Serious Ribbon Crush ad Shabby Box Tutorial


Okay….I admit….I have a super serious ribbon crush on the new Cotton Blend Vintage Pink Floral RibbonWhen I saw that ribbon…I had to have it….stat!!!! It is so gorgeous and shabby. When it came in the mail…I loved it even more. It’s got a beautiful rose pattern and the burlap is sturdy…but soft enough to make a lovely poofy bow.  I didn’t add a bow to this project….but I will next time for sure : )

I upcycled a box into pretty and functional storage for my crafty space. It turned out so well….that I’ve been eyeballing things around the house to see what else I can cover….I may be addicted!

IMG_3624The only thing this box had going for it was that it’s a great size for containing pens or scissors but really heavy…so I can store my cropodile without tipping the box over.

IMG_3627Must have  Melissa Natural Crocheted Lace on the top.

IMG_3630I rescued a pretty handmade flower I created for a project that needed a little repurposing.


Isn’t that a fabulous little shabby chic box???? Thank you Bonnie for getting trim that I absolutely fell in love with!!!! I see a lot of burlap in my future!!!!

Okay……..that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )G
