Tattered Angels and May Arts...SWEET!

hello all!  So happy to have the opportunity to have a blast playing with the May Arts ribbons and Tattered Angels products...seriously beautiful selection and quality.  The possibilities are truly endless!
in playing with the May Arts ribbons this week, i decided to use them in a few different ways...this is an altered portfolio keeper that i designed for a "List" project i am working on (below)...
to begin with i traded out the standard elastic with this awesome stretchy Lace for my closure (above)...worked perfectly!
i then used some of the versatile silk ribbon on the inside to lace up some brads and create a place to stash mementos (below)...
i affixed some of the vintage-looking Crochet Ribbon with brads heat embossed with Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glam for a detailed edge to my sewn-on pocket (below)...

i tinted some of the Solid/Center Stitched ribbon with Glimmer Mist (below) and used them to decorate my Glimmer Mist tinted tags...
finally, i used my favorite of all of the ribbons i worked with - the Solid/Wrinkled Ribbon - and created a simple accent bow on the inside...
...and again on the outside.  this time i used more of the silk ribbon (crumpled and dipped in Glimmer Mist) tied with it for accent.
the finished portfolio has all kinds of places to hide and/or display things (below).  the Tattered Angels products gave it sparkle and shine; the May Arts gave it all kinds of ribbony goodness!
thank you for stopping go play with some ribbon!
