Autumn Sunflowers for the Really Reasonable Ribbon August 2023 Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  These Autumn Sunflowers are my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon August 2023 Blog Hop.  You should be coming here full of crafty inspiration after visiting Gloria’s lovely blog.  Our theme this month is Autumn of my all time favorites!

Turquoise is such a great color for fall projects.  So I dug into my stash of RRR ribbons and trims looking for this Mallard Shimmer Satin.

This color not only coordinates well with the designer papers, but it really makes my handmade sunflowers pop off the page.

Create a quick, easy and stylish ribbon border by layering Autumn Leaves Satin Ribbon over the Mallard Shimmer Satin Ribbon.  I use Scor-Tape to hold everything neatly in place.

Tiny Teal Baker’s Twine Bows dress up a wooden button and the layered sticker charm at the top of the page.

A Peek Inside

Narrow ribbon like the 3/8″ Autumn Leaves Satin makes a great border on the pocket inside this card.

TIP: Create a fun shaped pocket by adding adhesive only to the lower edge of an ephemera bit.  Then you can tuck in a little blank sentiment card.  Photos can be added to the flap feature on the left.

A small tag makes a much bigger impact when you top it with more ribbon and Baker’s Twine bow.  Ribbon really is a magical element !

Autumn weather calls for a warming cup of chai, so I tucked a chai tea bag into the gift card wallet, and dressed up a honey stick for the pocket.  What a great gift!

On With the Hop

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties the amazing Cheryl has in store for you.  Then be sure to finish up the hop over on the RRR Blog.  You can answer Bonnie’s Question of the Month and enter the drawing for a $10 RRR Gift Certificate and a free digital stamp set of your choice.

You can find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for hopping, friends!

    My eyes were surprised by the brilliant teal color on this lovely card…not used to seeing blue as a Fall color. This paper collection even features teal pumpkins! It’s a color contrast that really pops! Thanks for the close up on your beautiful sunflowers. Love the image on the gift card wallet front! I’m wishing for cooling Fall weather…we’re on the first of a 5 day stretch of 100 plus temps…YUCK!
