I dig the challenge of taking ordinary + under appreciated junk and turning it into something unexpected and beautiful. I am choosing an item that is cheap, readily available, old school, often ignored and snubbed by most of us. The staple of my party packaging youth, the ancient way to make things cute that has been kicked to the party supply curb by baker's twine, washi tape, tulle, jute, and every ribbon in the aisle of every craft store. A lonely little item that does not get asked to the dance much. And she certainly does not get much dessert table action.
I'm talking curling ribbon. I shudder. I wince. I need a Diet Dr. Pepper. And a jelly donut. It took me years to perfect the "curl with scissors" technique, only to be tossed aside like last month's InStyle mag.
Can you make curling ribbon cute, cool and clever? Totes. Glam? Without a doubt.
Take the dirty discards and turn it into dazzle.
Your Iron Craft challenge is to use curling ribbon-any kind or color-in a beautiful, exciting, glam, dazzling way for any event, craft, party, play date, business venture, classroom, DIY, food stuff or anything else you do this year. Then send me a picture.
I'm bringing curly back. In?
