Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop - March Ribbon Club


Good morning blogging friends! Today, is the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop for the month of February. The RRR Design Team Members and Special Event Design Team Members will be showcasing the Monthly Ribbon Club.

This month there is a beautiful assortment of Light Green & Coral ribbons included in the March Ribbon Club Click HERE for more details.

If you are following the order of the blog hop you should have just come from Bonnie's Blog. If not and you just happened to pop in for a visit please click HERE to start the blog hop at the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings! Blog.


For my project I altered a little keepsake box using several of the ribbons from the March Ribbon Club Assortment. I used the sparkly coral ribbon around the outer edges of the box and then I made a decorative bow using the same ribbon. I layered a couple piece of pattern paper from the Follow Your Heart Be Happy Collection from My Mind's Eye. I ♥ this paper collection!! I also used one of the Be Happy Transparency Frames on top of the pattern papers.

I used one of the Be Happy Chipboard Elements for a banner at the top and then I added ribbon tails on each end and embellished with a few tiny Ivory Pearls. I also used some pieces of the green ribbon with a heavy string to create little pennants for another banner and then I added a pearl to the center of each pennant.


Here is another view so you can see the bow at the top.


To create the bow I cut a total of five pieces with three different lengths.


Next I glued the ends to create little loops and then I layered the ribbon loops to create the bow.


To create the dress and dress form I used S5-088 Sewing Elements to cut/emboss the die cut and then I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Next I layered and glued three piece of ribbon on top of the dress form to create a dress. To finish off the dress I added a piece of Noelle Crochet Lace Trim.


Here is a close up of the dress form and dress. I also added a little pearl necklace.


I added a couple of clusters of flowers to two of the corners. The coral colored roses were made using S5-086 Bitty Blossoms die templates and the Distrezz-it-All and then I added Diamond Clear Glitter. All of the other flowers and leaves are from I am Roses.


Here is a close up of the bird house charm. I used S5-033 Bird Sanctuary die template, shrink plastic, Scrap Happy Sheer Glue and Bronze Medal Glitter to create the sparkling charm. Then I added some pearls and jewelry findings.


This is how the box opens up.



I had so much fun creating this little keepsake box and finding some different and creative ways to use the ribbons.
