LARGE RIBBON SPOOL...............FREE FILE

So most people who know me KNOW that I LOVE RIBBON............skinny, fat, dark, light, pattern, plain......whatever......I LOVE IT ALL.........

Recently I posted on facebook that if anybody wanted to TRUST me I would do a little RIBBON SHOPPING for them. There is this store about 1/2 hour from me that has some of the most pretty ribbon and it is only $1.00 A YARD.....

I had a few girls take me up on the offer so a SHOPPING I WENT....I think I pretty much clean the store out. It isn't a ribbon store, so I took a lot of their inventory...No need to worry the clerk told me though because they are placing a new order soon............CAN WAIT TO SEE THE NEW STUFF...

ANYHOO.........as much as I LOVE RIBBON, I love to package things up kind of pretty (smile)...so I decided first since they allowed me to be their shopper of 10 yards - which I through in a few more ribbons I wanted to package them using the RIBBON SPOOL SET from The Cutting Cafe...

I started with this: - I took the front of the SPOOL BOX and enlarged it to 10 inches.
The yummy paper is from the PAPER STUDIO - I got the pad from Hobby Lobby...LOVE IT
I cut them out first in chipboard then I covered the fronts and backs with the pattern paper.

Next I just started wrapping the assorted ribbons on the spool:
 I also added the I LOVE TO CREATE circle tag from the Cutting Cafe.

 Then I just topped it off with a mini wooden spool that I think I got from Michael's. I have been buying lots of pretty fabric lately - I just cut the fabric in strips and wrapped around the spools.  A little something some of you may not know - I use to back in the day have a business in which I made fabric stickers and fabric ribbon hence why my email address is fabriccutups@prodigy.net....at the very bottom of this post is a card I did a long time ago using some of my FABRIC CUTUPS...hum maybe I will bring that business back...(smile)
 
 I still have a few more to wrap, but for now the ones that are done are sitting in this cute little tin basket I bought from Marshall's.
SOOOOOOOOOOOO I am in the RAK MOOD......if you would like the LARGE RIBBON SPOOL,
