Bargello Background Fun!

I’m always on the lookout for unique ways to use ribbon and while I was looking at a quilting catalog I came across some beautiful bargello quilt patterns. I thought that I could easily create those beautiful designs using ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I showed you a few projects using this technique on the RRR February Blog Hop and you asked for a tutorial. You will find the tutorial on the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog today.

Challenges for this card:
Sweet Stampin’ Challenges – lots of layers
Paper Pretties – Stripes – Use at least three colors (I might be stretching with this one)

Thanks for stopping by!

Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the March Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Judy’s Blog, then you are on the right track. If you just happened along, be sure to hop back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss a thing.
This month we are showcasing the RRR March Ribbon Club Assortment that is a fun light coral and aqua assortment.  I just LOVE this color combo!
Really Reasonable Ribbon just got a fun new product in from Glue Dots.  I used the XXL 2″ wide glue dots to create my ribbon flowers.  They also come in an XL 1″ size.  There are 24 pieces in the 2″ package for $5.19 and 60 pieces in the 1″ package for $4.19.  We also carry Glubers in two sizes which do basically the same thing.
It’s so easy to create terrific ribbon flowers with these products.  The smaller glue dots are also terrific for adhering larger embellishments to your projects.
I also made the two flowers above because I was having so much fun!  These will be put aside for future projects.  Each of the flowers above used about 1 yard of ribbon.  The loopy flower on my card used about 2 yards.
Your next stop is Heidi’s fabulous blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  🙂
