Caardvarks- Chipboard

I'm not sure if this is allowed for the Caardvarks challenge but heck, I like living on the edge! The challenge was to use chipboard (on a card me thinks), I've used mount board and made it look like chipboard so i'm half way there!

These are some more ribbon dispensers (I have a lot of ribbon!). My mum gave me these mini marmalade jars ages ago and i've been making plans ever since. They make absolutely perfect ribbon dispensers and they look so cute on my craft desk. I got Holly to time me making one and it took 10 minutes from beginning to end!

I cut the chipboard flower with my Sizzix Daisy paper sculpting die, poked a hole in the jar lid (even my cropodile has it's limitations) then punched a hole in the centre of the flower and attached it to the lid with an eyelet. The sides of the jars are just decorated with strips of paper and ribbon/glitter.

I then filled my jars with ribbon and poked the end of the ribbon up through the lid.



Here they are again, sitting on my craft bench next to the fab glitter rack that my wonderful dad made for me.
