Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Tippy Thursday - Ribbon

I have been asked how I made this kind of tassel for my tag...

It's a bit different and it's very easy......


Take a length of satin ribbon and cut off the binding edge on both sides, this will allow you to shred the warp threads from the weft.  Now you repeat the process on the other end and hey presto.....


         a fancy ribbon for the tag I made and didn't know what to do with it....actually I still don't, but at least the tag is finished now!
