5 simple projects created with the monthly Ribbon Club Kit

When I received the Ribbon Club Kit, I have to admit, I did not know what I was going to do with them.  But, as I was looking at them, trying to figure out what to do, inspiration hit and here is what I came up with:

Supplies:  Ribbon Club Kit (the monthly ribbon club kit includes 10 different 1-yd cuts of ribbons and trims which are usually color coordinated or themed in some way)
Project #1 – Card

Here I took an ordinary card and embellished. I took one ribbon and added it to the bottom part of the card and with the second ribbon, added it to the top.  I can leave the card as is or add more embellishments.  This is a fast easy way to decorate a card in a hurry when you don’t have a lot of time. (dresses up a plain card quickly)
Project #2 – Book Mark

a. Take a piece of colored cardstock and cut down to size to fit your ribbon.
b.  Glue ribbon to cardstock, punch a hole at the top and add ribbon.  Voila!  Another super fast, easy and fun project.  This would be a great project for kids.
Project #3 – Necklace

Want to add a little something to that plain old necklace you have laying around?
a. Take a piece of ribbon, and weave it through your necklace.
b.  Once you have woven through, knot the ends.

c.  Tie a bow.
Project 4 – Rose
a. Take your ribbon and fold one end over.
b.  Fold over again so that you have a point at the top.
c.  Take a needle and thread and start a running stitch through the ribbon.
d.  Gather and tack.  Continue to gather and tack the length of the ribbon
e.  When done, knot the thread to secure the ribbon.  A rose is born.
Project #5 – “Just for You” Plaque

a.  Take a piece of corrugated board and peel off part of the top layer so the ridges are exposed.  Add a bit of gesso and let dry.  Add some torn pages.  Punch holes at the top (optional)
b.  Add a piece of ribbon around the board and a tag.  Add decorative ribbon along the side.  top it all off with your rose.  Tie ribbon at the top for hanging.  Done!
All of the ribbon projects were fast, fun and easy.  Who knew you could have such fun with ribbon and be so creative at the same time. The monthly ribbon club kit gives you a variety of ribbons and trims each month – all with plenty of creative potential. Of course, you can just collect the beautiful ribbons and build your stash up. 🙂
Thanks Deborah for some great project ideas that are all easy to do, but also add that bit of extra special to a gift or card.

    Great ideas for using ribbons! I especially love the rose – this can be used to embellish so many things from artwork to clothing to barrettes to a vase of flowers to name a few!
