Autumn Kanzashi Hair Clip

Hello there ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here again today and I'm sharing another fun Kanzashi creation using ribbon and accessories from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This would be great as a hair accessory for an adult by adding a French Clip or other clip of your choice.  It would also make a nice pin for a jacket or bag by adding a Pin Back.

I added a Metal Charm to the center and topped it off with a Flat Back Pearl Embellishment.  You can color any white pearl embellishment with Copic Markers or other alcohol inks.  No need to keep a variety of colors on hand.  Just make up the different colors as you need them.

This Kanzashi Creation was made with all 1-1/2" Solid Grosgrain Ribbons using the petal variation in the video below.  While it looks very large in the photo, it only measures a little more than 3-1/4" at the widest point.  It's the perfect size for an understated hair clip.

Kanzashi Ribbon Flower Petal #1

For the top layer of tangerine petals on my project today, I used the technique to create different size petals using all 1-1/2" ribbon squares.  You can find that video tutorial HERE.

I encourage you to give Kanzashi a try.  I bet you'll be hooked!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  As always, I would love to have you swing by my Make Time to Craft blog as well and follow me over there.  Happy crafting!

Sweet Dreams Autumn Sunset Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Fall is peeping around the corner, so it's time to break out your August Ribbon Club Assortment.  Today's Sweet Dream Autumn Sunset card is loaded with fall imagery, gorgeous mixed media texture and of course, beautiful ribbons and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I am loving the plaid ribbons in the August Club.  This 3/8" brown/ivory plaid is the perfect accent for this 5 1/2" square card.  Ribbon is a lovely way to add texture to your cards and layouts. 

After tying this 2 1/2" double loop bow with my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool, I topped it with Mixed Earth Tone Cottage Roses from Wild Orchard Crafts.  These little 25mm roses are the perfect size to add to a bow cluster. 

Inside the card, I added some pretty paper layers and a pocket.

Then I used my scraps to make this little tea bag wallet.

You could also use this as a gift card holder if you did not want to add the tea.

Fall is my favorite season of the year, so I am really enjoying the August Ribbon Club assortment.  After the hot summer we've endured here in North Carolina, I hope you will forgive me for wanting crisp autumn days and cooler autumn nights! 

Wishing you a day filled with joy and creativity!

Time to flourish Page 2 Mini album

Hello everyone, today I have another fun interactive mini album page I designed using the beautiful ribbons, flowers, and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon. This is the second page for the album im slowly working on...hehehehe

On this page I chose to use Really Reasonable Ribbons Satin and Delicate Stitched ribbons. I used the Green for the underneath the bow, and then the delicate stitched for the bow. Next I chose the beautiful Moss Green Satin Ribbon and then placed all my flowers and embellishments on. Each flap is magnetic to help keep the pages closed.

on the inside I chose to create a pocket to hold the tag and photos. Love this design paper, its so pretty! I did add sewing to most of the pieces. also added some brads I had.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies used:
Moss Green Satin
Delicate Stitched Ribbon Mineral Ice
Bronze Leaves
white flower embellishments
Rose buds

Life Is An Adventure

Welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog today, friends.  Thanks for visiting as I (Karen) share a fun card I created using just a few of my RRR favorites!  I started with some fun patterned papers and chipboard (camper) that I picked up at my local Tuesday Morning....always great bargains there!  The sentiment (Life Is An Adventure) is from Paper Sweeties.  Everything else can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I ran a length of the lovely Fuchsia Wrinkled Ribbon down the center of my card.  I bundled some Ivory Burlap String and Navy Burlap String and layered that with some peach magnolias from the Magnolias Mixed Pastels and several navy sweetheart blossoms (from the Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms Mixed Blues), peach sweetheart blossoms (from the Mixed Peach/Orange), and some Miniature Ivory Sweetheart Blossoms.
There are so many gorgeous Mulberry Flowers at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and as you can see on this card; they accent our stamped images so nicely.  I almost framed the journalling spot with my cascading flowers on this card,  I could have gone completely crazy and put them a garden.  But I tried to use some restraint....LOL.  You're always sure to find the perfect ribbons, trims and embellishments at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hello Friend Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a summer inspired greeting card.

I'm not sure why but blue check and yellow is very summery to me.
Speaking of checks....this checkerboard ribbon is a double dose of checks!
The tag in the center is the perfect sentiment for this card. That little bird on wood grain is a great combination.
Lots of pretty flowers here to fill in this corner,
A pair of charms and a vintage button are the perfect finishing touches for this card.

~Really Reasonable Ribbon~Checkerboard Satin Daffodil, Ivory Burlap String

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
