Decoration Ideas #1: Ribbon Works



Hi lovelies,
I trust you all have been doing great. We are already towards the end of November * how time flies* and I thank God for the gift of life and his blessings. It feels good to be here again because I have missed you guys soooo much.
Let me start by apologizing for my absence, it sincerely wasn't deliberate. I got really busy working on a few things and when I was near completion, I took ill. I think the stress got to me but I thank God I'm hale and hearty now.
For the benefit of those who don't know, I find it difficult to choose between my makeup brushes and my hammer/scissors. Hammer/Scissors? Yes hammer, I am an event planner/decorator and I love to turn plain spaces into something beautiful. Each time I see a  plain face or space, I treat it as an artist would treat a blank canvas. I let my creative ideas flow. So while I decide which I love more between Makeup Artistry or Event Decoration, I implore you my darling readers to stay tuned as we explore some decoration ideas.

Ribbons are an essential part of decoration. Their uses are numerous but here are a few
  • Beautify gifts
  • Car decorations
  • Product launches/house dedication
  • Reserve restricted areas

Different types of Ribbon works:

So that's it guys. The designs are pretty easy to make.The yuletide season is fast approaching and I know we all like to decorate our homes.
