Really Reasonable Ribbon "June" Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon "June" Blog Hop! If you just happened to be visiting, visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to get started. And if you're already taking part in the hop, you should have arrived from Gini's super blog.

Today I would like to share a few creations I made using the RRR June Ribbon Club assortment. Take a look at the beautiful ribbons for this month:



I was swooning when I received this package in the mail! The greens and yellows are perfect for Summer projects! Monthly ribbon club assortments are selected and pre-packaged to reflect a specific theme, color, or holiday season. The assortments vary from month to month, but an average assortment has 5-8 different ribbon styles and consists of 10-15 yards of ribbon. The total price of each monthly assortment is $9.00 and includes the shipping/handling fee too! This is a deal you don't want to miss!

Now for my projects. I adore pincushions. I think they are the cutest thing since flip flops. So I decided to use some scrap fabric, a baby food jar, buttons, and ribbon to make a pincushion. I found the tutorial at Craft Pudding, check it out for the details.



Isn't it the cutest. My main goal was to find fabric with a little green so everything would coordinate with my ribbon.

Next up a card:



I love the sentiment "Creative People Are Seldom Tidy." My Papaw recently visited and said my craft room looked like a tornado had been thru it. Does that mean I'm creative??? Or just messy!
