Top Tip #53 - 2 or More....!

Hello everyone - missed me?!!! 

Cor blimey, no idea whatsoever where these past few months have gone - but hey, getting back into the swing of things and back on the blog!
This week at Top Tip Tuesday we have a fabulous ruffled ribbon border tutorial so our challenge this week is:

2 or more ribbons / lace / twine / fabric

Now, I have over the past few weeks started making things that aren't cards!  I did textiles at school and I have come to realise how much I love using fabric.  I am still trying to remember everything, but for this challenge I thought I would make something for my daughters bedroom.  I have never made one before so I am quite chuffed with how it turned out:

 Recipe: 4 lots of fabric (scraps) / ring from ebay/ wooden letter from ebay / butterfly (gift)

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crazy Challenge #56 - 3 Colours of Your Choice - Mine are pink, white and green
Fussy & Fancy - New Technique - I've never done a rag wreath before!

Please make sure that you pop by Top Tip Tuesday to see the two fabulous prizes we have on offer.

Thanks for stopping by!
