Ribbon Pleating
our sponsor for this challenge is
Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none.
Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel?  Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft.  Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all!  Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects, or visit our blog they use nothing but ribbon.  Go on, have a try... It's worth it 

So onto my creation for this challenge

The lace is from a local shop. The ribbon is from my stash and i have used some Viva pearls and all fairies have to have glittered wings.
