May Arts:: Spring/Summer New Release Hop


May Arts has a whole slew of fabulous new ribbons available for Spring/Summer 2015, and they have a two day inspiration hop to showcase them! I'm the last stop for the day. I received the amazing 468 series ribbon, 2.5" Cotton Blend/Vintage Print in Nautical and Garden, to showcase and I took advantage of the wide width for my projects.


My first project feature the ribbon with the trendy, vintage nautical print. This print is perfect for simple, masculine decor! I took a cleaned, tin can and covered the top portion with the nautical print and added a strip of denim ribbon on the bottom. I combined the two together with a knotted row of thick, burlap twine.

The following two projects feature how easy this wide, patterned ribbon is to use on greeting cards. I took advantage of the amazing prints and substituted ribbon for patterned paper by simply adhering the ribbon to a card base with double sided adhesive, stamping a sentiment and finishing the card with burlap string bow and knot.



As usual, there are prizes! Three winners will receive 1 roll of the new release! I hope you enjoy the hop today and tomorrow. Here's a line-up for both days, but be sure to check out full details over on the May Arts Blog!

  4. Love the way you have utilized the rustic twines. The nautical can is a cute idea. I like the twine to match the sails and trims on the card, especially since it matches the rope tying diagram. BUT I have to say my fav is the sweet little pink card tied with the natural jute. I always think I should use something dainty or lacy but this is so charming!
    Thanks for sharing your lovely work! :)
