Do you think it needs ribbon? I think it might make it better, but I don't want to add too much.
Whew, this was difficult to cover. Not bad for the first one, but I can't say I could figure out how to do it differently for the second one. Made this for a friend having a birthday who collects Coca Cola things. If she puts it on a top shelf it will be ok-no one will see the mistakes from there.
I might have to make me one of these-it looks like it belongs with my 50's red chrome table and chairs.

I don't usually make too many comments, although I am looking all the time at the amazing work on this site. This is awesome! I have been looking for Coca Cola stuff the last couple days to make a birthday gift for my sister who collects. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Very cute! I could definitely see this on a shelf or as a centerpiece on one of those 50s chrome style tables! To ribbon or not to ribbon - it looks great as it but a little ribbon never hurts. :-) I am sure your friend will love it!

I guarantee your Coca Cola nut is gonna go NUTS over this! It is absolutely adorable and how fun that it is so customized to her love of Coca Cola stuff......It's awesome....
And about the ribbon....it really is great without it....but if you wanted to add a little tho'.....would you be able to punch a small hole in the paper next to the photo circle off to one side and just loop a few short pieces of ribbon though the photo circle. You could even tie it together with the big white pearl beads if the holes in the beads are large enough to push some ribbon through them...would be cute to have the bead holding the ribbon in place....
It truly is wonderful the way it is, she is gonna to ape over this!
