Here is a sneak peek at what I made...
|This is what was in my ribbon bin...I had to separate the boy-ish colours from the girly ones as this project is for my twin boys.|
Okay, so my current house has high ceilings that I absolutely adore, but as much as I love it, sometimes it looks like wasted space with so much potential to be great! So I thought, why not make something visually appealing with that space?? Make it momentous? That's when I remembered a mobile project I made for one of my final projects for Spatial Design when I studied Art and Design YEARS ago. I know this is kind of sidetracking from this post, but here's a little bit about that project. Over the years I had accumulated movie tickets (which I had written at the back who I watched it with and what I thought of it). I had HEEEAAAPS stored in a special memory box (that sadly I can't seem to locate anymore). I decided to photocopy each and every one of them, cut them out, laminate, cut again, pierce holes through them and thread through clear nylon strings to make a Memory mobile. It was such a cool project, but I can't seem to find any pictures of it to share with you all :-( I didn't have a digital camera back then, so I don't think I even documented it... Oh well, maybe it's one of those things that's best treasured in the moment... With that said, let's get back to the Pinterest Challenge!!
|After sifting through so many ribbons, then selecting the ones that looked suitable for the job, here are the successful applicants!|
|And now cut to desired lengths...|
|Pegged on an embroidery hoop to try out different ribbon combination options|
|After VERY PATIENTLY hot gluing each ribbon onto my hoop, here it is...|
|Hung with twine on my ironing board, which I placed on top of my coffee table just to take this shot, hehe|
|I love how it glows and really shows off the beautiful blues and greens...|
|I'll iron these ribbons before I put them in the twins' bedroom...if I can be bothered, hehe|
|LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!|
