- May Arts Yellow 5/8 inch Solid/Plaid
- Optional- primer/paint
- Hot glue/glue gun
I gave it a coat of white primer and white spray paint, then wove the Candy Colored ribbons through the wicker and tied them in a simple square knot. I gathered the Hot Pink Grosgrain on the sewing machine then hot glued it to the basket prior to tying the knot.
Next, I decided to wrap some plastic eggs filled with jelly beans and chocolate eggs and tie them up with the candy colored ribbons.
- Clear plastic egg carton
- May Arts Ribbons
- Stamps – Papertrey Ink
Finally, I used the very last of the ribbons to make a quick card to complete my little Easter gift.
- May Arts Ribbon
- Stamps – Rubbernecker Stamps
