recycle containers with ribbon

One of our large stationery store is running a craft competition. The have not put out what they expect you just have to put your projects in with instructions. The problem is I have put in advanced projects and the winners have done something as simple as decorating a light shade with bought felt flowers. So this time I tried to combine simple with useful.
I have taken a milk bottle and cut it down to 2.5 inches. I then glued ribbon around it and also over the handle which is also cut from the milk bottle. They do make really cute little baskets. I also did a fruit salad can and wrapped the ribbon vertically to cover the can then placed a ribbon round the inside  to cover the edges. I have decorated them with embellishments I have in my stash. The ribbon is American craft ribbon and comes in a 24 pack value pack of 1 metre on each roll. If I win anything I will blog it.

  1. Wow these are so pretty and colorful. Fantastic

  2. Thanks Nicole I appreciate your comment, they only take about 30 minutes to make and use up all those little bits of ribbon. Great kids project to help them tidy up as well.
