New Challenge Time at RRR (Really Reasonable Ribbon)

It's time for a new challenge over at "Really Reasonable Ribbon"! This time the theme is flowers and ribbon!!! You can check the  blog for all the details here: Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
The theme for Challenge #49 is Flowers & Ribbon. Create a card, layout, multi media piece, tag, ATC, hair bow, you name it. Just be sure to follow the theme above and use ribbon/lace or trim somewhere on your project.

Here is my layout for the challenge and a little tutorial for the Jute blooms.


My ribbon and trim are ALL from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I used the Bakers Twine Assortment on the little buttons. I used the Moss Jute on the blooms and the beautiful Fushia Wrinkled for the bow!

I used the gorgeous ManorHouse Creations blooms on this layout, along with some beautiful Anna Griffin papers and vellum quote stickers. I used the Lace Border strips by Anna also. You can find them all on HSN.

 I used the 1.5 inch Jute ribbon in Moss for this. I started with a 7" strip for each bloom.

I just held it between my thumb and pointing finger and gathered it, holding tightly in the middle.

I just secured it with a "t-pin".

Then I attached a green Manorhouse bloom in the center!!! Finished!!!!!

This was a simple little bloom to make, and you can gets lots of different looks with the different colors of Jute at RRR! And the Manorhouse blooms are just perfect, there is such a wide range of colors and sizes!!!

Thanks for stopping by and please go over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog and check the other DT projects and check out the challenge, we'd love to see your creations!
