Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop! You should be coming to my blog from Bonnie's Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.) After visiting me, hop over to the spectacular Ginny's Blog next!

At the end of the hop, comment on the RRR Blog post, answering the question listed, for a chance to win the September Ribbon Club Assortment shown below. (The Design Team appreciates your comments, too!)

The September Ribbon Club Assortment is called Halloween Assortment. I love that there is a green and a purple ribbon selection this time! (I didn't use them, but...I like them so much! And, no,I am NOT hoarding them!)
I thought it would be fun to make another 6x6 home decor canvas (panel) with this month's ribbon club! I have made a few of these in the past and they are super fun to make, and look cute on my entryway table. {smile} 
I used Authentique Twilight papers, which are NEW and cute, and oh, so vintage!
I wrapped a 6" x 6" piece of thick chipboard with the polka dot paper from the 8x8 Twilight paper pad. Wrapping chipboard or canvas with the paper gives a nice, finished edge.
I flipped the Black Satin Swiss Dots ribbon over to revel the back, which is just a plain, matte black. I then wrapped the ribbon around the canvas as if wrapping a package. I topped the black satin ribbon with the Halloween Candy on Tangerine Grosgrain ribbon. It looks like the candy grosgrain has a black border. This is a fun way to customize your available ribbon.

I trimmed a piece of 6x6 paper to cover the back of the panel to hide the messy bits.

I matted the image, cut from the Twilight 12x12 Eight paper, with black cardstock. I then wrapped a 4 3/8" x 3 3/8" piece of chipboard with the pumpkin  paper and attached the image to the chipboard, then glued the image to the main panel. I added a little sticker sentiment to the lower right corner of the image, and another to the center left edge.
 I used a paper doily to tuck under the image. I rubbed the doily shape with some gray ink to make it look a bit dingy.
I created bows with the Black Satin Swiss Dots ribbon and the Tangerine Satin with Grosgrain Edge ribbon. I glued the bows to the top left corner of the canvas, then added some paper flowers and other embellishments to the bow.
Thanks for looking! Now, hop over to Ginny's Blog to see what she has for you!

  3. The 6" by 6" panel is too darn cute! I love how you used the ribbon!

  4. Gloria, I love how you wrapped your chipboard like a present. It frames your focal image perfectly. Beautiful card! Love that Authentique collection. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Pretty bow treatment for this cute Halloween card.

  6. Interesting way you arranged your bow with the flowers. I hope you don't mind if I copy this style.

  7. Authentique is my favorite paper line, and this doesn't disappoint either, although I don't have it! This is a great idea for a decor piece instead of a card.
