Round 3 - Ribbon Caterpillar

Let round 3 of Paper Crafts Gallery Idol begin! So thrilled to have gotten this far and I couldn't have done it without all of you guys! (Round 2 was definitely a nail biter and I think I'm lucky to have any nails left...haha! So many talented ladies this year!) Thanks for all the support from round 1 & 2 and I'd love your support again for round 3! :) I hope you'll consider voting for me again!

This time the challenge was to use ribbon. I decided to weave the ribbon and create a caterpillar body!  Each caterpillar piece is created by weaving ribbon and I've also placed some of the extra ribbon pieces inside each body piece -- this gives the caterpillar a little oomph (and dimension).

In addition to creating the caterpillar, I also wanted him to roll up. Each "body piece" is connected by a brad. By slowly unrolling the caterpillar, you can slowly see the sentiment come to life piece by piece.

 I opted to pick different shades of green to give the caterpillar some fun. I chose a dotted green ribbon, satin ribbon and grosgrain ribbon (and all different widths). Each piece I randomly wove pieces together so each body piece is unique. 

The sentiment is created using Modern Alphabet from Clean and Simple Stamps. LOVE alphabet sets to create your own fun sentiments and customized cards!

Thanks for stopping by and please don't forget to VOTE!
