And now for my project featuring Lovebug Creations Fun Footz Ribbon.

Scarlet Calliope pinwheel 6

I created some whimsical pinwheels to play with this summer.  How adorable is this ribbon from Lovebug Creations?

I love pink and yellow together and love how well this ribbon collection coordinates perfectly with the paper from Heidi Swapp!

The paper is Sugar Chic from Heidi Swapp, layered with some paper doilies and cut with my Martha Stewart Scallop Rotary Cutter Blade.

I painted three skewers white and then dusted them with some sparkly glitter and added some glitter to accent the pinwheels as well.

I’m bow-tying challenged so I watched a tutorial online about how to tie a bow using a special bow maker.

I don’t have a bow maker yet, so I used a fork (I’m versatile like Ariel, the Little Mermaid!) and I’m so happy that I can finally make bows that are even on both sides!
