I participated in a ribbon swap on Trimcraft last week. The idea was to send about 7 ribbons of varying length to 3 people and you got 3 back. I made Tilda pocket cards. I coloured the Tildas with water colour pencils. Various backing papers. Inside, I added peel offs to the pockets. I used a ribbon card for a template to keep the ribbon tidy, and added velcro to close the cards.Finally, I made enveloboxes to send them in.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
