From the above I chose the silver, red, and green glitter ribbon and the gold mesh. My idea was to alter a Prima Archiver's music box that I got several years ago. It looks like a silver box that when the lid is removed there is room to include something. I chose to make a small accordian album for Christmas memories for journaling and photos. Using the gold mesh I embellished the front with a gold mesh flower with the silver glitter ribbon in the middle and to hold the accordian album closed.
The lid was outlined on the sides with the silver glitter ribbon and the top with a silver ribbon rose and curly sprouts. The green glitter ribbon outlines the top of the lid, holds the two jingle bells, and embellishes the red Christmas bulb. Red glitter ribbon also was used to enhance the bulb in the center of the large gold mesh flower.
I hope you enjoy my creation!
This selection of ribbon was so easy to work it. By accident I stumbled on how easy the silver ribbon when wrapped around a pencil curled. The gold mesh ribbon was very versatile in its ability to poof or lay flat.
