Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop
Welcome! This is my very first Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop as part of the Special Events Design Team! I hope you enjoy the hop!
You should be coming to me from Dawn's Blog. If not, go back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and start the hop! (It's fun, trust me!)
I used the November Ribbon Club Assortment for my project.
You get approx. 10-15 yards of lovely ribbon in each club assortment! This assortment is filled with lovely gold and silver ribbons!
I used my ribbon to make this cute little gift bag. This bag is perfect for filling with treats for your neighbors or co-workers.
This project is simple enough to make in bulk. You could replace the colored image with a pre-made image to save even more time. (Or, you could color a stack of images at night while you watch your favorite TV program!)
I stamped and colored my image, then cut a small square of decorative paper in half to make a napkin for the basket. I used foam squares to pop the napkin up for dimension. I cut the entire image and mat with Spellbinders™ die templates. I also used one of the new Spellbinders Edgeabilities die templates to cut a decorative edge on the top of the bag.
I create all of my perfect bows with the Bow Easy tool! This little tool is worth every penny!
Now, keep on hopping! Go to Jan's Blog next!
