~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I wanted to do something different than what I've done in the past. So, with that in mind, I crawled out of my "place a piece of ribbon across a panel and add a bow" box and came up with this....
The ribbon on the red panel was ran through the corners and met in the middle. I tied it off in a little knot leaving the ends long, then tucked another length of ribbon under it and tied a bow. The two corner pieces on the white panel are separate and if you look closely, you can see the tiny bows I made and attached to the fan handles. The fans are actually stamped (using the masking technique) and colored in using a vibrant red Tombow marker. I added a little Onyx glitter to give them some bling.
Well I hope you enjoyed my creation. It's time for you to move along and visit with the UBERLY talented and newest DeNami DT member, EMILY Keaton. I can not wait to see what amazing project she has in store for us!! Remember, if you get lost, just head back to the DeNami blog to get back on track and don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win a great prize!!
