Ribbon instead of paper on acrylic

I have a bit of a ribbon fetish….is there Ribbon-lovers anonymous? 

Just kidding….I have no intentions of quitting my hoarding.

I did, however, jump at the chance to use these lovely Ruffled ribbon strips from Pink Paislee….everywhere and anywhere I could, until it was all used up.  On this Noel Acrylic Tri-fold frame from Clear Scraps, I used 4 different kinds of ribbon – working them all together so that I didn’t even need any patterned paper for the whole project.  In fact, If I had had my photos ready for this frame, I wouldn‘t have needed any cardstock to hold my places either.  The ruffled ribbon made the perfect base-border for my frame.  I also added the large jeweled broach from Pink Paislee to the bow at the top of my silver acrylic bells.

In addition to the Pink Paislee ribbon and broach, I also used ribbon from May Arts and  Creative Impressions,   silver paint from Delta, silver leafing pen from Krylon, jewels from Imaginisce, and rub-ons and chipboard letters from Heidi Swapp.
