Petticoat Lane Vintage Sewing Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon January Blog Hop
Hello, Friends! Welcome to the first RRR Blog Hop of 2018. You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog. I’ve created a pretty in pink Petticoat Lane Vintage Sewing Card for you today, but before I reveal it, let’s take a look at the fabulous January Ribbon Club Assortment.
These are super fun ribbons to use on all your Valentine projects, but I found they work really well on regular cards, too.
I also used the Valentine Mix ribbons to make my belly band:
- First, find the center of the card layer, and then add a strip of 1/2″ Scor-Tape. Run the tape past the edge of the card layer so you can wrap the ribbon around the back. This creates a neat, clean edge.
- Next, place Hot Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon over the Scor-Tape. Press to secure firmly and wrap the edges around the back of the card layer.
- Now, add a strip of 1/4″ Scor-Tape in the middle of the Hot Pink Satin Ribbon. Then attach a piece of white crochet lace.
- Then add a strip of 1/4″ Scor-Tape above and below the hot pink satin ribbon. Add a row of the Pink Mixed Diamond Grosgrain ribbon here.
- Now you just add your additional card layers, easy as pie!
Petticoat Lane Vintage Sewing Card: Ribbon Embellishments
This pouf-tastic double layer bow cluster is the main embellishment on this Petticoat Lane Vintage Sewing Card. But you can use ribbon as an embellishment in other ways, too.
- Thread ribbon through a paper clip or shaped paper clip to create a cute banner. I topped this one with a button to keep with the sewing theme. But you could easily add a key or other shape to fit the theme of your project.
- Wrap ribbon around a miniature wooden spool.
I picked up these teeny tiny spools of thread at a yard sale. Since the thread was a perfect color match, I did not remove it to add ribbon this time. In other projects, I have wrapped empty spools with ribbon to make a custom embellishment. And, do you see the little snippet of crochet lace peeking out from the embellishment cluster? It adds just the right amount of texture.
Petticoat Lane Vintage Sewing Card: A Peek Inside
The inside of this card is sweet and simple. I simply added designer papers (this is Photo Play’s Vintage Girl Collection, in case you want to know).
Transform cardstock scraps into this sweet little tea bag wallet. This adds a personal touch to the card design.
