Special Delivery from the North Pole Stuffed Pocket by Cherry Nelson


Hello RRR fans!  Cherry here today on the blog.  It is after Thanksgiving, so game on with the Christmas festivities!  I created a whimsical overstuffed holiday pocket filled to the brim with gift tags and fun little embellishments.   Many of these would be adorable on packages, in your own personal scrapbook, or a traveler's notebook.   I used twine from RRR along with the striped grosgrain on my pocket. I always love pinks, reds, and aquas for a retro Christmas.  Make sure to scroll down for a full RRR list my friends!

Hope you enjoy and stay safe and creative my friends!

XOXO, Cherry

Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving Photo Folio by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Happy Thanksgiving!  I'm about to trade in my scissors for my apron and rolling pin because it's time to bake pies.  But I thought I'd pop in quickly and share this adorable Thanksgiving Photo Folio with you first.  

Burlap string bows create the perfect little nest for this cute felt pumpkin.  Clustered together with die cut leaves, wheat stalks, and pretty flowers from the RRR shop it ties all the colors in this folio together. You can almost hear the leaves crunching under the feet of the cute kids in the picture.   I selected Olive Green, Antique Gold, Yellow and Red Burlap string for the bows. Tie all four lengths of string into a big loopy bow with a little help from your Bow-it-All Tool.  The flowers are Mixed Earth Tone Chrysanthemums and Mixed Earth Tone Rose Buds.  

The inside of the folio has flap pages, pockets and magnetic mini folios.

I really cherish the old family photos from Thanksgivings past.  The images bring back lots of happy memories.

I wish you all a blessed, happy and delicious Thanksgiving Day!

Gingerbread Boy Snow Globe Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends.  Today I have another fun shaker card designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the gorgeous ribbons, flowers and embellishments that they carry in the RRR Shop.  I love making these snow globe shakers, so much fun!
On my card I started with 3 layers using some of my old Christmas design paper, and then added sewing. I then added some white dots using a white gel pen. Next I had to add the darling snowflakes to all the corners. Really Reasonable Ribbon carries these cute snow flakes, and I LOVE using them. I then added my snow globe that I made using My Makers Movement dies and stamps. My gingerbread boy was colored with Copics and I added some sStickles to him as well. My card came together pretty fast, and lastly I added the Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon, and the Peppermint Stick Satin ribbon for my bows. I then hot glued the flowers on.

  • warm wishes stamp set
  • snowglobe stamp set
  • Jingle Bell sprinkles

Merry Christmas Y'all

Welcome back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, everyone, and thanks again for visiting us today.  I hope you're all doing well, staying happy and healthy; and that you've had lots of time lately to create pretty things.  I always enjoy stopping by your blogs to gain inspiration, and I hope you enjoy visiting me as well.  It's always a treat when I find extra time to spend in my craft room creating things; and there are SO many great products at Really Reasonable Ribbon including the oodles and oodles of ribbons, laces, twines and trims they carry as well as all sorts of other goodies.  The projects I'm sharing with you today incorporate some of my favorites from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I started with a red cardstock and then cut a black cardstock frame using a die-cut scalloped frame.  I added a patterned paper to the center of that, and incorporated several other patterned paper scraps/snippets that I machine stitched onto my base.  I used of lots of fabulous Scor-Tape to adhere all these pretty layers together.
I used a smaller frame from the same die-cut set; and cut my sentiment piece from vellum (outer) and cream cardstock (center).  I stamped my sentiment using a set  called Merry Christmas Y'all.  Next, I used a die to cut my snowflake and I covered it in ultrafine glitter to give it some sparkle.
I used an Echo Park sticker for the truck and a couple other small accents.  The green sprigs are from Crate Paper, and pretty much everything else is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This includes a length of Cherry Baker's Twine, Solid Black Baker's Twine, a Deep Ivory Open Rose, and some Black Miniature Double Head Stamens, Wine Red Double Head Stamens and Milk White Double Head Stamens.  There's also a Tim Holtz rusty paper clip and a few red prills on my card.
The tag I made was cut using the For You Sweet Cut Tag from Paper Sweeties.  I added some patterned paper and stickers (also Echo Park) to my tag.  I ran a width of Black and White Plaid Gingham Ribbon across the tag; and made a bow using the same Gingham Ribbon, some Cream Seam BindingBlack Seam Binding and Red Pom Pom trim.  There's never a shortage of pretty ribbons and trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You'll also find AdhesivesMulberry FlowersEmbellishments and SO much more.   Thanks SO much for stopping by, and please visit  us again soon.

A Joyous Christmas Greeting Card

 Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a greeting card I created with my favorite trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I'm loving the more traditional color palate of this care. Red and green are classic!

These papers have been in my stash for a bit just waiting for the right project to come along.
This focal point image is a printable I created to help me utilize papers that don't come from a "collection" and don't have journal cards or ephemera to coordinate.

I've created a large flower arrangement to add using a bow made with the gorgeous Olive Green Wrinkle Ribbon from May Arts to fill in the corner.

A second bow for balance. Also you can never have enough bows Am I right?

Please enjoy this video tutorial...

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Just Believe upcycle candle top ornament

Hi there my fellow RRR peeps!  Cherry visiting today to share a mason jar lid ornament.  I always have to make a few of these each year.  Great way to recycle those candle lids. This one was covered inside with aqua blue glitter. 

I nestle a bunch of fun beads, homemade flowers, and tags inside.

I backed it with pattern papers and chipboard.

I hope you enjoyed!  Stay healthy, sane, and crafty!
XOXO, Cherry

Sparkling Holiday Cards with Metallic String

Stamperia Pink Christmas Card by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01
Hello, Friends!  Christmas is peeking around the corner.  It's time to break out all our sparkly, shimmering card making supplies.  I love this time of year! You will almost never find a card of mine that does not have ribbon on it.  It adds texture, pattern, color and design to even the humblest creation.  But have you thought about embellishing your Christmas cards with metallic string?

Metallic String Bows Stamperia Pink Christmas by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

The delicate design of chipboard shaker on  this shabby chic card seemed to call for a more delicate bow cluster.  What could possibly look better than this loopy bow tied with Iridescent Metallic String and Gold Metallic String?  Here's how I made the bow:
  • First, cut (2) 18" lengths of metallic string.
  • Then set the posts on your Zutter Bow-it-All tool t at a distance of 3".  
  • Make sure both ends of the metallic string are even.  Then simply loop both strands around and around the posts and tie a "C" knot.  (If you don't know  how to use the Zutter Bow-it-All tool or if you are struggling with tying the "C" knot, watch Bonnie's tutorial on YouTube.)

Here's a peek at the inside of this box style card.  I've used some of the November Ribbon Club Assortment to line the pocket face.  The gold snowflakes on this grosgrain ribbon echo the gold metallic string in the bow on the front of the card.

 I used the same ribbon and more metallic string to top the little bookmark/tag that I tucked inside the pocket. 

Have you started making your Christmas cards and projects yet?  It's never too early to get a head start.  Bonnie has some great Christmas Ribbons and Flowers in the shop.  There are some new options to choose from that will look great on your holiday creations!  

Thanks for stopping by!
