Deck the Halls with Burlap – November Challenge!

Welcome to our November Craft Challenge!   I know I say this every month, but I really do look forward to these challenges!  I am always amazed at the wonderful talent that you all have! 


With the holidays right around the corner, the theme was obvious this time around.  But I still wanted to narrow it down a bit – enter burlap.  Burlap is so hot, hot, hot right now and I just know that it will make for some fab Christmas projects! 


So without further hesitation, here is the ribbon you will get to work with:



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 it is a Christmas theme.  And yes, I want you to use all 4! 


Here are the details:

  • We will provide you with the ribbon shown to work with. 
  • You will have approximately one month to complete a Christmas 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.  So send in your requests soon!  These challenges fill up quick!

  • 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. 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: December 12th, 2011.  Winners will be announced on December 21st, 2011.

Good luck to all!
