My Altered Baby Box using Ribbon & lace

Well Hello there!  How are you doing today? Great to see you here. Today I have a fun altered frame to share with you.I used so many Really Reasonable Ribbons and I couldn't be more delighted.

This is my finished project but you really can't appreciate it till you see how it started and what I added.
Oh yea, this is the baby frame I picked up during one of my junking trips.Cute? sure it is but really not my style at all.
Let me share how I changed this $1.00 find into a treasure.
 The frame was pulled apart and each of the inside pieces were traced on the back of new papers and fussy cut out to put new clothes in my frame. The yellow isn't horrible on the frame but I wanted to tone down just a little. Decided to add a Brown Organza ribbon around the entire outside of the frame.I know you can see the Scor-Tape but you will see what I do to take care of that. I wanted to make sure my ribbon stays where I put it.
Don't these papers look better already? Bet you see one of my favorite laces? Well no altered project would be complete without some beautiful Amelia White Crochet Lace .
Well now I needed to finish off the outside of the frame and cover up my Scor-Tape under the sheer ribbon.
This Gingham Yellow 3/8 Inch  is just perfect and also to add bows in the inside on the hangars.
 So let me share it all put together, I just love the Gingham Yellow 3/8 Inch ribbon especially the bow on the top.
I just popped a few pictures of my oldest daughter when she was a baby. She will cringe I am sure!

So today is the last day with the present team at Really Reasonable Ribbon, this has been one of the best companies to create with. I have been and always will be a Really Reasonable Ribbon lover, can't wait to see which ones of us will be returning
Good Luck to everyone - I am looking forward to seeing the new team announced.
