Each day we will be highlighting a Shop/Site/Product on our Inspiration blog and each day there will be some fabulous inspiration from the Crafty Ribbons Design Team.
Not only that, if you remember to add your name to the Linky each day you could stand a chance of winning some awesome prizes!
So here we go then folks.
Day 1
Today we are sponsored by the fabulous:

“Welcome to all ribbon lovers...."

Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none.
Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel? Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft. Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all! Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects, Go on, have a try... It's worth it !

Here is the fabulous prize on offer for today:

So here is my project for today:
This is my bottle top Christmas Tree.
Each of the discs is made up of a plastic bottle top off the milk cartons, wadding and a circle of material.
These are stuck down onto card, and then decorated as you wish.
I have simply used some wonderful Crafty Ribbons Christmas Ribbon.
The hanger and the bow are made from the gorgeous velvet sentiment ribbon and then the two pieces across the tree are grosgrain sentiment ribbons.
The snowflakes are wooden precut shapes.
This complete project comes from my local craft store, The Craft Cave on the Weston Road in Stafford.
I am not kidding it is a really small shop but it is like a tardis - you would not believe how much stuff they have in there!! LOL
So what are you waiting for, get on over to the Inspiration Blog and get signed up.
I'd like to enter my little Christmas Tree into the following challenges:
