May Arts just released more fabulous ribbon in 2014! New textures, new colors & best of all – new inspiration! You can check out the new releases here, and the Ribbonistas are featuring projects using these beauties all week long, with each Ribbonista has been assigned one new series to play with. Of course, there is a prize up for grabs by commenting on the May Arts Blog and visiting participating designer blogs: 3 prizes of 1 spool each from our new releases. That’s 3 chances to win!
I had the pleasure to work with the new colors of the Paper Raffia Line (Series JPP).
I love making card and featuring ribbon on them. My first card (above) features three new colors as flowers. A card without a lot of bulk! I took some double side adhesive and wound the raffia on it, and simply adhered the blooms to a previously stamped card base.
My last card featured a fun and playful way to use the paper raffia on a card! I attached a strip of double sided adhesive to a card base and just layered a bunch of strips of the raffia on top! I finished the card with the fun mini poms in black.
I really enjoyed working with the paper raffia outside of tying bows on packages, which is also a perfect use of the paper raffia! I hope you enjoy seeing all the projects and make sure you check out the new releases on the May Arts Blog and leave a comment!
