May Arts Halloween Hop!

Welcome to the May Arts Ribbonista Halloween Blog Hop!
I've been amazed by the projects so will wrap things up, so if you
missed Monday through Thursday, visit the May Arts' blog...
will be given away to a really-lucky commentor!

Today's hop includes the following designers (in order):
I wanted to do something a little different for my design today. 
I love holiday bunting...I have a couple of different things for 4th of July and
Christmas, but I really wanted a piece that would go along with my Halloween decor.
From lengths of wired ribbon, I fashioned my own unique bunting!

This is how I went about making the bunting:
5- 18" lengths of 1.5" Solid/Pom Pom Edged Wired Ribbon 
6 Yards of 1.5" Solid Checkered Wired Ribbon
Sewing machine and/or fabric glue

First, cut your pom pom ribbon into the 18" lengths.
Gently pull one of the wires from either side; leave the other wire in place.
Form each piece into a "U" shape as shown above

Next, decide how wide you would like for the piece to be.  
Taking 3 yards (more/less if desired) of the check ribbon, begin gluing the loops to the
front of the check ribbon.  Make sure that you leave about 24" of check ribbon at each end
so that it can be tied into a large bow.  
Once all of the loops have been glued to the front of the check ribbon, attach
the second section (3 yards) on top by matching up the two pieces.  
You may use fabric glue for this or machine stitch the two checkered ribbons together:

Add a small piece of wire to each side (behind the bow) so that it can be attached to 
a railing or hung from a hanger.

The cute pom pom ribbon also comes in a black ribbon with orange pom poms...and
a huge variety of other colors, especially if you're thinking ahead to Christmas :)

I hope that you've found a couple of projects that you'd like to give a try...there are

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
