Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR September Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Carolyn’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 celebrates Halloween!

I have a couple of projects for you this month.  

I love Halloween colors and prints.  My card uses little snippets of just about all the ribbons in the September Ribbon Club assortment.  This is a great technique for ribbon scraps and also keeps the card nice and flat for mailing.

My images are from Floozieville on Etsy.  Such fun digi images and the price is sooo low. 
My beautiful double-layer bow was made with my Bow-it-All Tool.
And now for my ‘headbands of the month’.  This just shows you that you should not rule out printed ribbons.  These came out great!  You can find a video tutoial for the Chevron Woven Ribbon Headband HERE.
You can find the video tutorial for the Basic Woven Ribbon Headband Tutorial HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Your next stop is Teresa’s awesome blog.

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

Happy Halloween

Hi everyone and Happy September.  This is my FAVORITE time of the year for crafting.  There is a chill in the air, and I just adore the beautiful colors of Autumn and Halloween.

RRR has a great new Halloween Themed Ribbon Club Assortment for September.  This assortment contains 9 styles and 17 yards of ribbon and trim.

Not a member yet?  What are you waiting for!!  Sign up today and get a fun new color or holiday themed assortment each month.  What a great way to build your ribbon stash.

Today I will share my first Halloween card of the season.

My bow is a double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 using the Black Delicate Stitched Satin from the September Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also wrapped some fun Halloween Baker’s Twine around the center band of the card.  The Halloween sentiment is a digital stamp from Create with TLC.
Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Halloween Bats and Christmas Tags with Beautiful Bows!

Hi everyone and Happy Halloween!
I hope you are all having a Spook-tacular Day!
First I’d like to share the Bat Party Favors I made for my son’s class.  He’s an elementary teacher and I always make treats for his kiddos.
This year I found some quick and easy bat designs for my Silhouette Cameo and went with them.  They are open at the top for goodies.  They went together really quickly and I filled ’em up with candy.
The handle is made with Black Jute String from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The plain one is for the boys.
I jazzed up the ones for the girls with a cute little bow made from 3/8″ Tangerine Double-faced Satin with my Bow-it-All Tool.  For our beginner Bow-it-All Video, click HERE.  You’ll be making gorgeous bows in no time!  
I simply adhered the bow to the bat with Scor-Tape.

Christmas Tags
I also wanted to share another project I featured on my latest VIDEO TUTORIAL.
These fun Christmas Tags are from a Digital Collage sheet from my friend Ginny at Polly’s Paper Studio. You can find the collage sheet I used and more at the Polly’s Paper Studio Etsy Shop.
I used a couple of the bows I created in my last video tutorial and I enlarged one of the images to coordinate with the size of my bow.  I did these projects backwards and made the bows first and then made a project to showcase them.
The larger tag is made with our Burlap Center Stitch Ribbon and embellished with a Turquoise Sweetheart Blossom in the center.  I cut the tag image out and layered it on a piece of turquoise cardstock and then kraft cardstock. The tassel is made with Turquoise 20lb Hemp Cording.  I simply separated the 3-ply cording down to three individual strands and grouped them together for the tassel.
For the smaller tag, I layered and assembled the same as described above. The bow and tassel are made with Variegated 20lb Hemp Cording Earthy.  The center is embellished with a brad and the tassel is made in the same manner as the first one.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  
Happy Crafting!
