First Birthday Banner, Sign & Treat Bags

 
Hello everyone, and happy Wednesday to all! Today I have a few things to share that I made for my Granddaughters 1st birthday using Really Reasonable Ribbon & embellishments. I LOVE how everything turned out, we had a lot of fun doing this sweet party for our dear Granddaughter Chloey. My daughter helped with with the treats and the wrappers for the candy bars. Lots of fun!

In the 1st photo we made a sign for the treat table, I added a big bow using Really Reasonable Ribbons 7/8" Circus Grosgrain dots. in Geranium pink.
For the banner I cut out all the Minnie mouse heads, and added the letters that I cut using the cricut. I then made a ton of bows and added buttons to the centers. These were made also using the 7/8" Grosgrain Circus dots.

Treat bags- I made the bows with the black circus dots, and then added the super sweet flatbacked candy resin dots for the centers of all the bows on these sweet candy bags. I was able to print off these celebrate Mickey and Minnie heads for my treat bags. The dies I used are from Cheery Lynn Designs. 

I hope you enjoyed my post for today! I surely enjoyed creating all these fun projects for the sweet birthday party.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,
Cheryl

Butterfly Greeting Card Set

Hey Peeps. Well I'm going CAS today. I know..it surprised me to. When I got my supplies out to create cards all the fun little images and die cuts just fell into place and I thought why not? Everything doesn't need to have flowers and chippies and embellies. Sometimes you just need a quick card that's good for any occasion that can be mailed in a regular sized envelope right?

I had a fun time mixing some vintagy patterns of paper with some that were just a bit edgy and on trend. Layers of die cuts, RRR trims, and simple pearly accents create loads of detail.




Okay that's all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Friendship Mini Album

Hello, all  my ribbon loving friends!  Karen Letchworth posting today and sharing a Paper Bag Album that I created to share with you all. I used three brown paper lunch bags that I covered in patterned papers, reinforced with cream card stock to bind, and then machine stitched to secure.  Then, I got busy decorating it with several of my favorite products from Really Reasonable Ribbon. On the cover, you will see Solid Ric Rac, as well as a snippet of Burlap Center Stitch GreenTurquoise Plaid Ribbon, and Sunflower Swiss Dots Grosgrain.
On the second page (below), you will see a snippet of Turquoise Plaid Ribbon.  Each page has a large open space for photos, journalling, etc.  Paper Bag Albums are a great way to display photos and create memories.  This album was created using papers and chipboard, etc. from an older sewing-themed line. Mini albums are also a great way to use up leftover patterned papers and embellishments. 😉
Page Three doesn't have any trim.  However, it has a pocket that holds a photo/journal tag that is trimmed with Turquoise Plaid RibbonSunflower Swiss Dots Grosgrain, and Celery Green Plaid Ribbon.  I just love seeing those gorgeous ribbons peeking out the other side.
I also took a close-up photo of Page Three (below) so that you can get a better view of all the fabulous ribbons and trims peeking through from the tag tucked in the pocket next to this page, as well as some Ivory Burlap String, some Mulberry Paper Leaves and trims from the next page.
Page Four has a length of Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon that I ran down the middle of the page and looped at the top singed with a length of Solid Red Baker's Twine and topped with a Two-Toned Green Sweetheart Blossom.
Page Five has small tag that is tied with 3/8" Plaid Moss Green Ribbon and has some Ivory Burlap String tucked underneath it.  I'm only sharing the close-up photo of this page because there's no other trim on this page.  The rest of the page is open space for another photo or journalling.
Page Six (below) is covered with patterned papers and decorated with some Mulberry Paper LeavesIvory Burlap String, paper flowers, (and I used the darker red ones found in the Red and White Mixed Sweetheart Blossoms).
I took a closer photo of all the pretty Red and White Mixed Sweetheart BlossomsMulberry Paper LeavesIvory Burlap String and Mulberry Flowers I used on this page.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has SO many great ribbons, trims and goodies that you will always be able to find the perfect colors for ANY project you're working on,  I encourage you to check it out for yourself at  Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Page Seven has no trims, but again has a pocket that contains a tag tied with 3/8" Plaid Moss Green Ribbon.  Mini albums are SO much fun because of all the layers of pages, ribbons and trims that are packed into one small creation,
Making paper bag albums is easy and fun, and Really Reasonable Ribbon can help you find all the perfect ribbons, trims, twines, flowers and embellishments for EVERY project.  Be sure to check out the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop, and also come play along in the current challenge on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

Have a crafty week!

Dear Father Card

Hello ribbon lovers!  
I am sharing a fun and easy Father's Day card that you can make in minutes using the beautiful baker's twine and lace by Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I created this card using a vintage Father's image.  Next I added the gorgeous Debra Natural Lace to the bottom of the matted image.   I then wrapped the Brown Sugar Baker's Twine  around the card and tied a bow.
I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy Father's card.
