I was so excited to receive some of the new elastic lace. I really wanted to show some of the many way’s this lace can be used. I created a layout, a quick and easy tank top for my daughter and an altered can. Check out my blog for more information.
3/8 Inch Adhesive Velvet Ric Rac is so fun and easy to use. I have used it overlapping to create full covered texture, spaced to create a ric rac with the negative space and layered on other ribbons for the perfect trim. Click here more details on each project!
There are so many uses of the paper raffia line offered by May Arts Ribbon beyond bows on packages. I love adding this lightweight, textured ribbon to cards. For this card, I created some lovely textured blooms by adhering different colored raffia to a rough circle cut from double sided adhesive concentrically.
This next card really showcases the texture of the raffia.Once again I pulled out double sided adhesive and layered raffia onto it, making sure there were no gaps between rows. I then die cut images out! Because the raffia is so thin, die-cutting was a breeze and the card can be easily mailed without additional postage.
Finally, I wanted to showcase the awesome, bright new colors offered in the raffia line! I chose to trim rows of dark blue, orange, lime green and forest green and adhere them to a card base only on one end. What a wonderful, festive and fun use of the raffia! I can imagine this technique working really well for graduation cards using school colors of raffia, or multiple colors for a fun and unique birthday card!
