DT Challenge Finalist – Jinky Kowalski


Congratulations to finalist Jinky Kowalski of Jinky's Crafts for her FRAMED RIBBON  SPRING FLOWER tutorial:



Finally, my project entry for the MayArts challenge is done~! I am so happy with the final outcome of this project. I am proud to present to you my Framed Ribbon Spring Flowers! Don't you just love how bright and beautiful everything looks in Springtime? I LOVE it! 

 Ribbon manipulation is new to me, but it is a new passion I have developed over the past few weeks. I love how paper and fabric complement each other. 



All ribbons used on this Challenge project were compliments of MayArts. This is my entry for their DT Call Craft Challenge, which had a theme requirement of Spring Flowers. I used the Flat Rose and Spider Web techniques for my roses. I just learned how to do these while working on this project. I will be providing you with a tutorial soon so please check back.

May Arts Ribbon Used :

  • Yellow Rose: HA27


For those of you who know me, you probably know by now that I love 3D projects.  That is why I tried to make this in 3D. I cut some butterflies to adorn my Spring Flowers and weaved a basket which I intentionally raised to have that 3D effect.  I leave the top of the basket open so you can add some batting to poof it up or some moss (Sorry,  I don't have any handy). 



This project makes a great home decor this Spring season or a great gift for Mother's Day.  That's why I included a Happy Mother's Day sentiment cut out on the frame. 

This project is very easy. If I can do it being a newbie on ribbon folding, I bet you can to. C'mon give it a try~!
