Ribbon Storage Idea

I had this ribbon box out so I figured I would snap a picture of it and show it. This is a cropper hopper box that has dividers in it. I bought the tiny cropper hopper cases that are common for small embellishments. I pulled all my ribbon off the spools and wound them in a tight circle, slid them in the little cases and left a tail of ribbon hanging out of the top. You don't have to open the boxes to get the ribbon out, just pull on the tail and out it comes. Here is a picture of the little containers that the ribbon is in.

Luggage Tags

I made these luggage tags using badge tags I picked up at the dollar store in packs of 10. I think they worked perfectly. The holes are already in the top and I tied ribbon through them. Our full address is on the tags, but I photo shopped them out for posting purposes. Here is one side:

This is the other side. I attached them to the suitcase handles using book rings.

Stamping On Rulers

A while back I was at AC Moore and saw these rulers for $1.00 and said to myself "I bet I could stamp that". If you are a stamper I am sure you can relate to that phrase while looking at something. LOL I bought just one (I will now be going back for more) and this is what I did to it. (Try clicking on the picture to make it bigger for a better view). The center strip on the ruler that I stamped is wood. I used black and red StazOn ink to stamp the images. Then I figured coloring in the flowers would be best with sharpie markers, but I didn't care for the darkness of the ink on the ruler. So I went with colored pencils. It can be a little tricky because of the grain of the wood, but I think it came nice. If I were going to use this ruler I would probably coat the wood with a layer of Mod Podge. The stamp sets used were double line doodles and Garden Whimsy, from the new Stampin Up catalog.

Altered Dominoes

These are little dominoes I stamped. They caught a glare from the flash so they look a little fuzzy. Stamping on domino's is on my list of things to do so I did it. These are really small dominoes I found at one of the dollar stores. I think they would make great pins.
