A Candy Colored Craft Challenge

*This Challenge is Closed*

Welcome to our March Craft Challenge!   I took a good amount of time to consider what I wanted to do for this month’s theme.   I knew, after the dreary winter days & holiday colors, I wanted something bright & fun!  So, I turned to Pinterest for inspiration & stumbled upon this photo:

Bright, fun, colorful – everything I wanted in a spring themed challenge!   Then, I set off to find some ribbon to match:

Pretty darn close, eh?  I thought so!  😀

I will send out 2 yards of each ribbon shown above to each participant.  The design is completely your choice, as long as you use these ribbons.  And yes, I want you to use all 4! 


Here are the details:

  • We will provide you with 2 yards each of the ribbon shown to work with.
  • You will have approximately one month to complete a ‘Candy Colored’ craft project.  Any craft design will be admissible, as long as you use each ribbon we provide you with.   You are limited only by your own imagination.   **Please note your idea must first be approved by The Ribbon Lady…don’t worry I’m pretty easy going! ;-)**
  • The number of participants is limited to 25 people.  The participants will not be selected on a first come first serve basis, but based upon your idea.  So take your time before you send in your email, as you will have about a week to submit it.
  • One winner will be selected and awarded 4 full spools of ribbon.  Your choice!
  • 10 additional entries will win a prize of 1 full spool of ribbon.  Your choice!
  • To Enter: Email me at [email protected] with your idea & contact information.  If selected, I will mail out your ribbon to work with.   When you have completed your project, forward me a photo with a brief description of your project.   Or, better yet, send a video of your design & I will post it on the blog.
  • Deadline: April 13th, 2012.  Winners will be announced on April 20th, 2012.

Good luck to all!

    I want to make a recipe book for my daughter using all these beautiful colors of ribbons.  The book will be approx. 8 X 7 with covered chipboard dividers, cover and back.  I will use rings to hold it together and use ribbon to decorate the rings.  I will use ribbon to decorate the pages with the recipes on then, almost as though each page was a small layout.  My daugher would love those colors and I would love the chance to work with them. Looking forward to having some beautiful ribbon to play with.  Thank you for the opportunity to apply!
