Spooktacular Ribbon Topped Treat Tags

Hello, Friends!  Halloween is coming!  And these spooktacular ribbon topped treat tags are perfect for all the grown up ghouls and ghosts on your list!

I've topped each tag with a wonderful cluster of Halloween Ribbons from the September Ribbon Club.

I've also wrapped ribbon around the pocket base on each tag.  Doing this really gives the tag a finished, professional feel.

The pocket holds treats that any grown up trick or treater would enjoy.  I've wrapped individual packs of cookies with designer paper, added ribbon and a rosette to a vintage silver spoon, tucked in a tea bag, candy corn, chocolate treat and honey stick to complete the gift ensemble. 

The ribbon cluster takes these tags from fabulous to frightfully fabulous!  And it is so easy to do!  Just thread lengths of the September Ribbon Club ribbons through the top of the tag.  Tie them off with a length of the Grape Diamond Ribbon Satin to secure.  Top with a boo-tiful bow for the perfect finishing touch.

I upcycled some clothing tags by painting them with black chalk paint.  The jute string on the tag is also tied into the ribbon cluster.  Then I added a mini Halloween card on the front of the tag.

This is where you can add your ghostly greetings.

Here's a look at the second tag:

I'm telling you, friends...ribbon is magic!  I hope I've shared some tips and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween Gift Carton

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all! Today I have a sweet little Halloween Gift Carton I decorated with Really Reasonable Ribbon and some sweet little dies. This project is super easy and comes together quickly.

I love making different little gifts, and this one sure is sweet! I chose the Gift Carton from Makers Movement and then decorated with Really Reasonable Ribbon from the September Ribbon Club Assortment. I added the striped grosgrain ribbon along the bottom of the gift carton, then the cute little candy print in orange to embellish the top of the carton.

The Halloween dies are CottageCutz and are super cute addition to this gift carton. Perfect little treat to give at Halloween to your friends or family with some yummy treats inside.

I tied the top closed with some black burlap string and then tied on the bow.  The bat is hot glued on, and the little Halloween tag is also tied on. I think I need to make 12 of these for my club as they would be super cute to give to the ladies in October.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies used:
September Ribbon club
black burlap string
scotch advance tape refill
foam squares
foam tabs

Hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by.

Trust In The Lord

Hello, and welcome by again.  Thanks for stopping by today as I share a card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I will never grow tired of working with all the fabulous products found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Of course, they have ribbons and trims....but they also have SO much more.  This card will give you an idea of what I'm talking about.  I used some fun Echo Park patterned papers from an awesome line called I Love Family that I picked up at Tuesday Morning (great bargains).  As I often like to do, I created my card using primarily paper scraps.  I used several leftover strips of these patterned papers, I inked the edges, and attached them using pieces of a fabulous Adhesive called Scor-Tape.  I stamped the sentiment using Words of Encouragement Stamp Set from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.  I absolutely LOVE what the sweet Really Reasonable Ribbon products do for all my cards and projects.

I bundled some Natural Burlap StringPeach Burlap String and Olive Burlap String; and I also added some Turquoise Double Head StamensYellow Double Head StamensRed Miniature Double Head Stamens.  I topped all that with a 30mm White Mulberry Leaf, a couple Autumn Gold Open Roses, and a couple Two-Tone Light Turquoise Open Roses.  There are SO MANY gorgeous products to choose from at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
At the top right of my card (up near the stamped sentiment), I added a small snippet of Brown Center-Stitch Canvas Ribbon and a miniature rusty paperclip.  There are SO many fabulous trims, AdhesivesEmbellishmentsFlowers, and much more at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I hope you've been inspired, and that you'll take time to do some shopping today to treat yourself.  You won't be disappointed!

Thankful For You Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a very Fall inspired greeting card created with my fav trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 Isn't that Ivory/Brown/Copper Plaid just perfectly warm and rich? I love it paired with the Antique Gold Burlap String.
That bow creates the anchor for this coordinating flower arrangement. I've also tucked in some leaves die cut from glitter paper to add a little sparkle.

Fall inspired charms, vintage buttons, and a metal clip are the perfect finishing touch to this seasonal card.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Pretty Kanzashi Hair Clip

Hello there ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here again today and I'm sharing another fun Kanzashi creation using ribbon and accessories from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This would be great as a hair accessory for an adult by adding a French Clip or other clip of your choice.  It would also make a nice pin for a jacket or bag by adding a Pin Back.

I added a pretty gingham Covered Button from Really Reasonable Ribbon to the center of the flower to finish it off.

This Kanzashi Creation was made with all 1-1/2" Solid Grosgrain Ribbons and 1-1/2" Gingham Ribbon using the petal variations in the videos below.  While it looks very large in the photo, it only measures a little more than 3" at the widest point.  It's the perfect size for an understated hair clip.

So for the card I chose some scrap pieces I had, and then layered and added sewing to each one. Next I chose the beautiful delicate stitched ribbon in the color Peony. The beautiful flowers are the Chelsea Roses Mixed Pastels. Then the rose buds in pink, and a yellow sweetheart blossom. I also used the green leaves in 30mm.

Lastly I embellished with the sweet Heart embellishments and some stickles glitter glue in pink. The image was one I printed out from online, so sweet.

Beautiful Fall Mixed Media Home Decor

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!   Here we are at the very end of August and I can feel fall peeping around the corner.  After a extra hot and sultry southern summer, I am more than ready to welcome it!

I have so enjoyed working with the ribbons in the August Ribbon Club Assortment.   I had one last fling with them while making this 9" x 11" wall hanging.  The bows on this vintage hanger are tied with Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin and 3/8" Brown/Cream Plaid.  Topped with some vintage buttons from my stash, they provide just the right finishing touch, and a perfect color match for this Prima Autumn Sunset paper collection.

Soon we'll be trading in out flip flops for wooly socks and our petunias for pumpkins.  I love the change of seasons, and since fall is my favorite, I'm especially looking forward to this one.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Halloween Treat Bag with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have a super fun Halloween Treat Bag I decorated using Really Reasonable Ribbon's beautiful ribbons and supplies. I forgot how much I love designing cards and such for Halloween, it's so much fun! Also Lily Kitty just had to get in the photos, she loves being with me when crafting and I guess taking photos too....heheeheh
Hope you enjoy!

So for my treat bag I used a bag I had from Pebbles, and added some design paper in orange, then a tag, Tilda, and then some other fun tags and dies. Of course I had to use some of the beautiful ribbons from thie September Ribbon Club Assortment, aren't they sweet?! Love the web ribbon, and the ghost and kitties on the orange one. I did add the stripe one to the bottom of the bag as a border.

Tilda is one of many stamps I have of her, and this one is absolutely darling! She was colored using Copic markers, then I fussy cut her out so she could sit on the border of pumpkins. That pumpkin border was some random stuff I had from the warehouse sale from American Crafts. The Potion bottle is CottageCutz dies, and fits perfectly on my treat bag. The little bat was a potion bottle top and I cut it down to use just the bat. Super fun treat bag to make! Of course Lilybean is the sweetest, she is just hanging out to photo bomb my photo....heheeh - Love her!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Really Reasonable Ribbon Halloween Assortment
Halloween Critters
Spider Webs on Black
Delicate Stitched Ribbon
Striped Grosgrain Black
Foam Squares

other supplies:
Pebbles gift bag

Cherish Family

What a treat to have you stop by today!  It's Karen sharing today, and I'm so glad you're here because today I'm sharing a warm and welcoming Autumn card and two matching mini albums that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I apologize that this will be a very long post because I took a photo of every page in the mini albums.  Sorry!

For my card, I started with some sweet patterned papers, stickers and chipboard from an Echo Park line called I Love Family.  I used white Bazzill Basics for my card base, and then I layered a couple of the patterned papers.  I ran a length of the 1/2" Burgundy Wrinkle Ribbon just off the center left on my card.  I used the 1/2" Burgundy Wrinkle Ribbon1/2" Olive Wrinkle Ribbon and a piece of Cream Seam Binding to make my bow.
I also added some White Double Head  Mini Stamens, Red Double Head Mini Stamens, Blue Double Head Mini StamensMatcha Green Double Head Mini Stamens, and I topped that with a 15 mm Green Mulberry Leaf20mm Brown Mulberry Leaf, an Orange Open End Rose, a Burgundy Open End Rose and a Light Mocha Open End Rose.  I just LOVE how all the sweet Mulberry Flowers elevate our cards and projects, and give them such amazing texture and life.

Next, I made two coordinating mini albums from the same Echo Park line.  I used a large glassine bag for each mini album.  You can incorporate multiple glassine bags for this project, but today's minis use just one bag each.  I decorated the pages with the patterned papers, stickers and chipboard as well as some other ephemera (journalling spots, tickets, etc.) and some photo spots so that someone can simply pop a few family photos in there...and you have a cute little family memory album.

The pockets provided by the glassine bag gave me one more place to tuck in a photo/journal mat into each album.  I didn't embellish them much.   and secured lengths of Olive Wrinkle Ribbon to the front and back so that I have a tie enclosure for the album for when it's being stored.  The page below shows the left side of the open album.  There's a bit of Ivory Burlap String at the bottom of this page, and it's topped with a sticker.
Page 2, or the right-hand side of the open mini album, gives you a peek at the pocket (to the right) which contains an additional photo/journal mat.  There's lots of extra space for attaching photos, journalling spots and memories.  These make such great little gifts during the holidays, or any time.

On my second glassine bag mini album (pictured below), I added a few Sweethearts Blossoms to the front cover along with a 30mm Green Mulberry Leaf.  And similar to the first album, this one is tied shut with lengths of the pretty 1/2" Ivory Wrinkled Ribbon on each side.

How fun are these little albums?  If you need help finding glassine bags, please let me know.  You can use a simple brown paper lunch bag, or any kind of bag.  I just like the soft, pretty feel of these super sweet, thin little bags.  A few miniature rusty paper clips, woodgrain washi tape, some chipboard, a few journalling spots here and!
This is a peek at the left-hand side of the open album.  There aren't any additional Really Reasonable Ribbon products inside this mini album because I wanted to keep them fairly flat.  Lots of paper, lots of places for tucking in precious memories.
The next photo (below) is the right-hand side of the open album, a.k.a. Page 3.  This is also very simple, and gives a peek at the journalling card that goes in the pocket.  It's sticking out just enough for you to get a peek at it.
And finally...the last photo I'm sharing is the back cover of the album.  You can always see that pretty 1/2" Ivory Wrinkled Ribbon showing.  It's GORGEOUS, just like all of the ribbons and trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Thanks again for stopping by today.  I hope you'll remember to join us on the 13th of this, and every month, for our fun BLOG HOP.  We always love to have you join the fun for your chance to win the Ribbon Club Assortment for the month...not to mention a lot of wonderful inspiration as well.  There's always something happening at Really Reasonable Ribbon, so be sure to stop by often.

Trick or Treat Halloween Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share some not so spooky inspiration with you.  Yes I know it's early....but what can I say I love Halloween!
I super love this Bold Check Ribbon on holiday cards. Seems to work for Christmas projects  too lol!
I'm also using the Ivory Burlap String to create a layered look for this bow.
This Twilight collection from Authentique is my new favorite. What's not to like..there's stripes and dots and spooky images.
I created these flowers to get a perfect match for this festive holiday card. The stamens are from RRR and they are the perfect finishing touch.
Last but not least is a glittery die cut frame, metal charms, and a vintage button.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
