Sparkly grosgrain ribbon!

Hi, I just wanted to share with you how I gave plain old Meiflower grosgrain ribbon a bit of a Christmassy sparkle.

Here's the ribbon on a card.
Pic not brilliant as was taken late at night, so you may have to click on it and make it larger, to actually be able to see the sparkle.

Cut grosgrain ribbon to length and tie your bow, use Crafters Companion Stick n spray or 3M spray mount in a well ventilated area (preferably outdoors), place ribbon and bow onto scrap paper and lightly spray over with adhesive - then either sprinkle with glitter or if you keep your glitter in a plastic lidded box as I do, drop the items into the glitter replace the lid and give the box a good shake. Lift items out, brush gently with an old blusher brush and Voila! sparkly ribbon and bow. I used the same technique on the die cut snowflake garland too.

Thanks for stopping by,
Colette xx
