Really Reasonable Ribbon Halloween Themed Challenge

It’s time for a fun new challenge over at the

The theme for Challenge #58 is Halloween with Ribbon or Trim.
I’ve been having some fun with my Silhouette Cameo.  I made some fun bat party favors for the kids in my son’s 5th grade class.  I hope they like them!
I used the Bat Candy Bar Wrapper and the Halloween Tag Toppers from the Silhouette design store.  I resized the bat to W-4.740 and H-5.250 and the tags to 1.1 for the inside circle and 1.42 for the outer scalloped circle.  This worked fine for Hershey snack size candy bars.  I finished it off by tying the tag on with some Black Licorice Baker’s Twine.  Baker’s Twine just works great for everything, doesn’t it?

RRR September Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR September Blog Hop. 

If you arrived here from Judy’s awesome 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 just love all the fun colors you can put together for Halloween.  Isn’t it delicious??!

I have a quick and easy card for you this month because while you are hopping along, I am enjoying a relaxing week on the St. Lawrence River in the Thousand Islands area in northern NY.  What a beautiful area to visit!

For my card today I used a couple of ribbons from this month’s assortment and my image and saying is from a sheet of Graphic 45 design paper from the Happpy Haunting Collection.  I just layered it on some cardstock cut with Spellbinder dies.

I added the ruched ribbon by adhering it with Scor-Tape.

I finished the card off with a bow made using my Bow-Easy Tool.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Your next stop is Heidi’s wonderful blog.
I would love for you to leave a comment before you go.
