I tied my ribbons together using my Zutter Bow-it-All tool. That tool makes it so easy to tie together two different ribbons into one fabby bow! I don't think I could have done this without using it. I topped it with a little Christmas Baker's Twine and some rusty jingle bells. And yes, they really jingle!
This wooden button was begging for a little bit of ribbon in the center, so I answered it's plea with this cute little square knot bow. It made that button really stand out!
Lots of layers, lots of stitching, a couple of cute paper clips, and this vintage Christmas card is ready for Santa's sleigh.
The inside is finished simply with a stamped and embossed sentiment.
So, how about you? Have you started your Christmas cards yet, or do you wait until the last minute? We are definitely in the countdown stage here with less than 10 weeks to go until the big event! Better stock up on Christmas ribbon and get your craft on, friends!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello there...today is my turn over at RRR. I have been obsessed lately with junk bows. Have you seen them? Do a search for them and they are all over! Such a wonderful way to use up those little snippets of ribbons you have laying around. We all know as ribbon lovers it is so hard to throw any snippets away! Some people use every kinda texture imaginable when making these fun bows.....paper, fabric scrap, tinsel, and of course ribbon. As you can see in the first photo....I stayed pretty simple. I gathered up my ribbons - including 1.5 inch red gingham,natural burlap with wire edge,mini pom pom in red,betsy white crochet lace, and tulle. I like to use at least one wired ribbon because it helps add stability to the bow. After you pick your ribbons, snip the ends to give a decorative edge. From there you simply gather them all up and using your finger and pinch the middle to flair the ends out. Using your tulle wrap it around the middle and tie really tight.....that will help really poof up your bow.
As you can see I decided to use my first junk bow on a retro Christmas card...which I gave a few step x steps on as well. I added some red seam binding and greenery to my junk bow. I was having so much fun I ended up making two bows....I used the other on the cute polka dot bag. These types of bows really lend themselves well to shabby or kitschy looking creations I think. I love them....and plan on making more. That is it for me! Hope you enjoy! hugs, cherry
First I want to thank our retiring design team members. We will miss them. Cheryl, Linsey and Carolyn will be leaving us at the end of October. They did a fantastic job and gave us tons of great ideas and inspiration. I encourage you all to visit their blogs and become a follower so you can continue to be inspired by their fantastic work.
I also want to thank everyone who applied for our new design team positions. There were so many awesome entries that it was very hard to select just a couple new people. You'll find some familiar faces below and several brand new ones too.
Hi ya peeps, today I am wishing Halloween was over and done with. How many times can you walk pass the stash of candy that is waiting for trick or treaters and not eat anything?
I took out some pink paper and got crafty with my dies and noticed that I have the PERFECT ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to match the paper! This doesn't happen often and I just went with it....
I have used this ribbon a lot when creating my cards, I LOVE it and it comes in a wide variety of colors. It has a little bit of shimmer, a little wrinkled texture and it is pretty easy to work with. A perfect finish to a sweet bird card for a family friend.
This is the second post of the day. Be sure to scroll down to see the beautiful project that Linsey has made for us today.

Hello to all the RRR friends and fans. It's Jenn here from Jax Bean Stalks with another fun card and some fabbie Really Reasonable Ribbon! With Christmas fast approaching (forget Halloween and Thanksgiving LOL!), I thought I would give you a couple of simple card ideas.
For this 1st card, I have used RRR's Plaid Ribbon Christmas/Red/Green/Gold. This fun ribbon is really easy to tie. And the picture doesn't do it justice. The Gold is just beautiful running in tiny little threads throughout the ribbon. This is definitely a go to for your Christmas projects.
