I will talk more about that at the end of this post with some pictures of my new ribbon storage for ALL the new ribbon I got from the PTI sale!!
On to the Build a Birdhouse Challenge:
Papertrey Ink has been having Anniversary Challenges since the 5th and I have been
plugging away at them each day. I made my birdhouse last night but never linked it
because I wanted to post it here on my blog as opposed to Flickr where you can find
my other pictures from the challenges.
After I cut the pattern out that Nichole provided, I stamped Polka Dot Basics with Versamark
and heat embossed it using Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing Powder. That is one of my favorite powders for sure! I also took Nichole's advice and used the scalloped rectangle Spellbinders
die for the roof , I made the wood grain paper by using Elmer's glue and inking the paper after it
dried. Then I cut it out with the scalloped rectangle die.
I thought it came out cute! I used Hawaiian Shores CS and it looks nice with the
freshly painted walls although you can't tell in these pictures.
I am sad to see us at the end of the Anniversary festivities but I had a great time creating!
Here is my ribbon storage:
even cut it for me in different lengths so it would fit between my shelf brackets!
flap is just the right angle to hold the spools of ribbon on the "shelf".
Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
