Tags, Tags. Tags for Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge # 108
Hello, Friends! There’s a great new challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon BLOG. Due to the holidays, we’re only doing one challenge this month so you’ll want to be sure to play along in this Tags, Tags, Tags Challenge. You can find all the details on the RRR blog.
For my Tags, Tags, Tags challenge, I altered a Graphic 45 Book box using the gorgeous December ribbon club collection.
This Winter Wonderland Mix is filled with beautiful sparkly ribbon! Here’s the Tags, Tags, Tags altered book box I made using them.
I think I managed to use every ribbon in the assortment along with darling papers from the Authentique “Cozy” collection. I used Scor-Tape to secure a double layer of Gray Plaid Ribbon with pretty Light Blue and Silver Chevron Ribbon to form the closure for my book.
I stitched around all the edges of the paper before attaching them to the box.
Here’s the inside. The tags are bound together with ribbon and tucked inside the box opening.
When I was a girl growing up in Vermont, the town created an ice rink in a vacant field every winter. Families could go there to skate and grab a cup of hot chocolate from the little concession stand. I was never any good at skating, but I was really good at drinking cocoa! I was thinking about that ice rink when I added the Priscilla White Crochet Lace to the top and bottom of the box. I stitched in little snowflake sequins on the top, just for fun.
And here’s the tag book, adorned with lots of yummy ribbon!
My little banner is strung with Natural Jute String and I just love the texture it adds.
The spine of the box features this gorgeous Blue Satin Ribbon with a silver metallic edge. I strung it with a few blue and grey glass beads and added a snowflake charm.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired by this little altered book box and that you will join us over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog for our Tags, Tags, Tags challenge!

Hi Kathy, your projects make me feel like I am in a Winter Wonderland! Love the glitter, tinsel and snowflakes! I love the nostalgia feelings from these tags! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Christmas/Holidays” Challenge!

What a labor of crafty love!!! The box is wonderful and the inside and the tags and the banner and all the ribbon! You are amazing!
Gorgeous Kathy its Christmas all wrapped up in ribbons. Love all the tags, stitching, pockets and the colours are so icy. You are such a clever and inspiring lady. I’m afraid the only ice skating I’ve encountered is when I fell down a bank and smashed my wrist and arm and ended up with pins and plates. Love your stories though x
I know you haven’t heard from me for awhile. Been staying at Dad’s while work is being done in my home. Everything is going well…and I just love your frosty tag book! It’s so darling! Makes me want to go ice skating – I mean drink hot cocoa! You always bring a smile to my face when I read your postings! Love this sweet project!
You have nailed winter right on the head! Stay warm and cuddle. Perfect. Love this box with all it’s surprises. It is raining here in Victoria BC so am going to a friends house to try and make paper ornaments! This is the plan.
Love your work on this one, truly inspirational.
I think this is my all time favorite project of yours. It is ADORABLE. I love the blue and the sparkle and the snow people! And that ATC box is just perfect. I neeeed that ribbon pack! Oh my snowflakes, this is just too cute for words! I am grinning ear to ear in sheer joy at seeing this project this morning!
Oh My Snowflakes … this is AMAZING and absolutely gorgeous! You are just so darn clever! LOVE the entire project and just couldn’t wait to get to the next picture to see what else you had up your sleeve! WOW … this would have taken me a ‘month of Sunday’s’ to complete! LOVE all the snowy, beautiful details! Now if I can just squeeze a little more time out of my day I just might be able to create something close to this beautiful! Well done my friend … well done!
Oh kathy, It is really cold to day. Obviously getting old so receiving your e mail really brightened to day up. Thank you. Jen
