RCC22 - Alter It

This week at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge RCC22 we're altering spooled items!  You can scrunch it, sew it, pucker it, fold it, make flowers and embellishments with it!

This week we have the super fun Cosmo Cricket as our sponsor...  

... and we were lucky enough to get some Glubers to play with! If you haven't come across Glubers before, they're super-sized super-sticky glue dots that are perfect for making flowers.  There are lots of tutorials online, some of my favourites can be found on YouTube HERE.

For one lucky participant, not only will you get your own Glubers….but you’ll also receive the Cosmo Cricket UPcycle Crafting Kit.

Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! 
*** Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***

And here's my card for this week.  I used the luscious 1" Blue/Green Reversible Satin Stitched Edge Ribbon, so I wanted to make a flower that would highlight the two gorgeous colours.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out!

I'm also entering this card into these challenges:
