SPOOKY Witches "Trick or Treat" Bag

Hello Friends!!!!
Today I'm sharing my Trick or Treat "SPOOKY Witches" Goody Bag that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful ribbons from this months Ribbon Club Assortment kit. I love making these, and this one is a little different than the normal one.  It has 2 pockets. 

So what I did with this bag was cut the top part off, and then add it to the bottom to create a pocket to hold the tag. I guess I could put a goody in there as well, but didn't have any to add :)

I used Scor-tape to close the bottom pocket.  The 1/8" width tape is what I used, and to attach it I used the 1/2" Scor-Tape, both from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Ribbons I used from this months Ribbon Club Assortment are: The Black Ric Rac, Green Polka Dot Satin, Black Gingham, and Black Delicate Stitched Satin. LOVE all the ribbons in this months kit!  Well, I love them every month! Bonnie always does an AWESOME job at having these assortments perfect for all of us to use.

Next I added some of the Orange Pom Pom Mini to the bottom and top of the bag, and then the Green Polka Dots from this month's Ribbon Club Kit. For the top part of my bag, I used the Ric Rac in Black, as well as on my Witches Shoe.

The Hemp Cording I used as laces, and I chose to use both Black & Orange from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also used Buttons as well, and tied the Black hemp through one. My little Sweetheart Blossom, is also from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and Bonnie has tons of these in stock. These are now and have been my FAVORITE flowers to use on all my crafting projects :)

The Bag, design paper, and tag are all from Pebbles Thirty One Collection. My witches shoe was cut out using the Cricut and the cartridge called Happy Hauntings. Little tickets are from SU!, and hopefully I didnt forget anything here :)

Thank you all for looking and have a super wonderful day!!

Hugs to all,

Nevermore Halloween Card

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and I'm sharing a very Halloweeny card.  Bonnie has the bestest Halloween trims, so it's very easy to be inspired. For this card I used Black Plaid Ribbon and Swiss Dots on Tangerine. Don't they look scrumptious layered up like that???

I used some festive holiday patterned papers from my stash and all the vintage images came from my NeverMore Halloween Collage Sheet. It's sorta Halloween meets Goth meets Poe and roses. Anyhoo, however you describe it...I loved working with it to create this card!

Wising you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )G

Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge here at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Please scroll down to the next post for the winners of the last challenge.

The theme for Challenge #103 is Sports & Ribbon.

Here is a little inspiration from our design team for challenge #103 to get you started.  All of the sample projects feature ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.



Now, let's see your Sports themed creations! 
We will be selecting our top three favorite projects to feature, so stop back on October 1st to see our picks along with our next challenge theme.

Live, Laugh, Love Birthday Card

Hello, all you Ribbon Lovers! Kathy here on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog again today. We just celebrated a whole host of birthdays in our family, and I was working right down to the wire getting all the cards made.I needed to make a cute card, but it had to be a quick card!  I had my gorgeous August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon on my desk, and suddenly realized that these ribbons are the perfect match for the G45 Typography papers. And that, my friends, is how this Live, Laugh, Love birthday card came about.

RRR Sept 02

I just love the way the Autumn Diagonal Striped Grosgrain Ribbon picks up on all the colors in the card focal. It just couldn't be a more perfect match. I added a button card that my sweet friend Birgit sent me in a little swap we did earlier this year. How did she know I was going to be needing these colors on a card? Thanks, Birgit! I made a quick rosette, topping it with a piece of chipboard from the paper collection.

RRR Sept 01

To make my bow, I cut a piece of the ribbon slightly longer than my card, then cut little fishtails in each end. I covered the back of the ribbon with 1/4" Scor-tape and centered it on my card. I used my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to tie the little bow. Because it's a 6" square card, I didn't have an envelope big enough for it, so dug into my paper stash and made the pretty envelope you see behind the card.

RRR Sept 04

The inside carries over the colors from the outside of the card. I just layered some Typography papers over my green panel and then tied the whole thing together with another strip of that fabulous diagonal striped grosgrain ribbon. A hand written sentiment and a stamped birthday greeting finished off the card.

 I love the way a good ribbon ties together loose ends, don't you? 

Thanks for stopping by!

At the end of the hop, comment on this post answering the question below for a chance to win our September Ribbon Club assortment shown below.

Our question of the month is:
What is your number one crafting interest?  What else do you dabble in?

Many of you will be surprised to know that my first love is quilting.  Yes, quilting!  BUT, I have not done any quilting in ages because I just don't have the time.  My second would be papercrafting and ribbon work and luckily that is something you can do in shorter lengths of time.  I also love and dabble in knitting, beadwork, polymer clay work, stained glass work and on and on and on.  I've never met a craft I didn't want to try!  :)

Our winner will be selected from the numbered comments on this post on Wednesday, 9/17. Be sure to check back on Wednesday evening to see if you are our lucky winner.

Thanks so much for hopping with us today. We hope you'll stop by and so some shopping at Really Reasonable Ribbon soon.
