Friday Freebie Ribbon spools

Not so long ago I purchased a whole collection of colours of crinkled seam binding. And yes, I know it's easy to do dye them oneself and I have indeed done it in the past, but so often it's a question of time right?Anyway, I wanted some pretty ribbon spools to wind the ribbon on, so while I was making them I thought, maybe some others would appreciate them as well. So here goes.








And here you can see some of my ribbons wound onto the spools. I printed them on slightly textured card stock, glued that to thin chipboard (old cereal packet), cut them out and voila.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
