Red Roses and Ribbon True Love Folio for the RRR Blog Hop
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! This Red Roses and Ribbon True Love Folio is my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon January Blog hop. You should be coming here from Ginny’s gorgeous blog. “Be My Valentine” is the name of this month’s beautiful Ribbon Club Assortment.
You really can’t go wrong with so many beautiful ribbons to choose from! But for this 6×6 folio, the 5/8″ Poppy Red Satin with a Grosgrain Edge fit the bill perfectly! Because this ribbon is soft and silky, it ties beautiful bows!
It also works great as a border when layered with the 3/8″ White Satin with Red Dots ribbon from the collection.
TIP: Add interest to a floral cluster with Beaded Berry Stamens. Simply tuck them in filler with your red roses.
True Love Shaker Frame
Here’s how I turned this Reneabouquets Beautiful Laser Cut Frame into a Shaker Element.
- First, heat emboss the frame with Versamark Ink and Shabby White Embossing Enamel.
- Next, die cut an oval from clear cardstock (acetate) and adhere to the back of the frame.
- Then adhere 3 layers of 1/8″ foam tape around the inside edge of the frame.
- Now place your shaker elements on the card base over the area where you intend to adhere the frame.
- Position the frame over the shaker mix and press in place.
A Peek Inside
Creating the inside of this folio was such fun! There is a lot of room to add interactive element like this kinetic waterfall feature.
Pull the tab on the bottom of the waterfall and the pages flip.
There’s even a secret message hidden at the bottom!
Tie some ribbon around the top of this little magnet insert to add style and texture.
Flip the magnet pocket page open to reveal another waterfall and a treat pocket.
This Echo Park Amour collection is older, but classic. I love anything with Eiffel Tower images.
Tuck a tea wallet and a chocolate treat in the center pocket. It’s such a lovely way to say “Be My Valentine!”
Video Walk Through
So many of you asked for a video walk through of this project that I put a quick one together for you on my YouTube channel. Enjoy!
