Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the 
This time we have a Silver & Gold Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.  This theme teams up perfectly with our fabby November Ribbon Club Assortment.

I’m on a bit of a tag kick, so I made another simple set.  I trimmed them all with pretty double-loop bows using two of the 3/8″ satin styles from the RRR November Ribbon Club Assortment.  The bows were made on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  The tag ties are made of Silver and Gold Metallic String from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

New ‘Tag, You’re It!’ Challenge Theme this week at Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Tag, You’re It! themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

I decided to go simple for this pretty set of four Christmas Tags.  Can you call a project with intricate die cuts clean and simple?  Well it is!  I love the intricate dies from Cheery Lynn Designs because they cut so easily and best of all, they pop right out when you are done!  It was a pleasure cutting these dies out.  
I’m entering my tag set in the following challenges:
Below is a view of one tag front and back.  The ties are made with Silver Metallic String and the double loop bows are made with Random Stars Light Silver Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I created the bows on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can go from itty bitty 1/2″ little bows all the way up to 10 inches wide on this fabulous tool.

Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR November Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Amber’s 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 a gorgeous mix of silver and gold.  Perfect for Christmas, New Year’s projects, weddings and more! 

This great assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try out new ribbon styles.  JOIN TODAY as a treat for yourself!  Looking for a gift for a crafty friend?  RRR offers Ribbon Club Gift Subscriptions in 3, 6 and 12-month options. 

My card today uses two of the styles from the November Ribbon Club assortment.  I love the old gold shimmer satin which I used for the bow and I also wrapped a piece across the center panel of the card under the sentiment and topped it with the silver and gold diagonal stripe satin ribbon.  My double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.

I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
I couldn’t help myself this month and I created two woven ribbon headbands.  
I was pleasantly surprised by the fun design the diagonal stripe satin made on the first headband that I made using a 1/2″ white plastic headband base.  This is the basic woven ribbon headband technique.  By moving the starting position of the ribbons, you can create lots of different patterns such as the diagonal stripe look below.
For a video tutorial on how this headband was made, please click HERE.
I knew I would love the two shimmer satin ribbons together to create this Easy Woven Ribbon Headband.  I started with a 3/4″ white plastic headband as the base.  This is the easiest of the woven ribbon headbands to create, so if you are just starting out, this is a great one for you.
