Snow Much Fun by Jenn Cochran

Good morning friends and followers of Really Reasonable Ribbon.  So glad you could join me on this last Saturday before Christmas.  I am Jenn Cochran from Jax Bean Stalks.  Today I have an adorable Christmas card to share with you.  It features several Really Reasonable Ribbon items.  Don't forget to scroll to the bottom to peek at my video on how I made this card!  Would LOVE a thumbs up if you like it!

I have a four layered bow on the front of this Gate Fold Window Card.  My 1st layer is a popular ribbon, It is 1.5" Circus Dots in Red.  Then I added Mini Pom Poms in red.  Next up is Swiss Dots in Apple Green.  Finally one of my favorite ribbons that Bonnie carries at RRR, 1/4" Chevron Striped Twill in Red.

I started off  by stapling my Circus dots into two loops, then I glued down the pom poms.  Next I made bows out of the Satin Swiss Dots and the Chevron Twill.  I layered them together with glue too.  Finally I added on the Maya Road Bingo piece.  

Thanks for joining me today.  Merry Christmas!

Cocoa and Cookies Recipe Book

Hi everyone, it's Teresa here to share with all of you a book that I designed to keep all the recipes that I am getting for my Christmas Eve party this year.  I found lots of recipes for fun things to do, a hot chocolate bar with lots of cookies and I needed something special to put them in right?

To make the book, I started with a pre-made one by Want2Scrap and then I decorated it with lots of stickers and other goodies by Basic Grey.  I love this adorable little snowman and his little hat. For the edges on the book, I chalked it up with a little white chalk ink to make it look like snow.  To give
it more dimension be sure and use lots of foam dots under the stickers.

And the best part was getting lots of ribbons from my Winter Wonderland set and tying them up on the rings on the outside to match.  I have lots of them on the inside too and it looks really, really cute.
There is lots more to do like getting all the recipes in that I want to use but that is half the fun of it.

Here is one of the inside pages that I did so that you can get the idea of how I did it.  

Thanks for stopping over and don't forget to leave a comment to let us know how you like the ribbons this month and share what you did with us on the challenge this month!!

It's a Banner Day!

Hello, Friends!  Kathy here to announce that it's a banner day here on the RRR blog!  I don't know what it is about banners, but they can make every day feel like a special day.  They are fun to make, pretty to hang, and loads of fun. I made some really cute little Christmas banners featuring luscious ribbons and fun embellies, and I thought you might enjoy seeing one of them here.

This banner was made using MME Vintage Christmas papers.  I stitched my individual pennant pieces onto a 3 foot length of Natural Mesh Ribbon and then used the totally festive red and white Wavy Vertical Stripe ribbon and Emily White Crochet Lace to make it feel extra Christmassy!

The open weave of the natural mesh ribbon is easy to sew through, which is important to think about when you are stitching through multiple layers of paper.  It's also really strong, and hangs well, too.  I was able to make this merry little banner in just a couple of hours, so if you're looking for last minute Christmas decor ideas, this might be one you'd like to consider.  Now, it can be Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by,

Santa is Coming to Town....

Hello there RRR peeps!   I am winding down with my Christmas about you?  I am ready to start with my baking very soon!  Got things ordered for my son...and getting primed for gift wrapping.   It is my day here at RRR.   I have a couple of projects to share.  Both oversize ornaments...or table top decor.  Lots of my yummy layers that I love so much....I used circus dots in redred and black seam binding, and red gingham.   Love to mix those ribbons up.....don't be afraid to use more than one type of ribbon in your projects.   I think it adds eclectic charm.

Well that is it for me...  hope you are enjoying the season that is upon us!   Hugs, Cherry
