Crafty Ribbons - Challenge #2

Well what a fabulous response to our first challenge over at Crafty Ribbons!  Thank you all for sooo many beautiful entries.  Remember to stop by the challenge blog and have a look to see if you were our lucky winner or one of our top 3.  Remember, although our winner is picked by random org, the top 3 are chosen by the host of the challenge - so a different DT member picks the top 3 each time!!
So what is the theme for our challenge this time????
Well, I know this is always a favourite with just about everyone, this time the theme is......
So that means you can go off creating to your hearts content safe in the knowledge that it will fit our challenge.
Here is what I decided on for this challenge:
The box is just a simple wooden box which I have sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist.  Then I added one of the fabulous new ribbons available at Crafty Ribbons, this is one of the New England ribbons, around the bottom of the box.
Next I took one small piece of a different New England Ribbon and just wrapped it around a small piece of card and adhered it to the lid of the box.
The thin green ribbon is available from Crafty Ribbons here.
The rosette type flower is made with two contrasting polka dot ribbons, again part of the New Christmas ribbons, also available from Crafty Ribbons here.  I followed the tutorial on the Hello Wednesday section on the Crafty Ribbons website and you can see that here.  The original tutorial was for a brooch but I adapted it and made it into a flower which I added to the lid with silicone glue.

I am really happy with how this has turned out and cannot recommend the tutorials on the Crafty Ribbons website highly enough.  There are lots of pics and fabulous instructions.
The prize for this challenge is this fabulous array of ribbons, aren't they just gorgeous??
Don't forget, every Friday on the Crafty Ribbons website there is a Friday Freebie.  Now this can range from ribbons, to buttons to a £20 voucher to spend in the store.  All you have to do is leave a comment on the Friday Freebie post and who knows your name could get picked out of the ribbon bag!!
Please remember to stop by the rest of the Design Team blogs and have a look at their fabulous creations - believe me there are some stunning projects for you to look through and I know you won't be disappointed. (Links are in the sidebar)
So off you go and start creating - I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Have fun!
