Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals Folio for the RRR June Blog Hop
Hello, Friends! Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon June Blog Hop. My project inspiration this month is this Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals Folio. It’s a great match up for the June Ribbon Club Assortment.
Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals Folio: Give Me the Skinny
I decided to go taller and skinner with this folio. (If only it was so easy in real life!) The base measures 4 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ with a 1/2″ spine.
Turquoise Plaid Ribbon looks fabulous with all the pinks and greens in this collection, so I chose to use it for the ribbon closure on the folio. That looked so good that I decided to add a little border strip of it topped with crochet lace. Then I created a bow cluster using Hot Pink Satin with a Silver Metallic Edge and placed it atop that border strip. A loopy silver metallic string bow goes perfectly with the metallic edge on the satin ribbon.
Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals Folio: A Peek Inside
Flip pages add so much fun to a folio design. I decorated this one with butterfly stamps and little sentiment strips from the paper collection.
Here’s a look at the fully opened folio. As you can see, I’ve used ribbon from the Club Assortment inside, too.
The center box style pocket holds a trio of treats all dressed up with pretty ribbon. The Tea Wallet is sporting a Turquoise Plaid Ribbon Belly Band. The vintage silver plate spoon is held in place with a snippet of Hot Pink Satin Ribbon. I love the color and texture these ribbons add to the interior of the folio.
Even tiny scraps of ribbon can be put to good use! A folded scrap of Turquoise Plaid Ribbon looks so pretty tucked under the button of this stitched magnet.
