A Red, White and Blue Day with Karen Taylor Guest Designer

Good morning everyone I am Karen Taylor and
I am so excited to be here as a guest designer for Really Reasonable Ribbon !
I am excited to share with you Really Reasonable Ribbons June Ribbon Club Assortment.
With this being Memorial Day weekend and just 6 short weeks until the 4th of July it is the perfect time to grab the red, white and blue begin creating!
First I want to share an altered canvas that would be perfect to decorate any room with a little Americana flair.
I used ribbon around the edge and on the front to decorate this canvas.

You can see here in the close up how I layer this fantastic ribbon!

Next I altered a tin can….yes that is right, a can that would have gone in the garbage.
I am going to fill my little altered can with red, white and blue flowers for the table on the fourth….what will you do with yours?

For all of my projects today I used Best Creations Inc. I {heart} America paper line.

It went fantastic with the wonderful June Ribbon Assortment!
I have had such a great time using these beautiful and high quality ribbons! A Huge thank you to Really Reasonable Ribbon for having me guest design. It has been a real pleasure.
