Sunday, February 28


has hit me... that would be why I've been MIA this past week. Oh and I have been CRAZY busy! I know when am I NOT busy, but I had things to do 4 nights in a row last week. That's a record for me!

Last Sunday, I was asked to make some 1st, 2nd & 3rd place ribbons for the Science Fair at L's school. Me with my 'Special' math thought I only had to make 3 (one of each) so I was going to go all out & do a ribbon w/gathered ribbon around the rim and make it really snazzy. Luckily I reread the email and realized that I needed to make 3 for EACH grade, making the total 18!

I decided to make them simpler and used the Circles #2 Sizzix Die with my Big Shot. Then I cut white circles out to fit onto the large scallop circle with my Stampin' Up! Circle Scissors Plus. LOVE that thing. I don't use it enough. I don't have a big alphabet yet for my Big Shot, so I traced the numbers & letters onto SU's Gold and Silver Card Stock and cut them out by hand. Glued them on, added ribbon tails, a back circle (to make it look cleaner) and a piece of velcro so it could be easily added to or removed from a project.

Voila! Here are two pictures of them. I personally LOVED how they turned out. Hopefully it will give you an idea if you should ever need to make some.
