Hope the design team has inspired you to create project for LESSology Challenge #45: Ribbon Fantasy. But how about one more dose of inspiration to end the week? Let's admire the project from design team member Lizzy Hill.

 Guess which box I tackled? Originally it held Tim Tams in it, I think!!!
 And after! A bit better, eh? NOTE: Ribbon has been used!!!
And 'blinged up' with silver glitter NAIL POLISH. Of Course!!!
 I even added in seam binding and tulle ribbon BESIDES the ribbon 'flowers' I created...
It's easy to make ribbon flowers using Glubers as a base, I find. I hadn't played with them for ages, so it was actually fun. But don't tell on me!!!
 And to 'switch it up', I used all 3 of these in the one flower....to give it added texture......
 ...& of course, gessoed over the top to add  a softer colour, a layer of protection & stiffness....
The tin was covered in old paper from Zeus & Zoe, with my BOSTIK PVA glue. Worked a treat!

The Glam Shot!!!!! Ric-Rac got a look in, too!! 
So, what can YOU do with ribbon? We'd love to see your take here at LESSology this month - & remember, you just need to use one upcycled or recycled element.
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
