for the love of a hop...

Welcome to this month's hop...This month I used the white and green gross grain ribbon from the club assortment and natural jute string to grunge it up a bit. To create the ribbon piece for the base I trimmed the ribbon on each side and ends to allow fraying. I then did a basket weaving technique, stitched around the edges and added the fabric to the bottom. I then used glitter mist to apply the color. Here is the order of the hop...make sure to head on over to Misty's blog to continue.
