Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cheryl’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 beautiful mix of rich Autumn colors. 

Not a member yet?  JOIN TODAY!
The August Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.

Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed mix of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbons.

My card today features two of the ribbon styles from the August Ribbon Club assortment and some beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn designs.  I just love creating with the rich colors of Autumn.  I even added some gold leaf to some of the leaves and to the background honeycomb die for some rich shimmery sparkle.
My beautiful bi-color double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0.

Basic Checkerboard Woven Ribbon Headband Video Tutorial

Hi friends.  Today I have a fun new and EASY Basic Checkerboard Woven Ribbon Headband tutorial.  You know I love woven ribbon headbands and I hope you do too!  I really hope you will give this one a try!!

My color palette for this headband came from the lovely June 2016 Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon which is filled with beautiful yellow and orange ribbon styles.  This headband is created using 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon and a 1/2″ White Plastic Headband.
Did you miss out on the June Assortment?
Nope – you can still grab one!
You can join now and get the June and July assortments for a special introductory price thought the end of July.
Both the June and July assortments contain 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon each.  Each monthly shipment is a color or holiday themed collection of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
This new woven ribbon headband variation is a great beginner headband.  This would be a great project to tackle with the ‘tweens while they are home for the summer.

I created my woven checkerboard headband and then embellished it with a beautiful bi-color double-loop bow made with two ribbon styles from the RRR June Ribbon Club Assortment.
