Who Loves Ribbons?

I do, do you too?

A couple of days ago I received these spotty ribbons in the post from Crafty Ribbons for taking part in their Ribbon Challenge No. 17 'Organza Swiss Dots'.  As I was one of the first 15 people to email them I was sent a bundle of their exclusive ribbons and in return they asked that I create and send them two items where their ribbon had been used. 

I hadn't made a paper doll for a while and thought this was a good excuse to do another and dress her completely in the ribbons!  Her name is Miss Dotty Swiss and she is showing you all the ribbons above!

Of course she had to have a couple in her hair!

The ribbon is narrow - only 10mm wide so for the bodice I glued strips onto a bodice shape piece of card (with sticky dots - how appropriate!).  For the skirt I cut small strips and glued them under the bodice.  Musn't forget her spotty tights either!  Her legs were just about slim enough for one strip of the ribbon. I glued the ribbon onto the legs with Anita's 3-D glue.

For the other piece I created a little wall hanging, details of which may be found in my previous post.  I used the ribbon on the flower pots and for the hanger too.

Here are both pieces together

If you haven't been over to Crafty Ribbons website before, it's well worth a visit as they have all sorts of ribbons at very reasonable prices - and there's a sale on at the moment.  Also, every week they have a 'Friday Freebie' just for leaving them a comment - well, it seems rude not to!

Thanks Crafty Ribbons and I hope you'll like my two items which will be on their way to you tomorrow.
