ribbon keeper

I got this CUTE Maya Road Coffee Break tin from Joy & Daisy at Eclectic Paperie. It's really a cute size and fun to work with. You can remove the handle to put your paper on!! Way cool!!!


I made this ribbon keeper with a tag ring for a friend. I made the tags from lightweight chipboard and the cutest images from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Cuts - Friendship & Flowers and Heartwarming Vintage Booklets - Wacky & Wonderful. I covered the tin with Crafty Secrets Radiant patterned paper that I adhered with Mod Podge and painted a coat on the outside. I got the Crafty Secrets paper and images from Anna Wight's Sassy & Sweet Crafts.


After I put the paper on the tin, I marked with a pencil and my paper piecing template where I wanted the holes to be in the front. I took my Crop-a-Dile and punched the holes in the tin. I die cut some flowers with my Cuttlebug, punched holes in those and glued them over the holes in the tin, then I set the pink flower eyelets (SU! retired) in the holes with my Crop-a-Dile. I put loose ribbon inside and ran it through the holes. I put the pink rick rack on the lid rim with E6000. The black buttons were shank buttons, I snipped off the shanks with my small pliers and glued those on with E6000.


For the tags, I cut the chipboard and patterned paper the same size, adhered the paper to the chipboard, front and back and punched the corners with my ticket corner punch from SU! I cut out the images with my tiny scalloped scissors and adhered those on the tags. I set the oval eyelets (SU! retired) in the tags with my Crop-a-Dile. I glued on the ribbon and buttons with E6000. I told y'all I use that stuff ALL the time, LOL! I put the tags on a binder ring along with a key and clipped it on the tin handle.


The ribbon, rick rack and 7gypsies key came from Cindy at StarLit Studio


The lace and vintage buttons came from my mom Ü

OMG, but this is just fabulous! I actually have one of these little tins and just haven't decided what to use it for. Now I have another possible use (I was thinking CB dye storage). I love how you used your cropodile to punch the holes/set eyelets to thread the ribbon through. I also LOVE the added touch of the dye cut flowers beneath the eyelets. Your friend is going to flip when she gets this! I know I would! :-)
