RRR January Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR January Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Jeanne’s awesome 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 all about Love!  I just love all the hearts and pinks and reds. Isn’t it gorgeous??!
Today I have a fun Valentine’s Day card for you.  
 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.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Your next stop is Irit’s wonderful blog.

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

Chevron Woven Ribbon Headband Tutorial

Hi everyone. 

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.


The headbands below were made with 1/2″ or 3/4″ White Plastic Headbands and 3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You could easily substitute 3/8″ Satin Ribbon or any other opaque 3/8″ ribbon.



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.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

RRR ‘My New Toys & Ribbon’ Challenge

Hi everyone. It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog and this time the theme is ‘Anything Goes & Ribbon’. 

We wanna see what new crafty goodies you either got for the holidays or purchased for yourself!

I really didn’t get any crafty gifts for the holidays, but that’s mainly because I just get whatever I feel I ‘need’ when I need it.  lol
By far my favorite new toy in the last year has been by Silhouette Cameo.  Many of you are probably sick of hearing about it by now, but it is just soooo much fun.  I made my delicate stacked flower with my cameo.  I also used my favorite new ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon – Satin with Gold Metallic Edges in Tan.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
