Really Reasonable Ribbon June Blog Hop

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

This month there is a fabulous assortment of blue, yellow, green and pink ribbons included in the June Ribbon Club.   This ribbon assortment is prefect for all of your fun summer projects!  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.

Here is the card that I designed using the Really Reasonable Ribbon June Ribbon Club.  I used the light blue satin ribbon with metallic silver edges and white crochet lace trim to create a shabby double loop ribbon flower and I have a tutorial to share with you on how to make the flower.

To start I cut a total of 14--2 inch long strips of ribbon.  Then I folded them in half to create a loop and added a dab of hot glue to hold in place.  Then I made two cuts in each piece of ribbon creating three loops.

I cut out a circle from cardstock to use as my base.  Then I started adding the ribbons.  As I added the ribbons I off set them to give the flower a fuller look.

Continue to add the ribbons until you have all 14 ribbon loops glued on.

Next I added some of the white crochet lace trim.  For the center I used a ribbon buckle and a light blue large flat back pearl.  Once the flower was done then I just fluffed it up with my fingers.  Doing this loosens up the fibers in the ribbon and gives it a shabby look.  I know a lot of ladies that make handmade flowers also like to use the eyelash trim and when the flowers are made this way the fibers almost give the appearance of the eyelash trim.  

For the embossed background I used S6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A die template and E3D-006 Framed Labels Eighteen and the Grand Calibur® Machine from Spellbinders Creative Arts®.  Then to assemble the card I used 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips - Refillable Dispenser - 49' from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.  The cardstock is Sweet Tooth and Sky Metallic from

I added some of the white crochet lace trim along the border at the bottom of the card.  Then I added  Lt Pink Roses, leaves and pearls and I brushed Diamond Stickles on to the roses for a little sparkle.

I used CR-04350 Special Gifts Label Twenty-Nine stamp set from  JustRite Papercraft for the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to create the shabby double loop ribbon flower!
