Ripped Ribbon Results

I got around to picking up some linen on super sale at the fabric store after work on Thursday and tore off about 15 lengths in verious widths to try and recreate the perfectly imperfect shabby chic bows shown a few posts below. It was definitely the missing touch the tree needed to add a little character and who can argue with the insanely affordable price? It actually inspired me to perhaps go back and buy some more to use as the ribbon on all our gifts. I also wandering into the back yard and clipped a few lengths of evergreen to mount above the window for an extra festive touch!
