Shopping Our Stash #297 ~~ Tie One On

No we are not heading out to the bar.....Shopping Our Stash want you to use ribbon, twine, ric-rac, cord, yarn etc. on your project. I loved the side by side challenge so well I just had to make another step card, my favourite, a tall skinny step card.

After I coloured these gorgeous poppies I realized I didn't have any appropriate patterned paper so I had to put my thinking cap on to decide what to use.....light bulb moment ..... Eyelet Outlet Washi tape!!! it worked perfect. I added my real red ribbon (su) by punching a double slot with a punch I haven't used in years but I really had to have it for ribbon, the way I did it was tie a knot in the ribbon, slide it down through the two slots then feed the left ribbon back through the right slot and visa versa and trim the ends. I also added the colouring book butterfly brads (they are on sale at the Eyelet Outlet)

Super cute butterfly.

Yes I did notice that I have used two different butterflies but it wasn't until I posted the picture and was typing my blog so you know (because I am a perfectionist) I will be deciding which one I'm using. Did you scroll back up and look?

Thanks for visiting today and get ready for an easy peasy challenge to use ribbon, twine, etc. on your project. Head over to the Shopping Our Stash blog and see what the rest of the team have done.

I love that you used washi tape...I thought it was paper actually.
