Bless This Nest Greeting Card

Spring is in the air friends. Not here..but somewhere I'm sure it's warm and the birds are singing.  We're still at freezing temps and snow on the ground so I'm making my own spring by creating with this lovely nature inspired paper collection.
 Of course this has inspired me to load up the card with gorgeous flowers.
Lucky for me RRR has just the right ribbons and twine for every project I make and this is no exception.
The Celery Green Chevron Twill is one of my favorites for coordinating with florals.
I've added this little arrangement over altered chipboard to bulk it up and I think the flourish is a perfect addition.
More chipboard for the top of the focal image...this time finished in white to enhance the doily. It adds so much texture!!!
A few fussy cut stamps and a wooden clip finish off this card.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Hello friends, and welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today as I (Karen Letchworth) share a quick little card with you all that I created using some more of my favorites from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop.  I started with some green cardstock and added some coordinating patterned papers attaching them with strips of Scor-Tape.  Next, I added a couple of glittery feathers.  Well, we all know that I couldn't stop there.....and, as always, I knew I had the perfect Really Reasonable Ribbon products for this card.
I added two different sizes of the lovely Wild Orchid Crafts Green/White Mulberry Leaves, and then added some Gold Double-Head Stamens, White Double-Head Stamens, Baby Pink Double-Head Stamens, and Aqua Green Double-Head Stamens.  Have I mentioned how much I LOVE these sweet little accents?  Double Head Flower Stamens are a must-have item at just $1.99 per bundle of 160 pieces.
I also added a pretty bow tied with Bay Leaf Seam Binding, Baby Pink Seam Binding and Gold Metallic String.  Finally, I placed some sweet Pink Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms and some Miniature Mint Sweetheart Blossoms here and there.  These are such adorable little Mulberry Flowers for tucking in here and there.....and everywhere.  You're sure to find something AMAZING in the RRR shop, and I encourage you to treat yourself to something new.

Happy crafting!

Hippety Hoppity Here Comes the Easter Bunny!

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Here in North Carolina, the grass is getting green, the trees are starting to bud, and the daffodils are poking up out of the ground.  Spring is definitely on the way, and you know that means the Easter Bunny will be here soon!  Time to break out our March Ribbon Club Assortment and make beautiful springtime projects!

This is my very first Easter card of 2018.  Don't you just love these sweet little Easter Bunnies?  I've dressed this card up with Turquoise Shimmer Satin Ribbon from the March Ribbon Club Assortment.  This assortment is perfect for springtime crafting!   I've topped it off with a loopy Ivory Burlap String Bow and a flower from my stash.

I've tucked a bunch of little Easter treats into pockets on the inside of the card.

The upper pocket has this sweet little tag and a mini envelope filled with a tiny wrapped chocolate.

The bottom pocket has this cutie patootie tea bag wallet and honey stick inside.  I've dressed up the honey stick with a double loop bow tied with Green Flash Diamond Satin Ribbon.

I hope I've shared some ribbon tips and tricks that you can use in your own Easter crafting. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Miniature Easter Baskets

Hello friends! Linsey here today sharing these fun and unique little baskets made completely from RRR Burlap String. These were easier than I expected and they turned out so cute! I hope you like them too!
I used a plastic bottle cap as the mold to make my baskets. I used Light Blue Burlap String and Ivory Burlap String with glue to make my 2 mini baskets. The fibers and consistency of the burlap works perfectly to create a very realistic basket feel. Let dry completely and then carefully remove from bottle cap and you have your basket shape. Then, just add a little handle and attach to each inner side with a tiny dot of glue. Embellish as desired. I added a tiny wooden flower to the fronts and a bit of green "grass" by cutting up Parrot Green Burlap String.  I love anything miniature, so these were really fun to make! I hope you like them too! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy crafting

For the Cherry Nelson

Hello paper peeps!!!  Cherry here at the RRR Blog.  This post is literally for the birds or about the birds.  Either way they are the perfect harkener to spring.

First a sweet tag with a dimensional house that I assembled and trimmed down to fit my tag. 
I covered it in papers and gave it a white wash effect with a chalkboard pen and a bit of Gesso.
 I used Baby Pink Stamens and both my projects used Baby Pink Seam Binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 I have been enjoying the combination of pinks and yellows.  Such a sweet color combo in my opinion.
 My next project is an altered egg carton.  This would be so sweet to fill with chocolates as an Easter gift for a friend, child, or hostess.
 With March here...spring really should be in the air...but Oregon literally just seemed to get around to winter. 

Hope you enjoy!!!  Thanks for visiting the RRR blog today!  Cherry
