Junes Class kit

Had the girls over today for this months kit, we used the beautiful Basic Grey Sweet Thread papers and stickers.

Love these little ribbon flowers I made to embellish the flower centres....I know its not a new technique to many of you but its the first chance I have had to play with seam binding on a scrapbook page and as its so soft its a doddle to do.  I did 2 sizes using a 3/4" and 1" circle punch and some extra tacky double sided the red one.  It needs to be a dry glue or else the ribbon will get mucky.  Punch out your circle and adhere dst all over it, so its completely covered.  Starting with your ribbon tightly pinched together start in the middle and work your away around in a circle and keep folding the ribbon as you go.  Each time you fold press the ribbon down onto the dst so it stays stuck down, keep on going until you have worked your way around the whole circle and then cut off leaving enough to stick down onto the back of the circle and add some more dst to hold it place...and you ave it ready in place to attach to your layout.  If there is any card can carefully cut the excess careful not to catch the ribbon!  You can do any size you want and they are quite flat so not going to take up to much room in your albums. 

Made another one up and with a little help took some step by step pics....not great as the light was fading fast, but you get the!!

Enjoy your weekend!
