It's curtains for snippets!


Don't panic it's not the end for snippets! I just made curtains from them lol!
I got this woodware set of stamps preloved and decided to try them out with snippets and some premade Craftwork card blanks. The view from the window is created using a preprinted pad from Crafty Individuals which I had left over from another project.
I made the pink one first, then thought maybe it was too fussy? So left the bricks off the next one and coloured the frame. Snippets are from PTI and the peach shades are the very last pieces of those papers now - sob.
Just before I skip to the snippets playground to show everyone my makes, here is my ribbon storage now complete with ribbon. You can see here when I covered this the other week along with some other projects. It took me about two hours to do this! Still some ribbon left over, but this is the majority of it, and who knew I had so much brown ribbon! You really do realise how amazing this storage idea is when you come to use it. Before I had tidied my boxes but as you reach in for a ribbon it all just ends up in a mess again. This way I can see what I have and hopefully use.....

I'm really impressed, all my ribbon is stuffed in a box all tangled up. I'm sure it was worth all the effort of sorting. I like your snippety curtain cards too and the cats are so cute.

Love those snippet cards. So much fun. Thanks so much for sharing a photo of your full ribbon holder. It looks fantastic and like you said so wonderful to just see all the colours there.

LOVE your cats with their patterned papers matching the curtains. Great views from the windows too.

Fabby cards!! Loving the funky curtains!! ...... Also loving your ribbon storage, I have recently been organising my craft space, I did come down from the loft lamenting that I had just spent 4 hours of my life organising ribbon!!! .... Your storage for yours looks so pretty xx
