May Arts Ribbon DT Audition/Tutorial (Final Round)

Hello everyone,
I cant tell you how excited and Honored I am to have been chosen among all the participants to participate in the 2nd Round (Final) for May Arts Ribbon Design Team Call. I absolutely LOVE all of May Arts ribbons,laces,trims and so on, and I would LOVE to be a Prima Ribbonista. As many of you know, I absolutely LOVE working with Ribbons,laces,and trims, and use LOTS on all my projects, its one of my favorite embellishments when it comes to crafting anything!
Today's Project is Decorated Lantern
Using May Arts Ribbon to create all my flowers for this floral piece./VIDEO Tutorial at the end of my post
For my project I decided to go a little bit outside of the box. I wanted to show that I can indeed work with ribbon, and create some beautiful flowers using beautiful ribbons, and trims from May Arts Ribbon. For the last year I have been on a floral decorating kick, and thought how fun would it be to make my flowers for the floral arrangement, instead of buying them. FUN!!!!This lantern was designed for my Kitchen. I also will be using more of the Daisy Flowers in a Mini Album, as I thought these would be perfect in one as well.
