petite pairs

paper: early espresso, lucky limeade, everyday enchantment dsp, naturals ivory
ink: calypso coral, soft suede, pool party
stamps: petite pairs, elementary elegance SAB set
tools: matte pack, paper piercer, boho blossoms punch, itty bitty punch pack
accessories: everyday enchantment brad/ribbon bundle, rhinestones, mini glue dots, stampin dimensionals, very vanilla gathered ribbon(retired)
 more ways to use up some of those pretty dsp scraps! these are all from the awesome free pack from SAB!  this is basically a case right otta the sab caty! recognize it? i love playing w/ the ribbon that way. i took about a 12" strip and then wrapped it around my two fingers. pinch in the center and then slip the ribbon right in between the fingers of the brad. make sense? Then after you pierce your hole in the card or sentiment piece w/ the matte pack and paper piercer, you can put the brad(w/ ribbon already in it) through and spread the fingers! no tying a bow, i know you all LOVE doing bows and knots...well this is an easy way to get around it, in my opinion the messier the better! ;) notice all 3 are different....
