Ribbon share wrapping-Guy Style!

Apr 2, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Tutorials

Who on earth would ever combine paper-crafting supplies, and power tools?

Well a man of course!

Everyone knows I am addicted to ribbon. Its the best embellishment-ever. I join every ribbon share Jodyhas. So I got this GORGEOUS share of May Arts ribbon. A $100 worth to be exact. Now my dilemma was I needed to wrap ALL those bundles of ribbon. So, I got these cool Fiber cards to organize it all!

So Saturday night. What does a married couple with three kids do-invite over our newly married friends for a little entertainment. The decision was to watch a movie (I know we aren’t very exciting, but we did have Pina Colada’s!).

So, I figured heck I’m not wasting a minute. I have ALL this ribbon I can wrap while I watch the movie. As I sit there wrapping, my supah sweet hubby say’s “Give me some and I’ll help you” (sweet huh?). Then our friends Sean & Jenny pitch in too! There we are all wrapping my ribbon! A real site let me tell you.

Well my thumbs, index, and middle fingers start to go numb from wrapping. The guys quit and agree this is a suck job, and there must be an easier way. I keep wrapping for another hour.

Then it hit them! POWER-DRILL!

Sean (Jay’s best friend as seen in photos) says “What if we had a dowel and a drill? I bet it would wind fast.” No dowel-no luck.

Jason runs and get the drill cause he remembers there are these “grasps” on it.

So they stick my fiber card in the grippers, and push the power button.

The ribbon starts to neatly spool onto the card, and its done in like 20 seconds!

Why they couldn’t have come up with that like and hour and a half ago?!! I was shocked! So here came the photos! I thought everyone needs to see this!

So here you have it. Power tools and paper-crafting really can coexist. Leave it to a man!

We are at her house celebrating Easter and her birthday. The kids had alot of fun on the egg hunt.

She loved her cake :D. Yeah! Mission accomplished. It tasted good too. We really need to have more family gatherings I think.

My Mom’s Birthday Cake!

Here it is! This is what took me most of yesterday! 

This morning we are going to my mother’s to celebrate Easter & her birthday. When I took cake decorating classes a few months ago her question was “Will you be able to make a Pansy cake?” I said I don’t know we will see. Now she has forgotten her request (or at least hasn’t mentioned it) so I hope to surprise her.

Why yellow frosting?

Well that is a question I am asking myself! LOL! I saw a cake like this in a book, and it had the yellow frosting. This is my CASE attempt. While Im not crazy about the yellow frosting on the cake I really think I did a good job considering I self taught myself the leaves and pansy’s (missed the last class!). This is only my second cake after taking classes!

I think my mom would love it reguardless. As mother’s don’t we love every “masterpiece” our child creates?

TOMORROW

Stay tuned tomorrow! I have something cool to share that Jason’t friend Sean came up with for winding ribbon! You aren’t going to believe what a bunch of guy were doing last night! LOL!

Great for all you who participate in ribbon shares or buy by the yard. SERIOUSLY AMAZING STUFF!
