Good morning blogging friends! Today, is the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop for the month of January. The RRR Design Team Members and Special Events Design Team Members will be showcasing the Monthly Ribbon Club.
This month there is a beautiful assortment of Pastel ribbons included in the February Ribbon Club. This is such a pretty combination for Spring and Easter cards. Click HERE for more details on how you can sign up for the Monthly Ribbon Club.
If you are following the order of the blog hop you should have just come from Judy'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 used some of the ribbons from the Febuary Ribbon of the Month Club to design a ribbon bookmark and matching card.
To start I cut about 10 inches of both of the ribbons and then layered and glued the ribbons together usinf Fabri-Tac. This adhesive is great for a project like this because it is permanent but it doesn't make the ribbon stiff and it dries clear.
Next I added two clasps to the ribbon ends and used E6000 adhesive for a little extra hold.
Then I stamped and inked a MB6-011 Birds One blank using StazOn inks and a flower image from CR-03850 Just Because Vintage Labels stamp set. I will have a step-by-step tutorial on February 15th to show you how I used the inks to decorate the bird blank. I also added some beads and a charm.
For the matching card I used cardstock from DiscountCardstock.com and all of the inks are from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko. For the sentiment I used SW-04420 For All You Do Vintage Labels Three stamp set from JustRite Papercraft and S4-392 Framed Tags One die template from Spellbinders. To create the embossed background I used ES-011 Dotted Flowers M-Bossabilities Folder.
I made a ribbon border in the center of the card using two of the ribbon and one of the crochet trims from the Febuary Ribbon of the Month Club.
The bookmark and card were both quick and easy projects and they would make a nice little gift. Also making bookmarks with ribbon is a great way to use up some of your longer scrap pieces.
