Happy New Year Party Favors

Hi friends! I hope this New Year's Eve finds you well! And to start ringing in 2020, I have some festive New Year's party favors to share with you! I've used some of the ribbons from Silver & Gold November Ribbon Club Assortment, which you can still get for a limited time as the assortment or on their own.
And here are my favors...
I used some Holiday Gold & Silver Dots ribbon and a Silver Glitter Stardust Heart Shaped Rhinestone on this cute party hat...
For this bell party favor, I simply added a super shimmery bow with Shimmer Satin Off White and another heart shaped rhinestone...
 And here, I have another party hat favor using a double bow made with Diamond Satin White and Holiday Silver Zig Zag on White Satin Ribbon
I had a lot of fun putting these festive favors together and I hope you have enjoyed seeing them. I wish you a happy, healthy and safe New Year! Until next time, happy crafting!

Winter Botanic Shaker Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  I trust you all had a joyous and healthy Christmas celebration.  Perhaps you are taking a day off from the festivities to play in your crafty space.  Christmas may be over, but New Year's Day, and winter birthdays give us a good excuse to create.  I had some scraps left over from my Stamperia Winter Botanic paper pad and thought I would use them to make this cheery shaker card.  It pairs perfectly with RRR Shimmer Satin Moss Ribbon and White Iridescent Metallic String.

Here's a helpful tip:  When you are working with scraps of a paper collection, cut squares from similarly colored papers.  Mat on cardstock, then arrange on your card.  These squares are 2" each, and fit perfectly on this 5" square card when matted on both green and ivory cardstock.

Inside, I layered more scraps of paper to create a pretty winter scene and a pocket with a tea bag and notecard insert.  This would make a great get well card, too!

Enjoy the rest of your holiday!

Today I'm sharing a sweet shabby chic card I created using lots of great products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I just LOVE that I can always count on Really Reasonable Ribbon to have the perfect trims (and SO much more) for every crafty project I tackle.  No matter what the theme, the color pattern, the type of project, or most any other variable; I'm always sure to find exactly what I need at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This shabby chic card was no exception.  I used some (super old) Simple Stories patterned papers scraps (from their Homemade Holiday line), a Melissa Frances chipboard piece, and LOTS of fabulous goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I added some rusty jingle bells tied with Red Burlap String and Natural Burlap String.  I also added half of a tea-stained doily, and ran a length of Natural Crochet Lace up my card and I incorporated it into my bow.  I tucked in plenty of Natural Burlap String bows, and added a Bronze Rusty Pear-Shaped Safety Pin from our Embellishments selection.  I also added several Wine Red Miniature Double Head StamensFossil Miniature Double Head Stamens and Milk White Miniature Double Head Stamens.  And finally, I cut and tucked in even more of the Miniature Double Head Stamens and the pieces from one cluster of a Red Berry Bead Cluster Spray.  There are truly SO many lovely touches at Really Reasonable Ribbon to give your projects all the beautiful extras they deserve.
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at this sweet and simple card.  Really Reasonable Ribbon makes it super easy to give your cards and projects those special touches.  Why not stop by the store and do some last minute Christmas shopping for the one person who wasn't on your list.....yourself.  These treats will DELIGHT you!

More Gingerbread House Cards

Hey friends and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a marvelous weekend! Linsey here today! I finished the rest of my special gingerbread house cards over the weekend, so I thought I'd go ahead and share them with you! They are so much fun to make because I can create one-of-a-kind houses--each and every one is unique and different and I love to use different ribbons and accents to decorate the houses too! So here are few that I have designed using all sorts of pretty things from RRR!
The first house showcases beautiful Emerald Checkerboard Satin Ribbon. The smaller bows have White Flat Back Pearls added to the centers of them. 
The next house features gorgeous Double-faced Satin in Hot Pink. This ribbon is so luxurious, it doesn't need anything else to accompany it. That bow says it all, don't ya think? ;) 
This third house might be my favorite, which is why I saved it for last It features 3/8" Crosshatch on Red Satin Ribbon. The centers of each bow has an 11mm Silver Glitter Stardust Heart Shaped Rhinestone and White Flat Back Pearls accent the centers of the lollipops and the red poinsettia flower. 
So, which one is your favorite? 
I hope you enjoyed this festive post today and I wish you happy holiday crafting!

Shabby Chic Ice Skates Greeting Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  I think every little girl dreams of being able to glide gracefully across the ice.  This shabby chic ice skates greeting card is as close to that experience as this old gal will ever get!  Even though I grew up in Vermont, ice skating was not a strong suit!  But that does not prevent me from enjoying these pretty ice skates adorned with gorgeous ribbons from the December Ribbon Club!

I love using ribbon to create a border on a greeting card.  Shell Print Aqua Satin over Mineral Ice Checkerboard Satin ribbon adds wonderful texture and shine to the layout of this card.  Tie a triple bow with the Aqua Shell Print Satin for a frosty finish!

Adding ribbon to the inside of a card is such a lovely surprise.  Mineral Ice Checkerboard Satin Ribbon serves as the closure for this little folio insert.

Here's a peek at the goodies tucked inside the folio.  These little card folios make great holiday gifts!

If you haven't taken a peek at the December Ribbon Club Assortment, you might want to because the Winter Carnival colors are  extra scrumptious this month!

Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Spools With Christmas Ribbons

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today, everyone!  Karen Letchworth posting today with some sweet little vintage wooden spools that I decorated with some goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have far too many of these in my possession, so I thought I'd do something creative with them.  At Really Reasonable Ribbon, there's always a perfect Lace, Seam Binding or Embellishment to help me whip up something special.
As you may know,  the Seam Binding we carry hasn't been altered (as other companies sell it).  It's the straight seam binding off the spool.  That doesn't, however, mean that you are stuck with it that way.  By purchasing your Seam Binding at RRR, you have the option of using it neat and straight or crinkly and grungy.  This way, the choice is yours.  If you want the "grungy" looking Seam Binding, all you need to do is touch the edges of your Seam Binding with a Walnut Ink of some kind.  Then, wet your fingertips and pinch, squeeze and twist it until you've got a dirty, crinkly more grungy look.  That's what I did here, as I wanted that vintage look.
One of the antique wooden spools I used (shown below) already had red sewing thread on it.  I decorated that one with a white bottle brush tree (from Crate Paper) that I adorned with some Olive Burlap String, Ivory Burlap String, one Cluster from a Red Bead Berry Spray, a Bronze Pear Shaped Safety Pin that holds a tiny tag, and is topped with a Red & White Gingham Flatback Fabric Covered Button.  Each spool decoration is sitting on a vintage milk bottle cap.
The other larger spool was bare wood.  So...I wrapped a length of Ivory Crochet Lace around the spool.  I topped that spool with a green bottle brush tree, and bundled a length of each of these:  Olive Burlap StringIvory Burlap String, and Red Burlap String to adorn this spool. This spool also has my "grungy" or "dirtied" Seam Binding, and you'll see that in my photos.  

The third spool (below) was kinda short and fat.  I ran some more narrow Ivory Crochet Lace around this spool, and I stuck a bronze paperclip upside down in the hole.  I was thinking...I'll make several of these and use them as name card holders on the Christmas table.  The top of this spool is adorned with a Red Open Rose and a Dark Green Open Rose.
There's no end to the possibilities of all the CUTE things you can make with products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I hope you'll treat yourself to some crafty Christmas presents.  Come on...you deserve some crafty goodness.  Happy shopping!
