DIY Kanzashi Ribbon Flower LAYERED Petal #1 Video Tutorial

Hi there.  I'm back today with a new Kanzashi video tutorial to take your basic petal #1 to the next level with fun ribbons and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

In my first sample below I have used both the regular Petal #1, the smaller version of petal #1 and a layered petal #1 and then finished off the center with a 12mm White Flat Back Pearl.

The next sample below shows layered petals made with 1-1/2" Bright Pink Gingham Ribbon and 1-1/2" Hot Pink Grosgrain Ribbon.  The center was finished with a 16mm Candy Resin embellishment.

The yellow sample was made much the same way and I layered the green leaf petals as well.

Gauze Mason Jar With Ribbons

Thanks for stopping by today!  It's Karen here, and it's my turn to share something fun with you all today.  Since tomorrow is finally Halloween, I thought I'd take this final opportunity (for the year) to share one last Halloween treat using lots of sweet Really Reasonable Ribbon trims.
I covered a $0.99 mason jar with gauze by wrapping it around the jar several times.  I added a Spellbinders spider web die-cut, a piece of ephemera, and a Jolee's ghost.  I painted the top of the jar black, put a chalkboard jar topper on it, and wrapped a length of Orange & Black Plaid Ribbon With Black Stitching, and then decorated the top/side with LOTS of great Really Reasonable Ribbon favorites.
This big beautiful bow includes a knot tied from the gauze, as well as a length of Orange Seam Binding, Black Seam Binding,and Ivory Burlap String.  I also added a cute and creepy little snake, and a black button that's also tied with Ivory Burlap String.
We're so glad you stopped by today.  There's lots of great inspiration here on the RRR Blog most every day.  We also have a FUN CHALLENGE taking place now, and there's always something new popping up in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop, so be sure to visit and find out what's new.   Have a happy and creative week!

Christmas Hair Accessories

Hi all,

Today is my last post for Really Reasonable Ribbon. I am so sad to be leaving such a wonderful team. I feel so honored to have been a part of Bonnie's team and to have worked with her for the past 6 months.I have learned so much from Bonnie and the team. I truly have loved every minute of it and loved working with such beautiful ribbons from her store. Thank you Bonnie for having me on your team, I've had so much fun!

For my last post I made a few items with the beautiful ribbons from this months Ribbon Club Assortment - Traditional Christmas Mix. I seriously had a hard time deciding on what to make. lol
I made several different hair accessories with this beautiful assortment. I used Bonnie's tutorial again to make the hairband and I made a baby hair clip and a regular hair clip. Of course I am giving a couple to my granddaughter and one to my great neice Sophia, who was just born.

Here are the items I used to make all my Hair Accessories, you can find all these at
Headband, Rectangular clips, and Round Head Snap Clips

Here is a photo showing all the items using the 

 For this headband I used Bonnie's tutorial showing you how to use ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon to create these awesome headbands. I added a bow on top of the headband with a little red flower embellishment. 

Here is a close up of the little red flower embellishment. 
These are new in the store and they are so so cute. I totally love these
little embellishment. They are 10mm Resin Flower with Rhinestone Flatback
Cabochons. I have the multi colored pack that comes with red, white and other colors.

Here is a photo of the two hair clips I created using October ribbon club assortment -
Traditional Christmas Mix. These ribbons are truly beautiful bright greens and reds for
Christmas, they are just gorgeous. I coldn't help but add the cute little flowers in the middle. 
These little flowers are just so cute. Great addition to any project. 

Here is the back of the first hairclip using the 2 3/8 inch round head snap clip.
I only glued the ribbon on the top of the clip and at the ends of the bottom of the clip, as I didn't 
want it to have an affect on the opening and closing of the clip. I created a triple layered bow with my Bow it All, bow maker. I then double layered my bows, last I glued the little acrylic flower on top of the bow.  

A close up of the side of the 2nd hair clip, showing how I glued the ribbon onto the Rectangular clip with teeth.  These little hair clips are just perfect to make baby hair clips. 


Thank you all so much for stopping by today I so appreciate it. I hope you are inspired to use some of these items. I just love using the ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  They are just gorgeous, and the flowers are just beautiful. Check out the items I used plus other wonderful items at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.  As I sign off for the last time with Really Reasonable Ribbon I would like say again, Thank you Bonnie for inviting me on your team and all your support. 

Hugs and wishing you all a great crafty day,

Quick & Easy Dog Bow Tutorial on the Zutter Bow-it-All V3.0

Hi friends.  Today I have a fun video tutorial on creating quick and easy dog bows on the Zutter Bow-it-All V3.0 with fun ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My little friend Daisy is modeling for me today.

The bows today were made with ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon October Ribbon Club Assortment which is a Traditional Christmas ribbon mix.  This assortment is perfect for all your Christmas crafts.
Not a member yet?
The October Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  Each monthly ribbon assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbons.

Daisy is sporting a pretty double loop bow in her top knot that was quickly made on the Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool and the rubber band is incorporated right in the bow knot to save time.

The Little Things

{judy} We have had two months of absolutely beautiful fall temperatures and colors. I hope it lasts through Thanksgiving!
My trims and embelllishment are from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. I chose 1/4" Turquoise Twill ( all Solid Twill colors are 50% off through October 31!) for the middle of my card and top of my tag. I wrapped the twill around the middle panel, secured with 1/4" Scor-Tape, and stapled the tag top with a cute matching blue staple. In the bottom right corner is a Vintage Glass Cabachon. Take a look at this collection! I love all of the different patterns!

There are many new embellishments in the RRR Store that you may not have seen yet! They are wonderful additions to your cardmaking!
Stamps and dies by Reverse Confetti. 
I love how this turned out! Thanks for taking a peek!

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Hello Ribbon Lovers!  Have you started working on your Christmas cards yet?  I got totally inspired to get mine going when I received the Traditional Christmas Mix in this month's Ribbon Club Assortment. To my absolute delight, these ribbons are the perfect playmates for Graphic 45's Saint Nicholas collection.

Just look at how yummy this Bold Red Check Plaid ribbon is with these pretty papers!  

My Zutter Bow it All Tool is my extra set of hands whenever I need to tie a big poufy bow.  This one is topped with Natural Jute String and a pretty floral pick.

Inside, I created a little treat pocket that's just the right size for a mini chocolate or two.

I'm curious...when do you start making your Christmas cards?  I'm usually a last minute kind of gal, but I'm trying to do better this year.  I'll keep you posted on how that goes!  

Thanks for stopping by!

A Merry Christmas Hello!

Hello there RRR fans!  Cherry here to share a project.  I have had plenty of time to create lately.  The weather has been horrific.  So inside I stay.  One of my favorite things to create are little plaques, signs...anything I can alter.  This one has oodles of cuteness.
I used acrylic rhinestones and bead berry sprays in red to adorn my layered goodies. 

Just love all that sugary goodness.   Don't you?

  To hang my plaque I wound shimmer satin in poppy red through the plaque and made my bows.
I just love this.....I am sure because of the red and gingham!  Hope you enjoy, Cherry

Heart Shaped Candy Tins

 Hello everyone,
Today's Heart shaped candy tins were made for a Doll Conference & for Really Reasonable Ribbon. I made these last month to take to Montana to give to the peeps at our table, and used all the Beautiful supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon. LOVE all the new embellishments, and you can find those here. I also used Sweetheart Blossoms, and Ribbons :)

I made 8 Pink tins -
using the Delicate Stitched Pearl Pink Satin Ribbon I also used some tulle, and then 3 different colors of Seam binding. All can be found here at RRR . I also used some of the sweetheart Blossoms and those can be found here. I also used some of Really Reasonable Ribbons NEW Embellishments- Flower Shaped Flatback Pearls , 11mm Pearl Daisy Flower Beads , Resin Flowers with Rhinestones. . I also used some of the new Leaves :)

Blue Tin-
I used the same flowers, and embellishments as listed above, the only difference is, I used blue and white. Now for the Ribbon I chose the Shimmer Satin in Blue Topaz, for my bow.

I really had so much fun making these, and they are all a little different in layout. The Heart shaped tins I have had for years! I picked up a bunch of these at Big Lots and knew one day they would come in handy!

Thank you for looking an have a lovely day!
hugs to all,

Inspired Bird Mixed Media Greeting Card

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a greeting card I made with loads of mixed media supplies and a digital image from my shop. The bird in the images was the inspiration for the card. The bright feathers and flowers steered me towards choosing lighter colors with not too much contrast so as not to be too busy. Instead I'm using texture to create detail.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies~ Robin's Egg Satin w/Center Stitch, Spiral Stamens, Ivory Burlap String.
Okay that's all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G
