Working Out "Crafty" Problems . . . .

Hi Stampers!

Well, believe it or not, this isn't gonna be a completely"Stampin' Up!" kind of post :)

I've been working a lot over in the stress lab at the hospital, and one of my friends there has a wedding coming up - not hers, but her son's.  She's been doing all kinds of crafty things for wedding favors, etc.

She brought in door hangers she had printed up today, and was trying to figure out how to either attach ribbon or punch a circle in them to hang.

Of COURSE I had some suggestions to offer!!

I wrote down the dimensions and came home to ponder the possibilities for her.

Here's the sample with the hole punched and a slit cut:






Here's the sample with my take on how to attach the ribbon using Stampin' Up! Mini Brads:

I put each brad over one of the silver circles on the ribbon - sneaky!!



I texted her the photos and we both agreed the ribbon one looks classier.  Now this was definitely MY kind of "problem"!

Supplies:

1 1/4" Circle Punch
Paper Snips
Mini Brads
Paper Piercing Tool
Paper Piercing Mat Pack
Basic Gray cardstock

I'll be giving her the Mini Brads she needs and loaning her my Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to use.  Hey, gotta help out the groom's mom, right?  What crafty problems have YOU solved lately?  Shoot me a comment!!

Happy stampin'!
