May Arts New Release Showcase

Once upon a new release ribbon launch I pulled the amazing 3/8 Inch Adhesive Velvet Ric Rac card and had the fun of playing with velvety adhesive ric rac. As alot of my brain naturally falls to sewing projects I had to alter my thinking and enjoy a new adventure.

3/8 Inch Adhesive Velvet Ric Rac comes in 10 fabulous colors but I must have been in a Christmas in July kinda mood when I worked on this project or else I just wanted a cohesive collection of projects either way it is a little Christmasy.

3 projects 1 ribbon...

 ATTENTION: Use a battery Powered candle! do NOT use a candle with real live flames ribbon is not flame retardant! Okay now that it is out of the way and you understand that I did NOT recommend open flame and ribbon, Layer 3/8 Inch Adhesive Velvet Ric Rac with other ribbons to create your own trims.

Space 3/8 Inch Adhesive Velvet Ric Rac to give the illusion of ric rac in between your trims. The use of negative space can add quite an impact take advantage of it it doesn't cost a thing!

Overlaping and staggering your points gives a fabulous scaley texture and dimension. Wrap the ends around the edge of a card stock base will leave you with no frayed edges.

I am sure there are a billion other ways to use 3/8 Inch Adhesive Velvet Ric Rac ... what would you do with them?

other May Arts ribbons  I used...
