So this is my entry to the Craftster Reuse/Recycle challenge, I actually made this for another local Reused Art contest but given that I would miss the deadline for the entries on Craftster (only noticed the challenge 2 days before me hols) I asked if I could submit this project, and I could  Grin

It was super fun to make and just the result of a lucky bit of messing around with my beloved medal ribbon stash I scored at a thrift store some time ago (33 ribbons in total and 11 m in length) this project was made using the scraps leftover from a number of other Medal ribbon projects I posted to my blog (posting to Craftster too shortly)

The technique is called a Scrappy star but I didn't iron or measure, I just got stuck in and lo and behold it ended up looking like a Union Jack which was cool because I'm also a proud Brit abroad. I just kept adding until I had a square.


Anyway hope you like it, I'm obsessed with medal ribbons so if you have a stash let me know and I'm sure we can come to some (coughs discreetly) a'hem arrangement  Wink


Please don't forget to vote for your favourite challenge entry, there are some great projects and only 27 votes cast so far (20th Sep 2012 is the cut off for votes)
