Having Fun With Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello crafty peeps, and welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today as I (Karen) share a some fun projects with you.  There are SO many fabulous ribbons, trims, twines and goodies at Really Reasonable Ribbon that you're always sure to find just the right touches for every project.  Today I'm sharing five quick projects that each use some of my favorite trims.
While I was on vacation recently, I purchased a few new things at a fun scrapbook store including some die-cuts from My Favorite Things for making Chapstick/lip balm holders like the one above.  I love the Cherry Baker's Twine at the top of the holder.  Baker's Twine is a wonderful touch for so many projects.  And, at just $1 for 10 yards, you're going to want to pick up all 37 gorgeous colors carried at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
My second project is the HELLO card shown above.  It uses a kraft paper base, some woodgrain patterned paper, die-cut foliage and a stamped sentiment.  The finishing touch to this quick but sweet little card is some Natural Burlap String that's strung through a little brown button and tied into a bow.
None of the projects/cards I'm sharing today are terribly complicated, and none of them have a whole lot of Really Reasonable Ribbon product on them.  I guess my point was just to show everyone how a small accent, such as the Natural Burlap String or some Baker's Twine can add texture and personality to your art work.  By the way, Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries several fabulous Adhesives to help you securely attached your papers, ribbons, etc. onto your projects.
It's pretty much the same concept with this card (above) where I really wanted the focus to remain on the stamped sentiment and the pretty stamped leaves.  The Natural Burlap String used on this card really pulls in the color from the kraft base.  It's a simple addition, but again adds just a lovely completed touch.
The last card I'm sharing today again uses a kraft cardstock base and then a layer of white cardstock that's pressure embossed using an embossing folder.  There are a few gem stickers, but just to give the card that extra touch of love, a piece of Green Micro Gingham Ribbon was attached.  There really is a perfect trim for every project at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and we hope you will stop by often.  You'll always find loads of inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and there's never a shortage of beautiful ribbons, trims, twines, Embellishments, Adhesives, Mulberry Flowers, and more waiting for you in the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.  Please visit again soon.
