Organize your Stuff: Week 12 (round 4): Ribbons & Fibers Part 1

This week is Ribbons! My ribbons were tamed during round 2 (here). The POW is happy with this organization (Artbins from Michaels).  OCD Me thinks that it makes sense, Creative Me sees through the Jedi Mind tricks, and has no problem finding what she needs, and PA Me finds it hard not to put stuff away as the system is so easy!  It is ROY G BIV with neutrals in one, red through green in the second (Inner Hoarder sees that one splitting in the future) and blues and purples and felt boarders (mostly from Queen & Co) in the third. 
Here is this week’s Tuesday Trio Design Team Sketch (#71). The design theme for this one was Birthday. Inner Hoarder had bought these cute little bear brads from the Eyelet Outlet at CKC Portland back in March and has been dying to use them. Creative Me fell in love! This is the result of that love…

Creative Me also made flowers using 5/8 and 7/8 inch circle punches. It is a great way to custom make a flower for a card or layout and use up some of those scraps.

Here is how...
Punch some scraps...
 mash them up, then ink...(ink sticks to the ridges)
add mist (oohhh Creative Me LOVES mists!)...
When it is dry, pile it together and add an eyelet (we all have a bunch of those hanging around!) or brad to make the center!

Hope that you make many of your own and have happy crafting this week!
