Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Ribbon Challenge

This week, Heart 2 Heart Challenge asks that we use ribbon in our project.  Ribbon is probably the my favorite embellishment.  One of the reasons is, many of my hand-made cards are mailed out rather than handed out.  I have had so many unfortunate instances where the recipient sadly told me that she did not receive an intact card because part of it was ripped off.  :(  Ribbon, however, is flat and is mail friendly, so it always remains my go-to embellishment.

I have always wanted to explore all the shapes available in the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  It offers 700 but I think so far I have only tried 10 to 15% of it.  I have yet tried all the 3-D projects so I tried the pillow box today and put some ribbon around it.  Voila!  A nice gift box:

You know, you just get addicted to making more.  So I've made a version 2 of the pillow box:

It turns out that making ribbon flowers is even more addictive than making the pillow box.  I'll stop blogging and make more ribbon flowers!
