RRR Challenge #75 ‘Anything But a Card & Ribbon’ Theme

Hi there.  Time for another fun challenge over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog.  This time around the theme is Anything But a Card and you need to use ribbon or trim on your project.
Today I have a few headbands to share using some fun new ribbon styles at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The first two headbands are using a few of the new RRR Select Grosgrain with Silver edges and a 1/2 Inch White Plastic Headband.  Our Silver Edge Grosgrain  Ribbon is available in a 3/8″ width in 12 fun colors.  The top headband uses Light Orchid and Grape and is the Chevron Pattern.  If you’d like to give this fun project a try you can find a video tutorial HERE.

The next headband uses the RRR Select Grosgrain with Silver Edges in Pearl Pink and Hot Pink and is done in the basic woven ribbon headband pattern.  You can find a video tutorial for this HERE.

AND, I just had to whip up a quick headband using our latest stripe ribbon because you all know how much I love headbands using striped ribbon!  This headbands is also made with a 1/2 Inch Plastic Headband and our new Seaside Stripe Grosgrain.  Isn’t this a fun pattern?  This is also done using the basic woven headband pattern and just the one ribbon.  LOVE. IT.!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope your join in our RRR ‘Anything But a Card’ Challenge.

June Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR June Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.
 
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is just gorgeous!!  I just love all the bright summery colors!!!

 
 
I have a couple of projects for you today. 

First I made a fun card the size of a #10 legal size envelope.  It’s fun to do different card dimensions once in a while.
 

 
I used all my ribbons on this card with little loops along the side of my sentiment.  The colors coordinated well with my design paper and it makes a fun and colorful birthday card.

 

I also couldn’t resist making another headband this month. 
 
This time around I used the Yellow Star Grosgrain and the Blue Topaz Swiss Dots and made a chevron woven ribbon headband.  If you are looking for the tutorial, you can find it HERE.
 
 
I just love a blue and yellow combo.  I added a pretty little ribbon flower using the two solid blues from the June Ribbon Club assortment and I added some 7/8″ White Double-Faced Satin for the bottom flower layer.  The leaves are made with the Green Flash Double-Faced Satin from the June assortment.  The flower is mounted on a ribbon lined alligator clip, so you can move it to a different location on the headband or remove it completely.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Your next stop is Judy’s fun blog.
 

I would love for you to leave a comment before you go.

RRR Challenge #73 ‘Masculine with Ribbon or Trim’ Theme

 
Hi there.  Time for another fun challenge over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog.  This time around the theme is Masculine and you need to use ribbon or trim on your project.
 
This is always a hard theme for me (and for most people) ’cause we like to glam it up!!  You just have to control yourself when doing a card for a man.  lol
 
 
I used 1-1/2″ Black Jute Ribbon and Jute String Natural on my card.  I think that keeps it sufficiently ‘manly’ for an adult male.  What do you think?
 
I hope you head over and join in our challenge!! 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
