May Arts Ribbonista Christmas Hop

Hello and thanks for hopping to my blog. Today is the final day of this holiday-project filled hop.  I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.  My project is a Mini Christmas tree.  I love trees of all sizes and love that small trees are easily found at so many stores these days.  I wanted a bit of decoration in my studio and this size Christmas tree is perfect!  So here is my...

Recipe for a Simple Sweet Little  Button and Bows Christmas Tree.

Ingredients: mini Christmas tree, colorful buttons, thin May Arts Ribbons!

Step 1. Fluff your tree while listening to Christmas carols!
Step 2. Thread button with ribbon and tie on to tree.  Add 2 ribbons together if you wish.
Step 3. Repeat step 2 over and over again, filling your tree with buttons and bows!
Step 4. Create a tree topper by tying buttons in a cluster at the top of the tree.
Step 5. Sit back, smile and enjoy your sweet little tree!


May Arts has a wonderful resource where you can browse by width.  all the ribbons used were 1/4 or 1/8 inch wide.  http://www.mayarts.com/store/category/ribbon-widths/

May Arts is so generous with prizes...We have a giveaway for this hop.  Leave a comment along the way of the hop and you could win some scrumptious ribbons!

Thanks for stopping by! I wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas and a joyous New Year.
