If you arrived here from Cherry’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 made up of yummy blues, browns and ivory. I just love all the look of it. Isn’t it fun??! The blues and browns are wonderful for masculine projects, and if you want to add a touch of feminine, there are two pretty delicate rose prints.
I couldn’t make up my mind this month, so I have three projects to show you. Woohoo!!
First up I have a Thank You card. You should always have a couple of those on hand, right? I did a fun little triple ribbon banner down the front under the sentiment and added a gorgeous double-bow made with my Bow-it-All Tool.
If you are still on the fence about investing in this tool, you should go for it!!
You can view my Bow-it-All video tutorials HERE.
Next up is a birthday card. So far I’m two for two on birthdays this year!! Woohoo. Still building my stash though so I’ll be ready for anything!! Although this is mainly blues and browns, it’s still a girly card with the flower print paper and the big bow. I’ve been downloading some cool fonts to my computer lately so I can make my own sentiments in whatever size I need. This font is called Chocolate Covered Raindrops and I love it.
Again I have a pretty double-bow made with my Bow-it-All Tool and I also ran a piece of 5/8″ Checkerboard Ribbon with a 3/8″ piece of Blue Mist Leaves and Berried Satin centered on top across the center of the card which holds the birthday sentiment label on. It also works to cover the seam where the two design papers meet.
Here’s a peek at the inside. This is a digi sentiment from Create with TLC.
And, here is my monthly headband.
I do love making woven ribbon headbands. This one is so easy, anyone can do it. If you missed my tutorial, you can find it HERE.
As always, my bow is detachable to you can wear the headband with or without the bow. The middle of the bow has a 20mm Mulberry Open Rose. I started with a baby blue rose, but it was too pale, so I inked it up a bit with a darker blue color so it would match the ribbon. If you love the roses but don’t want to invest in a bunch of different colors, go with white or ivory and you can ink them to match any project!
I would love for you to leave a comment before you go.

Wow! You have been a busy girl! I love the first card's bold graphic design and gorgeous ribbon. The second card makes me think wistfully of spring. And I am going to have to learn how to make those headbands for my grandgirls!
WOW Bonnie! I LOVE your cards. The clean lines are perfect!!! Great headband too!
Such awesome sortiment this month. I absolutely LOVE them all, and they´re sooo perfect, as I´ve suddenly got a new "grandkid" at 8 and it´s the first boy in the family, after we´ve had 7 girls for 19 years now, so I can almost only think girly, when I create, but now I really need to learn to think of a boy too, so better get it learned now ha ha ha, and this months ribbons are just so perfect for boys, besides I just LOVES blue myself
Love your creation. And those ribbons rock!
Gorgeous cards! That first one is my favorite. So elegant!

All your projects are just beautiful. I love the colors and the use of ribbon. thanks for sharing.
Your projects are all fabulous! So in love with your cards! These colors together are scrumptious!
I was never a fan of blue and brown until seeing the cards and projects on this blog hop. Your cards are fabulous and I just received my Bow It All and haven't used it yet. I'm a little intimidated by it, to tell you the truth. But your bows are so beautiful that I think I better give this new toy a shot. I adore each one of your cards. The ribbon banner is awesome and I want to remember that idea. Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs, Gail
Oh Bonnie these cards and the headband project are wonderful. I love the colors in this months pack. I particularly love the ribbon treatment you used on your first card. Have a great week and thanks for another great hop!
