Hoot Hoot Sexy Can

Momma (or Dee to all our friends)
LOVES to go BIG and BOLD so her
first can fits her personality well
and matches her scrap area perfectly!

10 Ways to use with Twine * Ribbon on your projects:

1. Add a bow: An elaborate bow or a ‘cheat’ bow - a knot in a piece of twine/ribbon which is then stuck on with a glue dot. Trim the edges for a bit of elegance.
2. Anchor a journaling block: The ribbon can go underneath the journaling block or stop at the sides making it look as though the ribbon is holding it in place. Add a couple of brads to finish it.
3. Attach to a ribbon slide: Hold a ribbon slide in place in a similar way to the journaling block
4. Add a border for a page: - horizontally, vertically or both.
5. Make stems for flowers
6. Make a tab holder: Accent a photo with an oddment of ribbon and a brad. Not all ribbon is used by the yard or that should read the ‘foot’ as on a 12 x 12 layout! ‘Hold’ a journaling block in place with a tab, again made from an oddment of ribbon. Or make a handle to pull out a hidden journaling tag.
7. Add ‘leaves’ to a flower or a tail to an accent like this Brad Buddy
8. Decorate a photo mat: This photo has been placed on a large mount and the extra space is wrapped with ribbon to which star brads have been added.
9. Give your photograph a ribbon treatment: Note the pretty lace ‘hanging’ at the right of the photo hiding/disguising the empty space and at the same time framing the photograph
10. Add a ‘word’ ribbon: even on a male layout! There are many examples available in various scrapbooking ranges, or you can stamp your own.
