Reverse Frayed Ribbon with Zoofari Zebra

My upline Kristin is going to crack up when she see's this post. I totally did not like the Zoofari set at all in the preview. And I made a few comments about it, well, then I used it at one of her meetings and it started to grow on me. When today I'm using it, and guess what-I LOVE IT!!! Moving on...
I wanted to show you what you could do with the leftover piece of ribbon that you have when you cut it to get the frayed look. I've been saving these pieces, but look what I came up with last night!!!!Start by cutting out the Zebra from Zoofari. When you cut him, cut off his mane and tail. He should look like this.
Now cut to fray your ribbon. If you haven't done this before, cut the one end of your ribbon off and then pull the frays off.
Your should now have 2 pieces like this. I tied a knot in the frayed pieces to keep them together and to make them easier to work with.
Now the fun begins. Place some adhesive on the back of your zebra around his mane and his tail. Snip a piece of the reverse frayed piece to the length that his mane would be. Now stick the other piece on his butt to make a tail.
Look how cute he is!!!!! I tried to get him up close so you could see it good.
This is him finished. Think of all the possiblities with this idea!!! Have fun!!!!
