May Arts Ribbon new release hop


The new fibers of spring/summer 2015 are here and the DT for May Arts ribbon are welcoming them with an inspirational hop.  Stop by the May Arts Ribbon blog to see all the newbies and how we would use them.
Today I get to introduce you all to a brand new kind of elastic.
These come in five natural colors and have a nice strong elastic.  I already know this will be one of my favorite.  Below you can see how they compare to some of the latest releases (That I love also).
The middle is the new release and you can see how they compare.  The one on the left is truly an elastic string.  It's round and great for holding things together.  The right one you all know and love.  It's the fun playful elastic great for headbands and dress up.
This middle one I like to think of as the best of both.  It's playful and lays flat like but sturdy and strong.

For today I made the perfect example of how to use this ribbon.  As a cute binder to hold all my journals and pens together.
To make: Just cut two pieces of felt.  Take both ends of the elastic and glue it to one of the pieces.  Add the top felt piece and stitch around the shape.
There it is a cute holder for all your stuff.
Up next is Mallika Kejriwal.  Don't forget to stop by the May Arts blog to see all the great new ribbon and a chance to win them all too!

Good idea to have an elastic that is useful for projects - not just decorative. Oftentimes I'm looking for something to hold some pieces together but don't have anything that stretches. Yah, May Arts.
