Ribbon Candy bell door hanger

Made this for a box swap for my upline meetup last week.   I was inspired by
  This was a  challenge at first. At first i wanted to use Stampin up's Wide R & W stripped Ribbon because i know it will store easier from year to year but when i made a sample the ribbon wouldn't hold apart and it was a very condensed size and i wanted it to spread out some.  I finally decided on using some spackle tape to give the ribbon substance to stay apart some..  It worked great and then at the end i sprinkled dazzling diamonds on it and it sticks easily to the spackle tape and who doesn't like some Bling for the holiday right.

The ribbon length is 18inches long and i cut the Spackle tape the same length but i then cut the spackle tape in half.  Don't worry, it's ok not to have it cover the whole ribbon.  I used  Stampin ups' tool kit needle and used the red grosgrain ribbon to run through the stripped ribbon and the bells. I used two 6inch pieces of stampin ups' tinsel ribbon for the top and the bottom.  lastly used Su's decorative punch  on whisper white for the sentiment at the top.  TFL  Enjoy this was really fun to do.
