Giveaway – A Ribbon Lady’s Wedding {winners!}

This Saturday, April 26th, I will be getting married.  And, lucky me, this will be followed by a very eagerly anticipated honeymoon at the beach!  So, I will be away from my desk for a little over a week.  But, fear not!  There will be a new dose of inspiration here each day for you!  So, I do hope you keep coming back while I’m gone.  And, naturally, I like to throw in a little incentive for ya.  😉

I’m going to give you a couple chances to win all week long.  

First up:

It wouldn’t really be very Ribbon Ladylike of me if I didn’t have at least some ribbony goodness at my wedding.  And I’m going to share some of them with you here, just because I love them so much.  And I hope you will too. 

Ribbon Wedding Bouquet

Ribbon Wedding Bouquet

This stunning wedding bouquet was made entirely out of May Arts Ribbon!   Those flowers were all made from our silk, crochet lace, pearls and the new burlap with a lace edge ribbon.  And, yes, it is even more beautiful in person!   This was a wedding present from my good friend and Royal Ribbonista Jen Shears.   It also included these matching boutonnieres.  One for my husband to be and one for our son:

Wedding Boutonnieres

Look how perfectly they match:

Matching Ribbon Wedding Bouquet and Boutonnieres

 

There’s one more ribbon craft I have to show you.  They are napkin rings made from burlap ribbon and paper cording:

Burlap Napkin Rings

It’s a beach wedding, so the entire table will be decorated with natural burlap & turquoise accents.  But I don’t have those pictures yet, so the napkin rings will have to do.  🙂 

 

Now for the giveaway bit: post a comment here.  That’s it!  Each comment will enter you to win one of two prizes up for grabs of a spool of ribbon – your choice

 

But that’s not all!  I will also award 3 more prizes of 1 spool for commenting on the rest of this week’s project posts. 

So, that’s a total of 5 chances to win!!! 

I will announce the winners right here on Monday May 5th, when I return from my honeymoon. 

Good luck, y’all!

    They remind me of the May Day dance. Do you celebrate May day in the USA? I used to go to the May Day carnival when I was a child. Great fun.
