I am usually the last one to submit my project for the Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge. But...I thought the video that I made over the weekend would tie in with this weeks challenge.
The challenge this week from Judy Goddard is Ingenuity. Ingenuity is my middle name. Or should I say duct tape is my middle name. If I cant figure out how something is assembled or the screws don't fit, I pull out the duct tape. My Dad calls it IN-GIG-U-NUS a word commonly used to describe someone who figures out how to make something work. Sometimes called jerry-rigging. I have an engineering mind. I can usually figure out how something works and can fix it, as I mentioned before I will not hesitate to use duct tape to achieve my goal. I should have stock in the company :-).
For this weeks challenge I included the video instructions on how to make a wired ribbon bow. I have had to use a bit of ingenuity to make the bow work, as I have arthritis in my thumbs I had to learn how to make the bow another way.
Just in time for the holidays. You can make fantastic bows for your packages. This is my first attempt at making a How To video
