Happy Birthday Card

Hi friends.  Today I have a fun birthday card created in seasonal colors featuring Copper Glitz Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This pretty Glitz Ribbon comes in 11 great colors.  It’s a lovely lightweight shimmery ribbon and it is wonderful for bow making.

I also played around with some machine and hand stitching on this card.  I really like the look.
My bow is a simple double loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0.

‘Orange’ You Glad it’s Autumn Themed Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.


This time we have an ‘Orange’ You Glad it’s Autumn Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.
I created a kanzashi flower using 1-1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon in tangerine and black and 1-1/2″ Gingham Ribbon in orange from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This will be worn as a Halloween pin, but it could also easily be a hair clip.

For a video tutorial on how to create the single layer kanzashi petals, please click HERE.

Stay tuned for a video tutorial for the double-layer kanzashi petals soon!
