Back to School with the Ribbon Carousel Hop!

Hey all!

It's been a while and I'm SUPER excited to show you my latest project for Unity Stamp Company!

Today, we have something SPECIAL going on - it's a BLOG HOP with Ribbon Carousel!

* Make sure that you comment for your chance to win! (DETAILS BELOW!) *

I got to play with their yummy ribbons - and decided to make an altered organization clipboard that would be perfect as a Back-to-School gift!

Photobucket

So cute, right? This is my third altered clipboard and I've been loving making them!

Do you see all those pretty ribbons in my project? (I've used 4 various ribbons here! Can you spot them all?) They are all from Ribbon Carousel! ...and all those yummy stamps? Of course, they are ALL Unity!

I took one of those ordinary push pins, and cut off the needle end to make a simple embellishment!

This is a post-it-note! Perfect place to always have handy to jot down important stuff! I also added a ribbon tab at the side before I adhered the front paper down.  A clever place to hold your pen!

Here, I took one of those empty tin cans that you often get at an event and filled it up with paper clips - another thing which I usually have problem trying to locate on my desk.

Shown below, I try to show that you can add pencils, rulers, pretty much any object that acts as as an embellishment here, but it's also useful school items.

...and here's my FAVORITE part of my project - a little chalkboard! (paper from Canvas Corp)

You see the little apple here? It's made from red wire ribbon scrunched up into a little ball. Then I just added a little stem and a leaf on it :)

So, in case you're wondering about the fabulous Unity and Ribbon Carousel products used, here it is!
