I’m honored and excited to be a guest designer for 3 Girl JAM!

When I saw all the beautiful ribbons and fibers in the shop, it was hard to choose what I wanted to work with, but I was drawn to the textures of the jute. The colors are so vibrant and natural. I had to have them! I picked them up not quite knowing what I wanted to do with them.

As I was adding water to my plant cuttings, I decided they needed a new home – a pretty home! I found an interesting shaped glass vase at the Dollar Tree and inspiration hit. I used my ATG gun to make four evenly-spaced lines down the sides of the vase and began wrapping with the natural colored jute ribbon. A glue dot provided the adhesive for the very end of the ribbon, and the coffee jute string made a pretty bow.

I also picked up the Coffee Bundle of crinkled ribbon and can’t wait to play with that!

    Oh yes…love it….you got my juices going and I would love to do that for some sprigs. I could use that ivy by the way. Ps. My iMac hard drive die and display is black so something else is also wrong. I’m having withdrawals not having computer.
