September Craft Challenge – A Happy Accident!


I’m so excited to be bringing you a new Craft Challenge this month!   I look forward to these challenges & cannot wait to see what everyone creates! 

Every once in a while, we get a batch of ribbon in that is very beautiful…….just not what we ordered.  Let’s call it a happy accident!   Well, this time I wanted to share some of them with all of you!   


Our happy accident ribbon:


I will send out 3 yards of each ribbon shown above to every participant.  The design is completely your choice, as long as you use these ribbons.  And yes, I want you to use all 4! 



Here are the details:

  • We will send you 3 yards of each ribbon pictured above. 
  • You will have approximately one month to complete a craft project.  Any craft design will be admissible, as long as you use each ribbon we provide you with.   You are limited only by your own imagination.   **Please note your idea must first be approved by The Ribbon Lady……don’t worry I’m pretty easy going! 🙂**
  • The number of participants is limited to 25 people.  So send in your requests soon!  These challenges fill up quick!
  • One winner will be selected and awarded 4 full spools of ribbon.  Your choice!
  • 10 additional entries will win a prize of 1 full spool of ribbon.  Your choice!
  • To Enter: Email us at [email protected] with your idea & contact information. We will promptly mail out your ribbon to work with.   When you have completed your project, forward us a photo with a brief description of your project.   Or, better yet, send us a video of your design & we will post it on the blog.
  • Deadline: October 10th, 2011.  Winners will be announced on October 21st, 2011.
