Paper Bauble Flowers Tutorial

Paper Bauble Flowers Tutorial

After finishing my first real binding project for the Bind-it-All class that I am taking online at My Creative Classroom, I decided to embellish it with one of my handmade vintage-gungre-shabby-chic bauble flowers.

These are so much fun and easy to make, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try my hand at another YouTube tutorial video. After completing the video I came to the conclusion that I…
#1 need a script and
#2 talk entirely too much
The video ended up being around 20 minutes long….which resulted in editing it into two seperate videos. Instead of bringing subscribers and followers to my YouTube Channel and Blog it will probably send the masses to the streets in protest against my membership to blogdomhood and YT.

Nevertheless, I have spent an entire day video recording and editing the videos….so I am darn well going to share them…haha!

And the second half is here….if I haven’t lost you already!

Help! My Ribbons Over-Floweth Profusely

Help! My Ribbons Over-Floweth Profusely

Help! My Ribbons Over-Floweth! How in the world did it come to this? How did five or six rolls of ribbon and trim turn into this? In an attempt to have all ribbons in one place and color coordinated, I removed them from their round thingies (real technical word there for spool, right?). The rounds were taking up too much room, and I had nothing that was big enough to hold it all…much less have it organized.

If you saw my scraftin’ room youtube then in the very first photos of my mess of a room, you saw all the ribbon hanging from a window treatment rod. That wasn’t working for me, so I hung them inside a cabinet. Eventually, I came to the conclusion that was a total waste of very useable space…so back to the drawing board (youtube) I went. Seems a lot of ladies store their ribbon hanging just like mine, but why does theirs look so cute and mine looks like a flippin’ mess?

I started adding them to self-adhesive hooks on the side of one of my cabinets (NO wall space) but soon realized it was not going to be wide enough to hold all my color choices. My dressform has been standing in as a holder for a short while, but that is NOT what I had intended when I purchased her.

So, here I am, just a simple scrafter…coming to you… my few readers… to help me solve my dilema. What should I do? How do you store your ribbon and trim? Am I a total hoarder? With no hope of organization? I throw myself upon the mercy of blogdomhood and hope that I will be blessed with a (inexpensive) solution….very soon!

Since we are empty nesters now, we do not decorate for Easter as we did when Hais and JMorgan were li’l darlins. So in following our new tradition of decorating the tree that is still up in our family room, I added little bunnies for a festive touch. At Valentine’s the tree was covered in kraft and dark red hearts and for St. Patrick’s it was shamrocks with faux stitching around the outer edges. Everything was cut with my Cricut Expressions.

Hais was home for a short weekend visit, so I decided to make some sorority door decorations for her dorm room at the house. The following Cricut Cartridges were used to complete this project:
A Child’s Year
Cherry Limeade
Designer’s Calendar
Easter 2010

Of course, it only seemed fitting to make matching door decs for Hais’ sorority sisters, as well.
