Today is my day to share a tutorial for Really Reasonable Ribbon. I created an easy to follow process of turning simple paper lunch bags into sturdy little albums without all the complicated measuring and folding. And these great minis have pockets built right in for your pictures tags and mementos : )
First I’ll share a sneak peek at the finished album…
As you can see….I’ve added lot’s and lot’s of embellishments to the cover including pretty patterned papers, painted inked and Stickled chipboard, loads of flowers ( I crocheted the ivory ones myself : ) ) brads, buttons and pearls. I choose to finish off the metal rings with beautiful Cream Mesh Ribbon, Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon, and Diamond Satin Shell Gray and I think they coordinate beautifully : )
I added a pretty little vintage button over this faux bow of Diamond Satin Shell Gray trim and crocheted lace.
If one button is good…then 5 should be better right????? lol This yummy trim is Sheer Box Pleats in Ivory.
Okay….now for the tutorial….there are lot’s of pictures here…but trust me it’s super easy!
See…told ya it was easy : ) You’ll want to keep this tutorial handy for creating quick wedding or baby shower gifts….or make them for yourself : ) They are super sturdy after adding all the paper layers and you can tie on all your favorite Really Reasonable Ribbon Trims to add the perfect finishing touch : )
Okay that’s it for my tutorial. I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : )G
Quick update…..Someone brought it to my attention that I forgot to give the measurement for the coordinating paper for the pocket….ooops. The strip os 2 1/4 inches x 6 inches. : )
