Rainbow Inspired Craft Challenge Inspiration
If you haven’t heard, we just announced our Rainbow Inspired Craft Challenge! We will be providing 20 participants with a selection of these ribbons:
to create a craft project with!
Maybe you love the ribbons, but aren’t quite sure what to do with them yet. Or maybe you just love to see some gorgeous ribbon crafts…or both! 🙂 Well, either way, the Ribbonistas have gotten together to give you a healthy dose of inspiration.
If you are interested in participating, go ahead & email me your idea!
When I saw the fun ribbons that were chosen for this challenge, it reminded me of all of the bright colors in a garden – So I was inspired to make a flower pot card. The pot is like a pocket, and the flowers are attached to a tag that slips into the pot, and can be removed to write a message.
I had so much fun with the fun rainbow ribbons I received that I went a little overboard and decided to create a fun dreamcatcher. I used all the ribbons from the challenge and a bunch more from my stash it was easy to create this fun project.
This box awaits a sweet treat to be complete but the jewel on top is what makes this so delightful. Wrapped in silk and raffia ribbons and a stack of flowers with chevron leaves this gift will be fabulous no matter what the box contains.
I adore the wide range of May Arts Ribbon-not only in the types of ribbon they offer but the colors too! I broke down the rainbow inspiration ribbon into hot and cool tones. Each clean and simple card features a focal point May Arts Ribbon Embellishments with a button, a white card base and die cut greeting-all to make that ribbon really shine!
I found this a real challenge. I love the rainbow idea for sure, but the different texture and ribbons threw me for a small loop. I ended up creating a fun A2 sized desk calendar. I chose some simple Echo Park paper to match my ribbon. You can see for the yellow I pulled the butterflies off the ribbon and used them as singles. For the purple I created a quick ruffle on my sewing machine. I then finished the cards off with an SRM sticker calendar. I used 3D adhesive to raise the square calendar up. Here is the first six months. I’ll just create a second set for the other six. Keep it fun and easy. Thanks for looking.
Before beginning my layout, I designed the large heart and then planned out how I would use the remaining ribbon/trim on the page. I like to use ribbon to create borders, flowers and of course bows, so I kept those elements in mind as I proceeded in creating. I love all of the texture, softness and bright colors that it brings to my colorful photo!
I love all things rainbow, especially organizing my ribbon wall in ROYGBIV order, so when the Ribbon Lady put out the call for a rainbow inspired challenge, I was all in! I used both plain and wired paper ribbons to braid a head wreath (custom sized to fit my daughter’s big noggin), and stitched on a colorful variety of ribbons for streamers. I stitched May Arts blue flower blossoms onto some sheer blue organza ribbon, and I transferred the yellow butterflies off of the wide ribbon they were on to a more narrow satin ribbon (after dying it yellowish peach for the project). I love how it turned out, and so does my little forest fairy!
