Did you know that you can put all kinds of media through a rolling mill to impress a design? That notion sent me to the craft store looking for all kinds of crafty things to use. I came up with ribbon and paper borders for scrapbooking. Here's a sampling......
I picked up all of these ribbons and paper borders at my local Michael's store. Of these patterns, I liked the off-center flowers created by the brown floral ribbon. Which is your favorite?
Speaking of favorites, here are my favorite bead bloggers with some beady love.....
