A Hop With May Arts And Epiphany Crafts!

Hello and welcome to my stop on the hop with May Arts and Epiphany Crafts!  If you've stumbled along my post first, hop on back over to May Arts---and don't forget to leave comments for a chance to win some crafty goodness...

Now, on with the makes!  Here's what I've come up with...

One of my favorite ways to use ribbon, is to create a fabric cover for a mini album.  

   This particular book cover was created by layering several lengths of the 2" Burlap/Cotton Blend ribbon in white in a crosshatch pattern, and adding machine stitching in a contrasting black thread.

The Chevron Bubble Caps by Epiphany Crafts make the perfect colorful embellishment!  I love the ombre look I was able to achieve.

And that's the cover!  Super clean and graphic.  I love this geometric look!!
