Welcome to May Arts Week

Welcome to May Arts Week on the Paper Crafter’s Library Blog!  We’re so excited to partnering with May Arts to showcase their stunning ribbons. I don’t know about you, but here at Paper Crafter’s Library we’re ribbon lovers – you’ll find ribbon on almost all of our projects – which is why we’re so thrilled to have May Arts as an Invited Sponsor. You haven’t seen ribbon until you’ve seen May Arts Ribbon – they offer a multitude of different colors and styles of ribbon to suit any preference and taste –  and all of it, top quality!

Every day this week we’ll be sharing fantastic projects featuring May Arts ribbons created by both the May Arts Design Team as well as the Paper Crafter’s Library Designers/Educators. At the end of this week, two lucky winners will receive their choice of FOUR rolls of ribbon from the May Arts website. One winner will be drawn from all the comments left either here on the Paper Crafter’s Library blog or the Paper Crafter’s Library Facebook page , and one winner will be drawn from all the comments left either on the May Arts Blog or the May Arts Facebook Page. Remember, each comment you leave is one entry, so be sure to visit every day not only for the great project ideas, but also to enter your name into our give-away.

About May Arts

May Arts Ribbon was founded in the early 1980’s in Riverside, Connecticut. The original products were high-end silk flowers imported from Taiwan, which were decorated using quality ribbons. The decorative ribbons proved so popular among customers that the business gradually evolved into a dedicated ribbon wholesaler. 

As a family-owned and operated business, May Arts began a long-standing tradition of quality, affordability and exceptional customer service. We are dedicated to carrying on this same tradition by offering high quality products at competitive prices. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer your questions or to assist you in placing your order. 

May Arts carries a wide selection of quality ribbons to choose from; such as grosgrain, silk, satin, burlap and a variety of prints and patterns. All inventory is held in stock, so we can ship orders out right away—typically the same day.
Where to Buy May Arts Ribbons

The May Arts website is their wholesale site for online and brink and mortar retailers.  We’ve linked to it so that you can easily view their entire product line in one place.  There are numerous places where you can purchase May Arts Ribbons including many local scrapbook stores as well as online stores. Two of the online stores that carry the biggest selections that we are aware of include Amazon, who carry the complete May Arts Ribbon Line (plus you can qualify for free shipping).  Click on the link we provided and it will take you to our May Arts Ribbon Search Results. To find a particular ribbon, go to the May Arts website, find the name of the ribbon and color and then enter that into your Amazon search results.  Please note that through Amazon you’re buying by the roll.  Most other online and local scrapbook stores sell May Arts Ribbon by the yard.  One of the online stores that carries a great selection is Ribbon Carousel.

May Arts Design Team Project

To start off the week, we have May Arts Designer Charlene Driggs.   You will find her project below, but first here is a little bit about Charlene:

Charlene DriggsHi!  My name is Charlene Driggs.  My husband and I live in the Tropical South with our little Havanese, Bentley.  We have two grown sons, one lovely daughter-in-law and 2 adorable (of course!) grandchildren.

My favorite paper art projects are gift sets.  I love to take ordinary everyday items and turn them into something beautiful using papers, ink, lush ribbons and other embellishments.  My style would probably be considered eclectic as I enjoy a variety of styles.  My current favorites are Clean and Simple (CAS) and romantic vintage.

I am humbled and honored to be a part of the amazing May Arts Design Team,and the Rubbernecker Stamps and the Sparkle N Sprinkle Design Teams.


Thrifty Gifting Altered Notebooks

As the Prima Ribbonista at May Arts Ribbon,  I’m so honored to be sharing with you today on the Paper Crafter’s Library blog.  I love all things crafty but my main love is paper crafting. Whether it’s altering an existing product or starting one from scratch, it’s all good.  I also love to save money on my paper crafting hobby (habit!) whenever I can.

Gift giving is fun but it can also be costly, so when I’m out at the craft or department stores, I’m always on the lookout for things that can be altered.  I picked up a supply of plain notebooks a while ago.  I love to keep these in my stash ready to be altered for thrifty gift giving.  Using a few beautiful papers, some embellishments and gorgeous May Arts Ribbons, I’m going to show you how you can turn this:

May Arts Week Day 1

Into this:

May Arts Day 1

There are many adhesives available for this type of paper craft however; I like to use Tombow Mono- Multi because it allows me a few extra seconds to move my papers around to make sure they’re straight.   I chose the soft paper line called 5th Avenue by Melissa Francis.  I love the soft vintage color pallet in this paper pack.

I like to gather an assortment of ribbons, embellishments and letters together as I tend to create as I go rather than having an exact plan.  I try to pick up embellishments whenever I see them on clearance even if I don’t have a plan to use them right away as I’ve found they always get used or shared with a friend.

I chose May Arts 5/8” Crochet Lace (361-58-10), ¾” Velvet in a lush soft pink (PV-34-17), 3/8” Black Velvet Ric Rac

(WR10 ) and for the flower, I used May Arts 3” Black Bias wide Cut Satin (KK10) to compliment these papers beautifully.

To create the flower, I used a pattern by Pins and Needles, May Arts 3” Bias Cut Satin and a candle to curl the edges.  I simply followed the directions using the provided pattern, and then added a few pink beads from my collection for the center.

 May Arts Day 1

After creating my flower, I cut and measured my papers, then attached them to the notebook front using Tombow Mono-Multi.   Next, I layered May Arts Crochet Lace, Pink Velvet and Black Ric Rac ribbons using strong double sided tape over the seam created by the two papers I chose.  A strip of narrow double sided tape and some string pearls from my stash covers the top seam.  The flower was attached using Crystal Effects as I want to make sure it doesn’t come off during use.  A metal lock and Key by Dear Lizzy/American Crafts adds another touch of pink to the color scheme.

The Grunge letters by Tim Holtz (picked up at a local overstock store for $2.99!) were pressed into a black ink pad then attached with double sided tape.  For the pen, I just rolled up a narrow strip of the designer paper and shoved it into the pen barrel.

That’s it!  A useful, elegant, gift thanks to May Arts Ribbon.  Thanks for joining me at Paper Crafter’s Library.  I hope you’ve been inspired to create your own “Thrifty Gifts”!  You can find Charlene here: Charlene Driggs, May Arts Ribbon Prima Ribbonista

Paper Crafter’s Library Designer Projects

Now, below you can see some projects created by yours truly (Andrea – Creative Director & Founder of Paper Crafter’s Library) and Tracy- Senior Educator/Designer here at Paper Crafter’s Library.

In the card below I used some of the gorgeous May Arts Chevron Patterned Yellow Ribbon (called Twill/Stripes) as an accent to Prima’s Sun Kiss Collection which I used to create the card shown below.  We’ve filmed a free video tutorial on how to create the card which you can watch below.

Download the pdf handout here

You can watch a video on how to create this Sweet card here.

In the card below Tracy uses May Art’s Baker’s Twine to create the tail on her kite.

There is a video tutorial and handout for this project available to our Paper Crafter’s Library members.

So there you have it! Day 1 of our celebration of May Arts! Be sure to stay tuned for tomorrow’s post with more great projects and another free video tutorial!

  3. When I opened the blog today, I felt like I had hit the JACKPOT! There is so much inspiration here and it is only Monday. First there is Charlene’s gorgeous notebook. I love how you altered the notebook, Charlene. It would be ideal for keeping track of ideas, inspirational moments, etc. Then I learn that the week is dedicated to May Arts. Whoo,hooo! I love their great selection of ribbon! If that isn’t enough inspiration, there is Andrea’s card. Andrea, your card is sooo sweet! The “yellow” pearls really pulled the card together. Great idea to color them to match the card and I love how you used both sides of the bracket. It is a simple tip, but one we all often overlook. Finally, there is Tracy’s beautiful card. It is so inspiring. l love the use of the twine as the kite string and the embossed clouds. I think we are all in for a great week here at PCL! Thanks for an inspiring Monday.
