Pockets and Pinwheels with Patriotic Ribbon


Really Reasonable Ribbon Patriotic Plaid Carta Bella God Bless America Kathy Clement

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Believe it or not, Summer is right around the corner!  Here in the US, that means it is time to break out our patriotic ribbons and get ready for Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Independence Day holidays.  So I've whipped up a fun little "inside out" pocket on the front card. Then I dressed it up with a bunch of patriotic ribbons from the RRR shop. I don't know about you, but I love working with good old red, white and blue!

The star of the show is my favorite Patriotic Plaid Ribbon.  I've used it to make bows, fishtail banners and as a border on the box pocket.

If you haven't checked out the Patriotic Ribbon in the shop lately, let me entice you with a few of them here.  I wrapped the pinwheel straw with beautiful Flag Grosgrain Ribbon.  This handsome ribbon also works beautifully as a border on a card or album cover.  

Really Reasonable Ribbon Patriotic Ribbon Tag

Dress up the top of a little tag with ribbon streamers made from Patriotic Plaid, 3/8" Checkerboard Poppy Satin, and Tiny Stars Grograin ribbons.  (The blue is out of stock, but you could use the red, then use Blue Diamond Satin Ribbon in place of the Poppy Red.)

Grosgrain Ribbon makes a really cute border on the bottom of the tag, too.  I cut a fishtail end on one side to balance out the rosette on the right.

Here's a peek inside the card.  I added a little flap and pocket feature.

There is room beneath the flap to add a photo with a little journaling on the left.  And you could tuck a little ice cream gift card inside the folded journal card just for fun!

I hope I've shared some tips and tricks that you can use when you get ready to create your red, white and blue projects.  Don't forget to check out the May Ribbon Club Nautical Americana ribbons, too!  They are perfect for summer holiday and vacation projects. 

Thanks for stopping by!
