Beautiful bows with May Arts & Helmar!

Be sure to stop by the Helmar Blog each day this week for incredible inspiration using May Arts Ribbons!!

I loved this gorgeous sheer ribbon that has a wire built into it to help it keep its shape. It makes the most beautiful puffy bows! The perfect adhesive for sheer ribbon is Helmar 450 Quick Dry - b/c it's super thick and dries so fast, so clear, your ribbon is going to be the steal of your layout, not your adhesive! I used this super adorable WS-Matilda by The Greeting Farm. She is so much fun to color and I love the way her hair turned out - it was a new hair color I tried using C4, C6, C8 & RV66 all over. The paper is one of my favorites right now by Authentique. I love their 6x6 paper pads for making cards and small layouts like this. I used Helmar Tape Runner to adhere all the paper including the doily behind sweet Matilda which I got at Creating is Fun (which btw everything is currently 15% off). You can probably tell from the cut off calendar that this is a page in the Birthday Calendar I had been working on FOREVER - Finally finished it this past weekend and now I just have to figure out the Bind-it-All so I can finally give it to my mama!!!
