Hello, Jessica here! Today I’m showing off some of the beautiful ribbon we received from our collaboration with May Arts Ribbons!
We’re nearing the end of July and it’s been hot enough around here recently that I’m ready for September/October now! Autumn is my favorite season and when I was looking at my ribbons I realized that several of them had a very autumn-themed color palette. So, imagine for a moment that it’s the beginning of October, the air is starting to get that crisp feel to it, and you’re out picking apples in an orchard with the anticipation of having a cinnamon spiced apple pie for dessert! That’s my inspiration for today’s project!
Baking is one of my other favorite hobbies and in a few months I plan to pick some honeycrisp apples at our local orchard and make some cinnamon apple nut muffins to stick in this bag as a gift! Now I just have to wait for the apples to ripen!
To start off I took the pretty gold metallic ribbon and wove it through the natural woven ladder ribbon. Then I wrapped it around the center of the bag, tucked it over the top of the bag, and used clear gift wrap tape to secure it inside. Next I die-cut a tag from Simon Says Stamp Chocolate cardstock, stamped the sentiment on it with versamark, and heat-embossed the sentiment with Hero Arts gold embossing powder. I stamped the apple from Hero Art’s Stamp Your Own Fruit onto white cardstock and used copic markers to color my apple. I also added a little shine with a wink of stella clear glitter brush. I fussy cut the apple and adhered it to the tag with foam mounting tape. I punched a hole in the top of the tag and used the gold metallic ribbon and another ribbon with little copper bows to attach the tag to the bag. I love the various textures of the ribbons and how nicely they compliment each other!
