Christmas card with ribbon scraps - Grace

Friday, December 12, 2014

Hello there friends. Today I’d like to share a super easy card design that can be mass produced for your holiday greetings. It’s also a great way to use up ribbon scraps. 

Gather your supplies. I will show you on a different blog post where all my ribbon scraps came from but for now, you can see all sorts of widths and lengths of ribbon in the mix. This design is also very useful to use up tools such as embossing folder, die and glitter glue. 

Create your card base from whatever cardstock you prefer. I made mine from white cardstock to measure 4 ¼ x 5 ½”. I then cut a 4 x 5 ¼” piece of white cardstock and ran them through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss dot embossing folder.

Next, I used a gold shimmer cardstock to cut my Christmas tree die from. I ran it through my die cut machine twice to make that all of the detail cuts were made. 

After that, I assembled the card. I picked out a pattern paper with red and green strips on it as a border and laid out how I want my ribbon scraps to go under the pattern paper strip. I then cut notches on each one and adhered to a ¾” strip of pattern paper. 

I first adhered my embossed background onto the card then my red strip with ribbon scraps under it; Followed by the die cut Christmas tree. To add some more texture, I filled the star top of the die with glitter glue. 

Here are some more close ups of the cards….

 I hope this inspired you to add some ribbon scraps to your next project. Thank you for stopping by.

JOY Gingerbread Banner by Pinky

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Hey friends, 
it's Pinky again with another holiday craft idea using Ribbons Unlimited. 
This JOY Gingerbread banner is perfect to use RU Sheer Ribbon!
The sheer ribbon comes in all sizes too, you'll find the size for any project. 
 For this project I took a clear acrylic banner and decorated it using
a Snow Writer for the frosting and patterned paper.
 Then I added more glitter and patterned paper. 
 Then I tied it together using Ribbons Unlimited Sheer Ribbon in 1 1/2". 
After I tied it together I created 4 bows, and glued them onto the places I tied. 
If you add the bows after you tie it together then they won't twist and turn on the banner, 
they stay upright. Just a dab of hot glue to ensure placement!

This would be amazing on the tree, on the wall, or even as a photo prop!

Chalkboard Countdown Plate by Crystal

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Hello Ribbons Unlimited Inc. fans!
It's Crystal here and today I made a Pinterest inspired creation , it's a chalkboard plate and I am using ribbon from Ribbons Unlimited Inc , today I am using the 1 1/2" Polka Dot wired ribbon in Holiday Red with white dots and the 1 1/2" Luxor in Gold wired ribbon.


I used a gold charger plate and painted 3 coats of chalkboard paint with a sponge brush on the center , let dry completely in between coats , then rub chalk over to condition it. I cut my snowflake and letter out in vinyl using my silhouette  , i made a bow at the bottom and wrapped my chalk in ribbon and added a glue dot so you can pull it off to change the days , I added a plate stand to display it on . Don't you just love it , a great way to let the kiddos get involved and see the count down til the big man comes to visit ...
Thanks so much for stopping by , leave me some feed back if you loved this project ,
I love hearing from my scrappy computer friends who love getting crafty : )
