Stampin' B's Ribbon Challenge

It's Thursday! Not only is today my kids' last day of school for 2010, it is also time for another Stampin' B's DT challenge. This time around Lois is our hostess, and she is challenging us to use ribbon in any way except tied in a bow or a knot. Hmmmmm . . .

Here's what I came up with. I gave my red satin ribbon a good twist before adhering it down. No bows or knots here!! I altered this mini lunchbox tin as a Christmas gift for my son's second grade teacher. Here's a peek at the other side.
I also made a set of 20 Christmas gift tags to go inside the tin, where they are organized by paper dividers I created. This should help my son's teacher keep all organized for gift prep!

I hope you've been inspired to play along with the Stampin' B's!! If you do make a card, post it on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)

Thanks for checking out my little slice of bliss for today!

What a super altered tin. I know your son loves to present his teacher with an item such as this. And, I see you even lined the tin. The tags are so pretty. That had to be a very happy teacher when she received this project.

Tee hee! What a cute tin, and I love how you've neatly filled it with an assortment of equally-cute tags. A super thoughtful gift, and one that is not likely to be forgotten or re-gifted or shoved away somewhere!
