The April Ribbon Club Assortment is an Aqua and Coral Ribbon Mix that contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

So, I have a lot going on here.  Where to start….

As you may have noticed, I’ve been on a kick with the distress ink background papers.  You can see that here.  I didn’t have paper in exactly the color I wanted, so I made some!

My dies are all from Cheery Lynn Designs.  My card base is 5-1/2″ square and then I just built my layers.  You can pretty much see what I did from the photos.  My flower was shaped with a foam pad and stylus for a little dimension and then assembled.  It was finished off with a 12mm Dotted Wave Rhinestone.  I’ve also embellished the corners of the card with 8mm White Flat Back Pearls.  Really Reasonable Ribbon now carries a large variety of pretty Embellishments at really reasonable prices.

My beautiful bi-color double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two of the 5/8″ ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment.

Red and White Kanzashi Woven Ribbon Headband

Hi friends.  Today I have a pretty red and white woven ribbon headband with a kanzashi ribbon flower to share with you made with pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have Youtube tutorials to teach you how to make both items that I will share as well at the bottom of this post.

The woven ribbon headband was made using two of the ribbons in the January Ribbon Club Assortment.  It’s not too late to grab one of these gorgeous assortments.

This pretty 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 new ribbon styles.
My kanzashi flower was made with 1-1/2″ wide Grosgrain Ribbon in white and red.  The center was finished off with a 12mm Flat Back Pearl.  The woven ribbon headband was created on a 1/2″ White Plastic Headband.
Below I will share the video tutorials for each part of the headband shown above.
