This is Evelyn from My Little Craft Blog.
 I’m honored and excited to be a guest designer for 3 Girl JAM! 

When I saw all the beautiful ribbons and fibers in the shop, it was hard to choose what I wanted to work with, but I was drawn to the textures of the jute.  The colors are so vibrant and natural.  I had to have them!  I picked them up not quite knowing what I wanted to do with them.

As I was adding water to my plant cuttings, I decided they needed a new home – a pretty home!  I found an interesting shaped glass vase at the Dollar Tree and inspiration hit.  I used my ATG gun to make four evenly-spaced lines down the sides of the vase and began wrapping with the natural colored jute ribbon.  A glue dot provided the adhesive for the very end of the ribbon, and the coffee jute string made a pretty bow. 

I also picked up the Coffee Bundle of crinkled ribbon and can’t wait to play with that!

Here’s a little about me:
I’m a wife, mother, sister, teacher, crafter, blogger, knitter, reader, walker.  My favorites: drink – coffee; foods – pizza and chocolate; color – brown; science – astronomy; vegetable – peas; weather – thunderstorms.

Thank you so much for inviting me to be a guest designer for 3GirlJam!
