This month we are showcasing the Spring Rainbow Ribbons from the March Ribbon Club assortment. Here’s a peeky:
Aren’t they yummy? They remind me of Easter Eggs and they are also a perfect match for the Coffee Break paper collection from Prima. My sweet sis in law just had a birthday, and she loves Starbucks, so I made this cute little birthday mini book and put it in the mail to her.
I just love the bright, cheery colors and fun graphics and the wonderful way they work with these pretty ribbons. The album base is made from one sheet of 12″ x 12″ cardstock and opens out to a trifold wallet with lots of fun pockets and places to tuck tags and gift cards. The album is held shut with a perky bow closure made with Daffodil Satin Swirls Ribbon. The cutie pie bow on the side is made with Coral Rose Funky Flowers Grosgrain Ribbon. I tossed in a few sequin flowers to add a little sparkle and shine.
Once the bow is untied, this is what the mini album looks like. Lots of fun papers, stitching, some stamping and more beautiful ribbons. I picked up on the aqua tones in the paper by adding a simple square knot bow made with this pretty Paisely Print Grosgrain Ribbon. Cut on the diagonal and combined with more Funky Flowers ribbon, it makes a cute banner on the facing page.
Here’s the cute tag that is tucked into the pocket.
I just love my sister-in-law, and wanted to create something that would feel like a party in a card. All these fun pullouts and tags make the mini interactive, and that is always a fun thing. The tags can be hung on the fridge or used as bookmarks, pinned on a bulletin board….any number of uses. I tucked a Starbucks gift card into one pocket, and an individually wrapped Ghiradelli chocolate into another. So it’s kind of like a treasure hunt, too!
Here’s a peeky at the back side of the mini. It’s fun, isn’t it? There’s another pocket/tag combo here, just for extra fun!
If you’d like me to share a step out tutorial for making this design, let me know, and I’ll work one up for one of my regular RRR posts. It’s a fun design, fairly easy to make and can be adapted for any occasion.
Now, hop on over to be inspired by the shabby chic goodness you’ll find at Cherry’s blog.
