Happy Birthday Dani !!

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.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Monochromatic Green Challenge Theme at Really Reasonable Ribbon

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.   ๐Ÿ™‚

Colorful Baker’s Twine Card Background

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??!

(card inside)
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.
