7. Only send things you would like to use. Please remember everyone has different tastes and like to use items we personally don’t care for. Trying different things that we may not like helps us to think outside the box... and many times we may be surprised with how much we like the finished product! You may learn to use colors or objects that you might not be familiar with and that is a lot of the fun!

Tulle Flower Tutorial

Here's a Video Tutorial on how to make
the Tulle Flowers I've been posting lately.

Completed Flowers:

You can make the flowers using
silk fabric like the brown one above.
The trick though is it needs
the actual flame to it to melt.

Here's the silk flower was made into a lapel
pin and It's hangs nicely on my scrap bag.

Here's a LO using one of the
small red ones as an embellishment.

I used the February kit to make this adorable little gift bag that I plan to fill up with heart candies and hershey kisses to give to my hubby! Want to make one? It's easy!

- Cut 5 1/2 " x 10 1/2" from solid cardstock
- Score 1 1/4 " from each long side and 4 1/4" from each short side.
- Cut on the last two score lines 1" to other score lines.
- Punch (or cut as I did) 3/8" from the top of the front.
- Use gel pen to make stitching lines around the top of the purse and the punched opening.
- Fold on lines, folding small tabs to inside and adhere the sides.
- Cut belly band from patterned paper 1 1/2" x12" and adhere to front.
- Cut closure band from solid cardstock 1 1/2" x 7".
- Cut patterned paper 1" x 7" and adhere to centre of closure band. Add stitching lines and then adhere to the back under the belly.

Juju Bee's Clean Sweep Challenge #1

Organizing is key to making
your space more efficient.
You want to look at a few key things
about your space and you crafting
style before you start.

What do you have a lot of? Maybe
it’s ribbon or stickers or paper.
What amount of space do you have to
organize your supplies?
Do you have drawer space, shelves,
empty walls, cabinets?
Look at what you use most such as tools &
adhesives; are they in an easy reach area?

Each Monday starting February 1st,
a new challenge will be posted.
You will need to post a before and after
photo of the challenge space and post
it in the appropriate thread.
Photos will need to posted by the next Monday.

Each Challenge post will have ideas of how to
organize the challenge area such as, ribbon,
paper, buttons, stickers ect.
How you organize it is up to you and your needs.
Organizing doesn’t have to be a
pricey venture and I hope to include
thrifty solutions for each challenge.

You will not need to participate every week.
The challenge is mainly just to
help you organize your space.
For each challenge you complete your name
will go into a drawing at the end for a prize!
The prize will be posted in a just a few weeks.

I hope you get to play along and have fun!
Go here to start with the
Juju Bee's Clean Sweep Challenge.

Feb 1st, 2010/ Feb 8, 2010 – Ribbon
Juju Bee's Forum Thread.
This week your challenge is to organize your ribbon stash.
Below are a few ideas to get you started.
Remember to post a before and after photo.

Juju Bee’s Store offers the
following solutions from Making Memories:

A blog post on Little Birdie Secrets offered these solutions:

EllaBella Designs had a wonderful post with the following options.

I currently keep my ribbon pinned or in little baggies in clear drawers. I like this method because I usually think of a color I’d like for my project, go to that drawer and I can easily look through my ribbon. Small scraps or thin ribbon is put into small baggies you can find in the craft department at Wal-mart.

I use ribbon a lot and it became an issue when it was time to pack for crops.
I’ve been seeing these wonderful bags by Pull-EZ which retail for over $18.00.

These are wonderful, but I didn’t need a bag that big, nor could I find one locally. So one day while strolling through the make-up isle I saw small clear bags. The plastic is thick and it’s easy to take a Crop-a-dile and punch holes where you wish.

I need to warn you, I made the one below with too many holes and put in way too much ribbon. I put in about 2ft – 3ft of each ribbon. That exceeded the limits of the bag.

So I’ve redone the bag with less holes spaced about 1 ½ inches apart from each other in every direction. There are holes in both sides of course. This will help insure the ribbon will pull easily and not become stuck.

These would be awesome to make one for each color in your stash and they are a steal at only $2.00 a bag.

Okay Ladies, now that you have a few ideas I can’t wait to see what you come up with for your storage solution.

Remember your photos for this challenge need be posted under this thread.
Challenge photos are due Next Monday Feb 8th, 2010.
