Homemade Holiday Blog Hop Giveaway Winner!

Thank you everyone for all your kind words about my blog hop project! I really appreciate them and enjoyed reading each of them. I am glad to see that a lot of you have similar memories as I do attached to ribbon candy!  It's funny how little things like that bring the memories flooding back, isn't it!  As promised I have drawn a random number using the Random.Org webiste and the winner is lucky number 5!

Congratulations Steffanie! Please send you mailing info to jenniferdewolfe (at) gmail (dot) com and I will send your package out to you!

I noticed a couple of questions in the comments as well as some things I forgot to mention so I figured I would do it hear and now!

  • For my ribbon length I didn't really use a specific length. Each ornament I made is made using what ever the length of ribbon I had seeing as I was using leftover pieces. I did have a minimum size as I wanted more that two loops so I made sure they were at least 6 inches long.
  • To create a mostly uniform loop I used a finger width between the pearl and loop.  If they weren't exactly the same size I did not worry about it.  I thought it gave it character, plus I've never seen a perfect asymetrical piece of ribbon candy either.
  • Every couple of pearls I would knot the fishing line into the ribbon.  This would give the ornament some stability that made it way easier to work with.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Amanda again for hosting another fantastic blog hop! I always enjoy participating and seeing what everyone else does.
