Hi everyone. Today I have some cute little Valentine Owl Favors to show you which I accessorized with ribbon and trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I made these cuties with my Silhouette Cameo. I think they are just adorable. I don’t know if you remember, but I made some ‘Grinch Pills’ favors for my son’s class for Christmas. So of course I purchased Christmas M & M packs and pulled out all the green ones for that project. So, I had to come up with something to do with the leftover red ones! I really can’t be eating all those M & M’s all by myself. Not that I couldn’t do it, but yeah – well, ya know!
So, I made slightly different ones for the boys and the girls. I added Jute String for a handle to all of them, red for the boys and pink for the girls. I also added a cute little bow made from Pearl Pink Checkerboard Satin to the ones for the girls.
Here is a photo of all of them ready to go. I’m very pleased with how they came out.
You can see the embossing a little better at this angle
I used four of the ribbon styles from this month’s assortment. I added the border on the left and bottom and did a little weaving with them in the lower left corner. I made my little folded ribbon rose with the Pearl Pink Checkerboard Ribbon and finished the top off with a double bow using the Poppy Red Checkerboard Satin.
Today I have a fun Chevron Woven Ribbon Headband Tutorial for you made with ribbon and supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
After I posted my last woven ribbon headband tutorial, I was asked if I knew how to make one with a chevron pattern weave. I didn’t, but I fooled around with the weaving pattern and here is what I got.
This is the headband color combination I will demonstrate in the video below.
This is done on a 3/4″ White Plastic Headband.
Fun pattern, right?
Below I have a video tutorial to show you how to make one.
In case you missed the ribbon measurements, you will need two ribbons in contrasting colors. For a 1/2″ headband, cut two 30″ pieces of each color. For a 3/4″ headband, make the lengths about 38″ long.
I hope you’ll try this new weaving pattern. You’ll find it’s very easy to do.
