Apple Picking Birthday Card Folio

Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop: Apple Picking Birthday Card Folio

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the RRR August Blog Hop.  You should be coming here  from Karen’s lovely blog.  Today we’re featuring the gorgeous Autumn Assortment from the RRR Ribbon Club.  I’ve created a vintage style Apple Picking Birthday Card Folio that celebrates the beauty of my favorite season.  Take a peek:

Crimson and gold are the colors of fall, so I decided to enhance this lovely apple picking birthday card folio with a Sherry Checkerboard Satin Bow.  I love its soft texture, pattern and sheen.

Ribbon makes a great belly band on any card.  The belly band on this 5″ x 7″ top fold card is made by adhering rows of Sherry Diamond Satin Ribbon, 3/8″ Autumn Diamond Print Grosgrain Ribbon, and 3/8″ Autumn Flowers Grosgrain Ribbon to the card base with 1/4″ Scor-Tape.

Natural burlap string and gorgeous Little Birdie Flowers from their fall assortment add texture and vintage style to the card.

Ribbon looks great inside a card, too!  I’ve added a tiny bit to the honey stick in the top pocket.  And the slash pocket is edged with 3/8″ Leaves on Turftan Brown Grosgrain Ribbon.

The lower pocket holds a little 3.5″ x 5.5″ photo folio.  To create the closure, adhere 1/4″ Scor-Tape to the back side of the folio.  Then wrap more of the pretty Autumn Leaves Grosgrain Ribbon around the front and tie a bow.  Easy, peasy…but so pretty!

I used a scrap of yellow cardstock to create this little flap folio.  The first flap is a pocket that is just wide enough to hold a gift card.

Here’s a peek at the folio fully opened.  I tucked one of the lovely cardstock components from Authentique’s Pleasant Collection Kit  here.  (All the papers in this project are from that collection.)

Oh, and just to tempt you, here’s a look at this month’s glorious Ribbon Club Assortment.

Although this is called the Autumn Assortment, I think it’s a very versatile collection! I used this ribbon on a lovely summer themed card HERE.

Let’s Hop!

Now hop on over and see what my sweet and talented teammate Linsey has in store for you.  She always has the BEST ideas for using the ribbon club assortment.

Then be sure to hop on over to the RRR BLOG to answer Bonnie’s question of the month.  Your name will be entered into a random drawing to receive your very own Autumn Ribbon Club Assortment.

Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card

Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Have you had a chance to play with the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon yet?  I pulled them out to make this shabby chic Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card the other day.  Ooh la la!  I love these ribbons!

See what I mean?  These pretty ribbons are the perfect playmate for my 6″ x 6″ easel card.  Create a vintage style border by adding a row of Sunflowers on Kiwi Grosgrain Ribbon over a row of Crochet Lace.  I used a snippet of this same lace as a base for my vintage buttons.

Paint a metal butterfly charm and adhere it over the butterfly in the paper collection to add even more dimension.

Metal leaves are painted with Distress Paint, then tied through the long ends of the thread I used to stitch around the card perimeter.

Here’s how I created the bow cluster on this pretty card

  • Top with 3 Little Birdie Butter Cup Grape Tan blossoms.’
  • Add a stem from Rosemund Grape and Tan Little Birdie Flowers to the right of the bow cluster.
  • Add prills, if desired.

There’s room inside to add your own personal greeting.  And of course, I had to create a couple of little pockets to fill with treats.

Here’s an itty bitty card where you can tuck in a teeny tiny note or gift.

And here’s a sweet little lavender magnet and sachet duo.  Aren’t they fun?

I love the versatility of this month’s ribbon club.  It’s great for end of summer and also great for fall.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and techniques that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Garden Themed Mother Goose Shaker Top Folio

Garden Themed Mother Goose Shaker Top Folio for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  How does your garden grow? Summer is in full bloom here in North Carolina.  My darling husband decided he wanted to do a little gardening this summer, so we’ve been anxiously waiting to pick our very own home grown heirloom tomatoes.  This gardening project inspired me to create a super cute Garden Themed Mother Goose Shaker Top Folio using Graphic 45’s Mother Goose and Home Sweet Home Collections.

This is a 7″ x 5″ side fold folio.  Don’y you just love the way this Capri Blue Taffeta Ribbon pops against the primary colors of the Mother Goose Collection?   Taffeta ribbon ties the most beautiful bows!  And I love the touch of Natural Burlap String in the bow cluster, too.

Red Sweetheart Blossoms look so darling mixed in with my handmade flowers.

On the inside of this folio, I’ve used papers from both Mother Goose and Home Sweet Home.  You wouldn’t think that they’d work so well together, but I think they look great.

RRR Hop: Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Party Tag Box

Really Reasonable Ribbon Hop: Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Party Tag Box

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It’s time for the Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog Hop! You should be coming here all inspired after having visited Karen’s lovely blog.   I’ve created the cutest little Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Party Tag Box to share with you today.  It’s all decked out with the RRR Blue and Yellow Ribbon Mix and ready to party.

These are the gorgeous ribbons in the July Ribbon Club.  I love all the ribbon club assortments, but this one is especially beautiful.  The colors are just so perfect for summer crafting!

Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Party Tag Box with Eileen Hull Card Box

Summer parties, here I come!  The base for this tag box is Eileen Hull’s Card Box Die from her Book Club I Collection.  I’ve decorated the box with beautiful Botanical Tea Papers.  Then I added a lovely border strip to the bottom of the box.  Next, I wrapped the top of the box with the gorgeous Capri Blue Plaid Ribbon from the Ribbon Club Assortment.

This sweet little banner is from the original Botanical Tea Collection.  To make it, twist Natural Burlap String until it begins to coil in on itself.  Then, tie knots on either end of the string and adhere to the box base with hot glue.  Next, I threaded some of my precious vintage pearl buttons and adhered them between each banner.  The finishing touch is a beautiful Beaded Fancy Flower from my Etsy shop.

The back side of the box is just as pretty as the front!

Botanical Tea Party Tag Box: The Tags

I created a trio of tags to slip into the box.  These are Graphic 45 Square Ivory Laser Cut Tags from the Celebrate, Party, Cheers assortment.

Each tag is topped with a different ribbon from the Ribbon Club Assortment.  This one is topped with the 5/8″ Yellow Poppy Print Satin Ribbon.

Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Party Box by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 06Tags are always more fun when they are interactive.  Create a pocket and tuck in a tea bag and tag for extra fun!

Top this lovely tag with some chipboard and summery Capri Blue Taffeta Ribbon.  Do you see the sweet little teacup charms?  I’ve attached them  with Natural Burlap String.

This tag opens to reveal a little gift card pocket.  Use magnets to hold it shut.

This is a 5″ x 7″ top fold card done up in summery shades of yellow and blue.  Honey is a part of my daily routine.  I add it to my morning cuppa every day.  So when I saw this vintage honey bottle, I just knew it was perfect to use with this month’s ribbon club assortment.
