Christmas anything goes at The Ribbon Girl blog ......

It's the first day of December and it's only 10 days until we go to see Andre Rieu at Newcastle Arena!! We've had the tickets for ages and are really looking forward to the performance!


There is a mega Christmas/Winter 'anything goes' challenge over at The Ribbon Girl Blog which will run for the next couple of weeks. 

I made a Winter/Christmas Wedding Cake -  which is actually three gift boxes - I made them up from scratch using white card and some pretty paper.  To embellish my 'cake' I added  'Deborah' lace, 7mm cream satin, cream tiny pom pom, lots of 3mm double sided sticky tape, Wild Orchid 20mm cream roses, 30mm ivory roses, ivory cherry blossoms, white lily flowers, Ribbon Girl tiny red berries, and Kort & Godt ivory beaded berries all from The Ribbon Girl


The cake dividers are empty ribbon bobbins covered in paper and enhanced with mulberry and beaded flowers


here are the three gift boxes - I had a great time making this project - and hope it inspires some of you to give it a go - you could make a little replica 'cake' for friends and family who are getting married

 There will be a £10 voucher for The Ribbon Girl, a £10 voucher for Lili of the Valley, a kit of red ribbons and a snowflake stick pin - so what are you waiting for - you will find masses of inspiration from the entire Ribbon Girl Design Team

see you soon, Mary x
