Hello ribbon friends. One of the things on my “to make” list is a jewelry organizer. I’ve seen various kinds in Pinterest and decided to go with a frame one. I found a frame that had a nice edge/frame to it at the thrift store and knew that it would be a perfect base for my project. With the help of some grosgrain ribbon fromRibbon’s Unlimited Inc., my project came together in a snap and with lots of personality. Read on to see how I created my frame.
1. First step was to paint the frame. At first I decided to hand paint it with a brush and acrylic paint. But because my frame has many intricate parts, it was hard to give it a good overall coverage. So I bought a small can of spray paint and then painted it brown instead of my original idea of apple green.
5. I repeated the same process with the ribbons going on the opposite direction and cut the trims to my desired length.
6. Next I laid the ribbons, weaving them through each other to create the cross pattern and then hot glued the ends to the back of the cardboard.
7. I then adhered the cardboard to the existing frame backing with some more hot glue and it was ready to be used.
Thank you for joining me today and happy creating.
