Hop To It Easter Bunny Wobbler Card

Photoplay Hop To It Easter Bunny Wobbler Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Easter is right around the corner, but if you Hop To It you still have time to make this adorable Easter Bunny Wobbler Card.  What’s a wobbler card?  Well, I placed a small coil of thin wire behind my Easter bunny.  Now when you touch him, he wobbles like a bowl full of Jelly Beans!

How hilarious is that?

 Can you spy the Pastel Plaid Belly Band?  It makes me think of Jelly Beans, too!   Top it with  a Hot Pink Double Faced Satin Bow from the March Ribbon Club Assortment.  Then add some Iridescent Metallic String and Spring Chrysanthemums for the perfect finishing touch.

TIP: Add layers and dimension by backing fussy cut elements with foam tabs.  It’s a simple trick, but it really makes a card come alive.

Create a little pocket inside the card, then fill it up with tasty Easter Chocolate Treats.  (They’re Easter Bunny approved!)

Since Easter comes late this year, you still have time to put together some adorable Easter cards for friends and family.  But….you’d better Hop To It!

Now go make something beautiful!

Really Reasonable Ribbon March 2022 Blog Hop

Really Reasonable Ribbon March 2022 Blog Hop: Stamperia Lilac Flowers Loaded Envelope

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon March 2022 Blog Hop.   You should be coming here from Ginny’s lovely blog.  We are showcasing the Spring Pastel Ribbons from the March 2022 Ribbon Club Assortment.  What a pretty array of spring colors and patterns to play with!

Lilac Memories

 

Spring always reminds me of the beautiful lilac trees I enjoyed as a child.  Lilacs thrived in our chilly Vermont springtime.  They always blossomed in late May, and the heady fragrance was on the breeze everywhere you went.  We used to pick bouquets for our teachers on the way into school.  I remember the heavy blossoms would be dripping with lilac scented dew, and we would wear that lovely scent all day long.  I think that’s why I was drawn to the ribbons with purple shades for this project.

First, decorate the flap side of the envelope box.  What a treat to use these lovely ribbons to adorn my loaded envelope!   I created a border and a belly band with the pretty pastel floral satin ribbonHyacinth Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon adds a pop of color and contrast to the design.

Butterflies, Rosettes, Shaker Frames and Lilacs

Now it’s time to flip the envelope over and decorate the front side.  This is the display side of the envelope, so I really dressed it up.

Hyacinth Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon highlights the Reneabouquets Shaker Frame and Butterfly.  So if you get tired of the view on one side of the envelope, you can flip it around to the back side.

Delicate stitched satin is one of my very favorite ribbons to work with because it ties so easily and creates such beautiful bows.

Springtime Tea Party in a Loaded Envelope

Now let’s take a look at all the goodies I tucked inside this loaded envelope.

First, I created a slimline tri-fold folio.  The ribbon closure adds texture, pattern, and a feminine feel to the folio design.

 

The front flap page is the perfect place to tuck in a trio of tags and some chocolate treats.

Write little notes on the back of the tags, or add small photos here.

The center panel is a flap page with a magnetic closure.  You’ll find lots of room for photos here.

The box of this loaded envelope is so roomy that it’s easy to tuck in a bookmark, vintage teaspoon, cookies, chocolate, tea envelope and a butterfly rosette wand.  Dress up the butterfly wand with Polka Dot Confetti Ribbon from the Club Assortment.

Once all the treats have been enjoyed, the envelope box is a great place to keep photos, letters or other small memorabilia.

On With the Hop

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties my teammate Cheryl has in store for you. Then pay a visit to Karen’s lovely blog.  Finish up over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  Be sure to answer Bonnie’s Question of the Month to be entered into a drawing for a FREE Ribbon Club Assortment.

Here Come the Easter Gnomes!

Photoplay Year With My Gnomies Easter Gnomes by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Here Come the Easter Gnomes!

Hello, Friends!  I hope you are ready for a fun post with some  adorable Easter Gnomes, vibrant flowers and the March Ribbon Club from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Dress up the corners of your folio in its Easter best by adding twin bows tied from Pastel Vertical Stripe Ribbon.  Then top with some metallic string and spring flowers.

Green ribbon can be tricky to work with.  There are so many different shades.  But this Apple Taffeta is a perfect match for the springy greens in this paper collection.

Z-Folds, Flip Pages and Pockets

Just for fun, I created a Z-fold front for this 5 1/2″ square folio.  Score the card base the same as you would for an easel card.  But fold the right hand side of the front cover back toward the fold to make a Z-Fold. Now you have a sneaky little spot behind the front cover to add in a pocket and flap page.  How fun is that?

You can see the inside of the Z-Fold in this photo.  I  like the way the Z-Fold design allows the bow from the flap page to be seen on the cover. Can you spot the Gnome Easter Bunny?  Too funny!

Here’s the little folio fully opened.  I think it would be fun to write a message inside the calendar blocks…or even a secret code to be solved!

The center pocket provides a space for photos, tags, journal cards…even small treats!  Opening this fun folio is a little bit like going on your own personal Easter Egg hunt, isn’t it?

Have you started making your Easter cards and projects yet?  Easter comes late this year, so you still have plenty of time to dig into your paper stash and pair up with the pretty ribbons from this month’s club assortment.  But you’d better get hopping!

Now go make something beautiful!

Prima Darcelle Hello Friendship Card Folio

Prima Darcelle Hello Friendship Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Prima Darcelle Hello Friendship Card Folio for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  If you are a fan of the color purple, I think you’re going to enjoy this Prima Darcelle Hello Friendship Card Folio.  This frilly, fancy card is all dressed up with luscious ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon February Club Assortment.  I’ve had such a good time with these pretty ribbons this month, and I had just enough of the Light Orchid Diamond Satin to make just one more poufy bow!

Purples can be  hard to match, so I used lots of different shades in this fancy card.

A bit of gold metallic string tucked into the bow cluster picks up on the gold foil accents in the flower centers,  paper and washi tape border.

A Peek Inside

I love to find ways to use ribbon inside my cards, too. Light Orchid  Swiss Dots Satin serves as a closure for the flap page on the top half of the card.  And look at all the yummy chocolate in the pocket!  

TIP:  To make the flap page, cut the patterned paper wider than the base of the card.  I added 3 1/4″ to the 5″ base so that I could add a sneaky hidden tea back pocket behind the flap.

Along with the chocolates, honey stick and post card in the pocket, I created this sweet bookmark.  (Yes…I am learning how to make my own tassels!  Woo-hoo!) Stitch bits and bobs of patterned paper onto a canvas rectangle, then fringe the canvas for a pretty homespun look.

How you do feel about purple?  I find myself liking this sophisticated, regal color more and more all the time.  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Stamperia Flower Alphabet Springtime Folio

The ribbon club is so lovely this month, that I had a hard time choosing which ribbons to work with.  A quick tour through my springtime papers revealed this gorgeous Flower Alphabet collection from Stamperia.  The daisy images were the perfect match for the ribbons in the club.

The folio measures 7″ x 7″ to accommodate the large images in the paper collection.

Dressing the front of the folio up with lace panels, creamy ivory florals, Reneabouquets Beautiful Board and those gorgeous Daisies on Green Satin Ribbon made for a pretty scene.  A Grape Taffeta Ribbon closure adds a pop of color and helps bring out the colors in the chipboard.

I just love the way all these elements work together.  It makes me feel like I’m looking out the window, watching spring unfold its beauty.

A Peek Inside

The inside of the folio has a slash pocket filled with pretty treasures, and a side pocket filled with tasty treats.

More Details

This little flap page has a side opening and a bottom opening.

There’s a secret message inside the flap.

And room for photos when you lift the front cover up.

The pretty center panel is a waterfall mechanism with a spring arbor hidden beneath.

TIP: Add strength and beauty to the album spine by wrapping it with 3/8″ Green and Purple Plaid Satin ribbon from the Club.
