Guest Designer/Prize Giveaway

Good Morning Ladies!


I am so excited to be the guest designer on 3 Girl Jam Today! http://www.3girljam.blogspot.com/ I have been a follower of 3 Girl Jam since they first opened their doors.  Today I made a Thanksgiving Explosion Box. 
Here is a side view using one of 3 Girl Jam's Estate Vintage Buttons and Harvest Bundle Ribbon.
Here is the box exploded.


And the top of the box.






To make the bow, I wound the ribbon loosely around my fingers 4-5 times and then tied it with twine.  I attached the tag to the ends of the twine.  Then you just have to play with the bow, fluff it until it looks the way you want it to look.


Would you like to win a prize?
1. Go to 3 Girl Jam leave me a comment therehttp://www.3girljam.blogspot.com/
2. Come back here and leave me a comment here telling me the two color bundle of hand dyed ribbon you would like to have the most. One winner will receive a Bundle & Vintage Estate Buttons...yummy!
3. You must be a follower of my blog!
Good Luck
Oh, I know that this is getting picture heavy, but I had to show you one more picture that I took.  Look at these delicious Vintage Estate Buttons - I you love buttons the way that I do, you will love these!

  1. Girl! You know I am a follower ;0) And I left you a comment on 3GJ. I love them too! When they had their introductory hop I had to order some from the big sampler package. I wanted it all! LOL. But I do really like their ribbon.

    Anyways...your box is AWESOME! I love the papers. And thanks a million for showing how you made that bow on top...cause I love it. Hugs, girl..you've done great.

    Be Blessed, Beckie

  46. Hi, Chriss, love that exploding box. I have seen them before, but none so elegant as this one! I so admire your creativity! And, I so admire that Winter Bundle! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Gorgeous box Chriss! I love exploding boxes - I have not made one for years but I am definitely ready to make another after seeing this! Thanks for showing how to make that bow - that is definitely the easiest fluffy bow I have seen yet and I need easy :) I am a new follower of your blog and I am already a follower of 3 Girl Jam. I won some of their crinkly ribbon during the opening and I love it although I have not had much time to use it lately. I have been longing for some of those estate buttons - love that name (that is exactly one reason I go to estate sales is for the vintage sewing supplies) - and I would love to win some. Thanks for the chance.

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
