Pretty Pen holders


Anything goes with ribbon is our new challenge at Crafty Ribbons. I bought these MDF pen pots from the MDF Man at Ally Pally and really like the way they turned out. I decorated 4 and have sold 2 of them at fairs. The papers are LOTV and the ribbons from Crafty Ribbons of course. I then added various flowers.

One of the ladies who bought one bought it for make up brushes and the other is a crafter who is going to use it to keep her pencils in whilst working on a card.

Not Just Cards anything goes
Whimsy ribbon, lace or twine

We are off out today to visit my good friend Lynsey. There is a lovely craft shop in King's Lynn, Sprinkle Twinkle so a visit there and then lunch in a little tearooms. Catch you later.
