Instead of my usual button with twine I topped off this bow with additional flowers to balance the heavy arrangement at the bottom.Find Joy Every Day All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

There’s a strip of gold and white striped washi to coordinate with the butterflies. Vintage buttons are always the right answer.

So. Many. Flowers. Sisal and loopy bows made from twine are tucked in to fill in this generous arrangement.

Anything But a Card Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Standard

Hey there Peep! Well we are starting a new challenge at RRR and it’s a super fun theme this time “Anything But a Card with Ribbon.”  I mean you could make anything….but a card. The mind wobbles at the possibilities!!! I created a fancy little treat packaging that can be used again and again simply by adding a tasty goody and maybe a gift card to a small bag and punching holes to string the twine to attach it to the holder. I mean how great is that???

Vintage Children Treat Box 1

I thought to myself…..if you want to use it over and over why not make it pretty right? So I selected a vintagy image with sweet children and layered it with a lovely little die cut doily, flowers, lace, Brown Burlap String, metal embellishments and of course perfectly coordinated Burlap Ribbon.

Vintage Children Treat Box 2

From this angle you can see how much room it has inside for treats. The inside is finished with coordinating paper.

Vintage Children Treat Box 3

Petaloo flowers are perfect for this project with an almost fall inspiration.  The texture from the velvety flowers is just dreamy.

Vintage Children Treat Box 4

A few more blooms for the top along with string and a pretty metal key embellishment. You can see how easy it will be to add more gifties to this packaging simply untie the twine add a small bag of treats and retie.

Okay now it’s your turn to create a fabby project that’s Anything But a Card and link up with us to play along.

Standard

Hey there Peeps! We are starting a new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. This time the theme is Summer Flowers and Ribbon.  Pfft that’s an easy peasy challenge..summer flowers should be on everything!!!!

Life is Not Measured Tag 1

I had fun playing around with some resist techniques and inking for the base of this tag.

Life is Not Measured Tag 2This butterfly was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and added with curved wings to create dimension.

Life is Not Measured Tag 3

The scroll frame was die cut and a layer of lattice was added for texture. I added the stamped sentiment with a metal clip and attached the bow.

Life is Not Measured Tag 4

I used the markers to give a dreamy shade to the Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon. Life is Not Measured Tag 5
