K-Notebook :: 3GJ Challenge

Today, I'm sharing a project, not a card, for my niece Kamryn.   I bought this small notebook at Joann's for a buck.  I only picked up two --now I'm going back for more.  This is super simple and if you're like me, you save all those little scraps of ribbon that weren't quite long enough for a card and can reuse them on this type of project.

All the letters are cut from MCT lower case alphabet dies.  I cut them twice using black and purple, Kamryn's favorite colors, and off set them to look like a shadow.
Then I cut ribbon appx 3 inches in length.  I used four different types of ribbon. I tied all four to every other ring, but tied them in different patterns so it looked all mixed up...for instance if I tied a solid purple first, on one ring, I'd use it last on the next ring etc. You'll know what I mean once you get going on it.  HINT: I used a pair of tweezers to help get the ribbon through the slots.  After I was finished I touched it up by trimming off some of the longer pieces of ribbon until it looked, well, Perfect! :-)

Speaking of ribbon...I'm entering this project into the 3 Girl Jam Challenge :: Anything Goes with Ribbon. I thought this project was definitely fitting for this challenge.  There's still plenty of time to enter Click HERE for more info and to enter.

That's it for now...have a great weekend.
