May Arts Projects

I’m back with a few more projects to show off some more great May Arts ribbon!
First off, I’ve made a couple of soldered pendants.  What better to string them on than beautiful silk ribbon?  And by simply changing the color they are given a completely different look!  Take a peek:

Next, I’ve created a really fun little notebook.  Using cardstock, stamps & ink you can really personalize these!  Take a look at the closure- I used a ½’ punch & eyelets to create the office look here- and the 1/32” jute/burlap makes a much more interesting thread, don’t you think?  Truth-be-told, that jute is really a go-to tool for me!

And how about a little pre-Halloween fun?  Here I’ve used little strips of Making Memories’ Spook Alley paper, distressed them & machine sewed them on.  Those satin cut-out witches are SO fun, and a very quick way to add a lot of wow to your card!  I topped it off with a button, threaded with (you guessed it!) that great jute string!
