Altered Ribbon Box


Top - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Back



Left Side - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Right Side

We were each given a ribbon box at our NEC meet by Hilda, whose son Graeme kindly made them for us all. The idea was that we all took them home and altered them in any way we chose. I decided to cover mine with metals and keep the puppy theme running through. The top says RIBBONS and also has a few dog bones dotted around. Each of the letters have been trimmed with lines or swirls. The back says ribbons / fibres and has been decorated with a criss cross pattern and some dots added. The sides have both been decorated with a dog, and a swirly hands free pattern has been created in the open space. At the moment I am unsure as to leave it 'naked' or colour it with alchol inks!!!!! Hence the reason no futher embellishments have been added - yet!!!!

Oh I'd leave it naked Sam. It's great. How neat your metalwork is, mine always looks lumpy and the edges are never straight.
