Crafty Goodness a la Holiday Cards and More

I am sure you have seen a lot of chatter about the latest issue Holiday Cards and More, Vol 5 This is my FAVOURITE annual issue from Paper Crafts Magazine. I was very fortunate to have quite a few projects picked up for this issue too.  I am sharing my favourite submission below and you can find it on page 127 of the magazine (and you can find another one of my creations on the opposite page 126).  You'll also note that I LOVE my PTI ribbon!!

Wow, I LOVE this wreath! Wonderful colour combo and great way to use up little snippets. Oh, it's so fabulous...

I LOVE this wreath, how many rolls (or yards) of ribbon did it take, I'd like to make one, and I need to know how much to get!

Alli Miles said...

I am not 100% sure because some of my rolls were already partly used but I definitely went through 3 full and a few others halfs...it was a lot of ribbon but it was worth it. I love how it turned out :)

Janelle said...

Love the wreath, Alli. Thought I'd also let you know that I highlighted a technique I learned from you for this month's PTI blog hop... http://showandtellblog.typepad.com/show-and-tell/2010/09/september-papertrey-ink-blog-hop.html#tp
Thanks for all the inspiration you've provided me with!

Audrey said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I am definately going to make one for myself and one as a gift for Christmas. Gorgeous!!

Deb C said...

Wow! Since I have a wee problem with buying thousands of yards of ribbon from the Offray ribbon outlet, I see quite a few of these in my future as gifts. Pepper in a bit of PTI satin dot ribbon will be just the right touch.

Thanks so much for sharing.
