Silk Ribbon Embroidery - Miniature Samplers

This weekend I was caught up in a hive of activity, where these Mini, Ribbon Embroidery Samples were conceived.
To create these Mini's,  the Silk Ribbon Embroidery stitches were sewn onto a piece of Satin or Silk Ribbon, then attached, with double sided tape, to a mini card name tag.  The Mini samplers are approximately 4cm wide by 6cm in length. The Silk Ribbon engaged is 2mm, 4mm  and 7mm wide.
