So, onto our next challenge

The winner of this challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite way to add ribbon(& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I love using ribbon to hide the join between two designer papers and adding a double bow to top it off.  

I love to machine sew ribbon onto cards
why? because I think it adds a little texture too!

I love ribbon, yes, I'm a collector!  Honestly tho, I don't really use it a lot on my cards.  When I do, I like using it to add a bit of interest to my plainer cards.


I am not very good at making bows! So I like to take the easy way and wrap the ribbon around the card and then to tie a knot often with a charm attached.

**coming soon**

Looking back, I don't use as much ribbon as I thought, but when I do and there isn't room for a bow I like to just wrap it around the card in a matching colour.  I think it adds that little bit "extra".

I don't always use ribbon on my cards but when I do it will usually be coordinating seam binding which is wrapped around the card and a bow(made on my Ultimate Pro) added to the left hand side of the ribbon. I think it adds just the right amount of "pretty"!!

I like this ribbon, and I like this ribbon - but I don't like using ribbon!
Ribbon is my bête noire, always has been, probably always will be, so when it comes to using ribbon on cards I keep it as simple and painless as possible

I don't use ribbon very often because I never like the bow I create. But when I want to add a bow I wrap the ribbon around the card and make a bow separately and attach it on the ribbon.  In this case I added a little bow on top of the other one.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
showcase Your Favourite way to add ribbon(& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
