Electric Blue Double Faced Satin Ribbon above and below it. This was topped with festive Random Patriotic Stars on White Grosgrain Ribbon. To give it a little more of a vintage vibe, I lightly tapped the ribbon with Tea Dye Distress Ink before layering it on with 1/4" Scor-Tape. I really love the way that Scor-Tape holds ribbon and keeps the ends from fraying!
3/8" American Flag Print Satin Ribbon. I love the way this draws the eye to the stitching detail on this denim-backed banner flag. The red burlap panel adds wonderful texture and plays along with the vintage Americana vibe of the card.
5/8" Red Plaid Ribbon and more of that glorious American Flag Print Satin. My vintage button is threaded with ivory burlap string. I don't know how I ever managed to tie a bow without the help of my trusty Zutter Bow-it-All Tool! (Enabler alert: Bonnie has the 2.0 version on SALE in the shop...and is now taking Pre-orders for the all new 3.0 version. And, it's almost Mother's Day. Just sayin'!)
The tag is embellished with a sticker from the collection and then you know I had to get into my embellishment box and search for something fun to add. The little wooden washboard was inked with Vintage Photo DI and then draped with a scrap of Red Plaid Ribbon. It's so cute that it made me clap my hands for joy! Then I added a little apple button, a vintage clip and more ribbon and burlap string to the top of the tag to finish it off. I think this card could be used for a kitchen shower or a birthday present and it would make a fantastic housewarming gift!
The versatility of these ribbons is so exciting: nautical themes, sports themes, kitschy kitchen, vintage and of course, patriotic projects as well. What would YOU make? I'd love to hear in the comment section below!
