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 
several cute wreaths and countdown calendars that I'd like to try myself :)
Whatever it is...have fun!

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
