Sweet Fox Valentine Candy Pocket

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all! Today I have these darling Candy Fox Heart Pockets I made using all heart shape die cuts, and Really Reasonable Ribbon, and embellishments.  I made 12 of these to give at our Doll Club Meeting for February, for a Valentine's Day exchange. I thought they would be cute and fun to give to the ladies. I really enjoyed making these, and thought next time I will have to try to make some Kitty Cats maybe, they would be super cute too!

To start with I cut out 24 large hearts, remember they are pouches to hold a candy, so the back is the same as the front. I then glued the edges together to create 12. Next I took a smaller heart and cut 12 white for the fox's face, and cut it in half, and then cut a little off of it, and glued it down to the top. I thought, wouldn't it be darling to have the eyes heart shaped as well, so I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's Heart Shaped Pearls, and then added the black to the centers. Now if you have those black pearls really small, you can use those, but I had the viva pen, and used it. The tip isn't working so well on it, so the dots don't come out as great as they used to, but it worked., Next I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's White 8mm pearl, and colored it black for the nose. The ears I used 2 different sizes of hearts, and then made 2 different bows and added a flower to the center. Love making these darling foxes, they were so fun. Next I am going to try to make some kitty cats, I think they would be so darling too!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies used:
8mm flat backed Pearl
11mm white pearl bead heart shape
10mm Resin flower
Ribbon Club assortment for the bows
Delicate Stitched Ribbon
Scotch Advanced Tape Refill
Saved Wire from all the Mulberry flowers

Other Supplies:
Heart dies
Viva Pearl pen in black
branch punch
design paper

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, and thank you for stopping by!

Hugs to all,

Bee Tag Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I'm still having such a great time working with the Spring Farmhouse Collection from Prima.
This patterned paper coordinates perfectly with the Light Gray Wrinkle Ribbon.
I am sooo in love with this plaid paper.
I went for a double bow for a luxe look. More is better after all.
Layers of flowers with die cut foliage creates a nice full arrangement.
This gorgeous bee image is part of the journal cut aparts. I cut it into a tag shape and added it over a crisp white die cut doily, vintage button, bee charm, and sequins.

~Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Light Gray Wrinkle Ribbon, Ivory Burlap String.

Wishing  everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Hey Cupcake, Will You be My Valentine? by Cherry's Jubilee Home

Hi my sweet ribbon friends! Cherry here to share today on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog. I have a fun little gift ensemble to share today. It starts with this over the top cute "Hey cupcake" card..then you open the card and it says "will you be my valentine"?
 How cute is this inside?  Lots of sweet details my friends! It would make anyone feel cute for grand-kids.
 I used  Bay Leaf Seam Binding for my ribbon.

 Then, of course I could not leave well enough alone and added this sweet mini pinwheel is wrapped with confetti grosgrain ribbon.  I layered die cut flowers on top on each other and adhered them to the top of the spool.  I added homemade paper fringe to bottom.  Such a sweet gift set.   Well that is it for me today!  hugs, cherry

Oh, Baby!

Hello and thanks for taking a moment to stop by today. Today it's Karen Letchworth here sharing a sweet baby card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used a sweet line called Oh, Baby from Simple Stories, and I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.  While that card didn't have any ribbons on it, you know I couldn't resist.  For me, the card simply isn't finished until I've added the ribbons!
I attached my patterned papers together using strips of an amazing Adhesive called Scor-Tape.  I attached an oval journalling piece to the journalling card (if that makes sense).  I did this to "hide" the writing on the card.  I placed the giraffes sticker over the journalling piece, and I topped that with another sticker (Oh, Baby) using 3-D Adhesive Foam Tabs to raise it up.  I did the same thing with the heart stickers by attaching the 3-D Adhesive Foam Tabs to those as well.  I added some White Flatback Pearls to the heart stickers.
I also added some different washi tapes and stickers.  Then came the really fun part....the ribbons!  I ran a width of Cream Seam Binding across my card, and used that and some soft, sweet Baby Pink Seam Binding to create a nice fluffy bow.  I used a piece of Teal Baker's Twine to tie together several Pink Miniature Double Head StamensWhite Miniature Double Head Stamens and Baby Blue Miniature Double Head Stamens.  I attached those with some hot glue, and covered the "mess" with some Blue, Green and Yellow Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms from the Mixed Pastels Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms collection.  Every sweet little touch makes the card even cuter, and Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect place to find all things sweet to help take your cards and projects to the next level.
Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to join us on Sunday, January 13, for the first day of our monthly Really Reasonable Ribbon BLOG HOP.  You could be the lucky winner of this month's fabulous Ribbon Club Assortment.  I hope you'll join us.

Welcome to Winter

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to winter!  Brrr!  While winter has it's own special beauty, it can also be brutal.  So to help you survive the cold, cold season and general misery that winter provides, I've create this cute Winter Survival Kit.

This fun fold card design is a 6" x 6" card with a 5" x 5" card base tucked inside.  I've added 1" spines to both card bases so that I can fit some winter essentials inside.

 Ivory Silky Crush Ribbon glistens like freshly fallen snow and serves as a clever closure for this dimensional card. 

When the ribbon is untied, and the card is fully opened, you'll find a handy dandy winter survival kit tucked inside.

This kit comes with pocket sized tissues, medicated lip balm, and a travel sized moisturizer.  I've added in a tea bag and honey stick to warm you up once you get inside and away from the elements.

Silky Crush Ribbon is the perfect weight and size to serve as the closure for this project.  I  love that it comes in a wide range of colors, too.   

Keep thinking warm thoughts!
