You just can’t go wrong with Seam Binding
! Just spritz with a little water, scrunch it up and leave it in a big ball to dry. Then you have to most amazing crinkly, wrinkly shabby looking ribbon. I think it makes a great bow and it’s so forgiving to work with too. Really Reasonable Ribbon
has over 30 colors in stock.
I created this card using sketch 65 over at Papertake Weekly.
This card is for my niece Dani’s birthday. I hope she likes it. 🙂

We’ve got a fun new challenge today with a Monochromatic Green Theme at Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings!
I didn’t have much time this week, so it’s a quick and easy card this time around.
I stamped my sentiment and layered it on some green cardstock pieces, added a few short strips of ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
, some die-cut flourishes and a quick little gathered rose.
To make the rose I took a piece of 1″ wide Scor-Tape
and made a little circle. I took my green shimmer Satin and started on the outer edge and gathered it as I went and stuck it down in a spiral motion until I reached the middle. I poked a little hole and finished off the center with a flower shaped brad. Easy-peasy. 🙂

Today I have a quick card for you featuring Baker’s Twine
from Really Reasonable Ribbon
. This is such a fun trim to use and it’s so versatile. I was looking around my craft room at all the tools I have from ‘back in the day’, and there was my Fiskars crimper. It’s been years
since I used this tool.
So, what to do with it…………………
Eureka!! I can crimp a sheet of paper and use the valleys to hold some baker’s twine wrapped around the cardstock. Now, I could have done this without crimping the paper, but it made it so easy to keep the baker’s twine evenly spaced, plus, I used my crimper! How great is that??!
Take a look around your craft room today and find one of those old tools you never use and figure out a new use for it! We’d love to see what you create – don’t forget to add some ribbon!! Stop by the RRR Facebook page and show us your project and tell us what ‘forgotten’ tool you used.
