Really Reasonable Ribbon June Blog Hop

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

This month there is a wonderful assortment of Red, White & Blue ribbons included in the June 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 designed a mini wall hanging for the 4th of July.  I used four of the different ribbons included in the June Ribbon Club.
I wanted the wall hanging to have vintage look so I used a homemade vintage gold shimmer spray and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give the ribbons an aged look.

I started with a 7 x 7 Corrugated Board and I torn off most of the top layer of paper and then I painted the board white and sprayed it with homemade pearl shimmer spray.  Then I inked the edges of a couple paper doilies, sprayed them with homemade vintage gold shimmer spray and adhered them to the board.  Next I used S4-092 Stars Five die template from Spellbinders and Simply Smooth White, Really Red and Dusk Blue cardstock from Discount Cardstock to create the stars.  I scored and inked the stars to give them some dimension and then I added the ribbons.  

I added a pleated ribbon border across the bottom of the board.  

For the sentiment I used CR-03745 Summer Words from JustRite Papercraft.  I used S4-335 Star Circles and S4-116 Standard Circles Small to create the die cuts.

For a little bit of sparkle I added You're So Fine Glitter - Diamond Clear, Patriot Red, Canadian Blue from The Rubber Cafe.

Now to continue in the blog hop you need to hop on over to Patti's Blog and check out her fantastic project!
