Opening Arch atc

I used the 'square gate' piece of chipboard from the same set as yesterday to create a blinged-up closure for my arch atc.  I added mini gems after painting with some textured paint that I had mixed with acrylic paint.

The ribbon was threaded through and wrapped back on itself through the openings in the chipboard piece and one side permanently glued with the other left free to re- thread the ribbon for closure.

Simple but pretty :-)
