Shaking Things Up with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lover's !  It's Kathy here today with some fun ways to use ribbon.

Of course, we all love to add texture, dimension and pattern to our cards.  Beautiful bows are the easiest way I know of to do this.   This Sherbet Checkerboard Satin Ribbon ties beautiful bows!  Top it with some Silver Metallic String and you've added another layer of texture and shine.

But ribbon also makes a beautiful border added to the top or side of a card.  This 5/8" Vintage Floral Print Satin Ribbon looks great layered down the side of the card.  Using 1/2" Scor-Tape makes this really quick and easy to do.

Ribbon looks great inside a card, too!  I love this sweet little border strip and bow made with 3/8" Pink and Purple Vertical Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon. It makes this card feel like a party is going on!

Add a ribbon border to this little gift tag, top it with a Sherbet Checkerboard Satin Bow, and you're really rocking the ribbon!  A scrap of that Vintage Flora Print ribbon looks great tied onto a honey stick, too!

Ribbon also makes a great closure for this gift card holder.  I attached 3/8" Shocking Pink Quatrefoil Print Satin to the back of the gift card holder with 1/4" Scor-Tape.  After the ribbon is attached, use more Scor-Tape to adhere it to the card base.  Tie a bow, and you've got a mighty cute gift card holder!

Here's a peek at the inside.

I hope I've shared some fresh ideas for ways to use ribbon in your card making adventures.  You can find all the ribbons used here in the RRR June Ribbon Club Assortment.

Thanks for stopping by!
