3GJ + CI

I am so excited to share my project with you today!

I was recently asked by Julie, owner of 3 Girl Jam, to be a guest designer!

I was introduced to 3 Girl Jam's wonderful Crinkle Ribbon this  past fall, and instantly fell in love!!

The current challenge on the 3 Girl Jam Challenge Blog is Anything Goes!  Be sure to enter!!

I've been using the Crinkle Ribbon on many of my card, but for today's post I wanted to do something a little different!

One of my late nights in my craft room I got the perfect idea!

Having a little girl in the house, she just loves me creating flowers for her hair and such.  Well I thought it would be fun to create a hair tie for in her hair using 3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon and Creative Inspirations Paint!

Here's the hair tie I created for her:
How fun!!  I just LOVE how it turned out!!

I used Crinkle Ribbons in Cherry Lipstick and Baby Girl!  I also added some sheer ribbon of my own.  Along with finalizing it with some Clear Jeweled Inspirations from Creative Inspirations Paint!

My supplies:



I used Tutu Pink on the Baby Girl Crinkle Ribbon and Fairy Dust on the Cherry Lipstick Crinkle Ribbon.

So I started by adding the paint into a zip-lock bag and then the ribbon, trying to cover all of the ribbon.

I then removed the ribbon and left it dry in a little ball.  The paint makes the ribbon harder and also helps so that the ends of the ribbon don't fray! (Make sure to let to ribbon dry completely or it may rip when tying it to the hair band - happened to me as I was anxious to finish the hair tie!)

In progress look:


I finished it off by randomly add some Clear Jeweled Inspirations.

In my daughter's hair, it shimmers so much!
When I gave it to my daughter the look on her face was PRICELESS!  She was so excited and in her words she just "LOVED the diamonds I added to it!!"


My adorable model:

Be sure to check out the 3 Girl Jam store for all the wonderful Crinkle Ribbon, there are so many great colors to choose from!  There is also a lovely Bow Maker that I just love!

Have a great day!
