Good morning! I had to rearrange a few posts this week to fit this challenge in before midnight tonight! I’m using the colour inspiration from The Play Date Cafe challenge …black, white and a splash of blue. This lovely Ocean Princess seam binding ribbon is from Memrie Mare over at Etsy. I love her ribbon, how she packages each bundle AND the sweet little candy or chocolate she adds to each order :) The ribbon comes scrunched, but sometimes I like it flat. The only problem? Our laundry room is on the top floor of the new house (by the bedrooms) and my studio is in the basement. AND I only need a few minutes of heat. So meet my new ribbon iron!
I can’t remember where I saw this, may have been on Kristina Werner’s blog, but this week I looked for a mini flat iron. Found a Conair one at the grocery store for $20.00 and grabbed it. Plus it’s red (flashy) and comes with a little heat resistant travel bag. It worked like a charm ironing this ribbon. Now, I know I have to be careful so nothing burns, but all I did was slide it through very quickly. So fun and practical :) Hope your week is going well. Only 3.5 more days! EEK!
