Watch the birdie

Ruffled ribbon is all the rage at the moment and this new Seam Binding ribbon from the Mini catalogue is perfect for the job. It comes in Baja Breeze (shown here), Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz and Rose Red. What you do is fray the end a little and take one of the strands from the centre. Pull and the ribbon will begin to ruffle. The more you pull, the tighter the ruffles will be – just play around... whatever you do with it will look fabulous.

I’ve stamped on the Designer Series Paper here to add a little interest – I used Cherry Cobbler ink and the foliage and eggs from the Nature Walk stamp set. Lots of torn edges as these products just cry out for a “shabby” look, in my opinion!
