This month I'm showcasing ribbon from August's Really Reasonable Ribbon Club Assortment. Here's a bit about the club:
If you really love ribbon and would like to have a wonderful assortment of ribbons sent to you automatically each month, just join the Really Reasonable Ribbon Club! Monthly ribbon club assortments are selected and pre-packed 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!
Here is August's assortment:
This month for my project I decided to alter a picture frame using craft supplies and ribbon.
First I took a gold frame and painted it white, I didn't paint it perfectly because I wanted it to look distressed. Then to add to the distressed look I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Martha Stewart Brown Ink around the raised edges.
I took some of my favorite October Afternoon patterned paper to use as my background and inked the edges of my paper with brown ink. I added a sticker. Then I stitched a ruffle ribbon on top of my picture. Next I made some pretty flowers using my assortment and added Jenni Bowlin Buttons. You can check out my tutorial on making ribbon flowers here.
Such fun and easy flowers. The ribbon club assortment matched my picture wonderfully!
