Good morning blogging friends! Today, is the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop for the month of October. The RRR Design Team Members and Special Events Design Team Members will be showcasing the Monthly Ribbon Club.
For my project I designed some Christmas ornament tags to use for gift giving. The tags would be perfect with a bottle of wine, on packages or gift bags and you could also use them as ornaments for the tree. To create the tags I used Premium Craft Foils and the Spellbinders Christmas ornament dies--S5-116 2012 Heirloom Ornament, S4-334 2011 Heirloom Ornament, 2010 Heirloom Ornament (retired). I cut the ornament shapes and then I embossed each ornament using EL-014 Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities Folder. Next I lightly sanded the embossed area, doing this removed the top layer of colored paint to reveal the silver foil. I used a few different ribbons from the October Ribbon of the Month Club collection to embellish each of the ornaments.
For the first ornament I used the green ribbon and the white crochet lace trim. Then I added diamond stickles to the foil and some bling.
For the second ornament I used hot glue and create a ruffle look with the crochet lace trim, added the printed ribbon, stickles and bling.
For the last ornament tag (I think this one is my favorite!) I used a needle and thread to gather up some of the white crochet lace trim to create a rosette and then I added an Acrylic Ribbon Buckle and Large Flat Back Pearl to the center. I also added some of the red ribbon, stickles and bling.
I punched a small hole in the top of each ornament and added some white crochet thread for a hanger.
Now to continue in the blog hop you need to hop on over to Patti's Blog and check out her fantastic project!
I hope you have a wonderful and creative day!
Hugs & Smiles,
