How many of us have looked at those wonderful Bravissimo award ribbons from Making Memories at Michaels lately and thought I could do that with my Cricut? Well the talented Nadia has done just that and posted the directions on her blog. Check it out at Nadia's With Glittering Eyes blog. I decided to try making some patriotic ones. I made two following Nadia's directions and hung a ribbon on them so they could be hung on a wall or doorknob. For me I was thinking my light sconces on each side of hearth. I see a lot of great uses for these. Even makes me wish I was still teaching to make them for various student activities and awards. (But just a little bit.) For now I am going to make some smaller ones for 4th of July and a Big Sister one for my granddaughter when her sister arrives. As Nadia shows they look great on gift bags.
