Anna Griffin Mannequin Makeover

I have been searching and searching for a way to organize and store my ribbon and I think I finally found it!

I found an old wire mannequin at a local furniture resale store just waiting to be loved.

Eventually, I am going to "Annatize" my entire craftroom, but thought this would make a perfect addition.  I first spray painted the mannequin with Krylon Off White in a matte finish.  It dried fairly quickly, in less then an hour.

I then accented the base with a gold paint pen.

I broke into my Anna Griffin Minc machine and minc'd several butterflies that came with the machine.  I used toner sheets (included in the HSN package) to cut every butterfly available from Anna's Cricut cartridges and minc'd those in gold as well.  I also used Anna's butterfly cut and emboss die to add some butterflies with depth.  I paired the butterflies with some of Anna's gold scrolls and applied them to the mannequin using glue dots.

I added a gold vinyl border (Cricut ~ gold) to the waistline using Anna's Lattice Border Punches (cool set...comes with 3 interchangeable punches).  To complete the look, I added one of Anna's large gold ribbons from her ribbon set.  Now, I just need to add my open stock ribbon.  I will add a pic once I complete my organization. ;)
