Our fun new challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon is called "Tag, You're It!", and we really hope that you will stop by to play along. These don't necessarily have to be Christmas tags. They can be any type of tags, a card with a tag (or tags) on it, a project with tags used in it, etc. As long as there is some sort of tag and some sort of ribbon, lace or trim, you're invited to play along. We always LOVE having everyone join us. There's LOTS of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, so be sure to stop by to check out our talented Design Team's samples, and then link up your projects.
I made a set of six Christmas tags. I simply traced patterned paper and backed that onto six manilla shipping tags. Then, I added LOTS of great Really Reasonable Ribbons on the tops of each tag. I also decorated a tiny little Decorative Bag for each one, and again placed lots of great Really Reasonable Ribbons on the fronts of those as well. There are SO many great ribbons and trims for ALL your projects.
I used several different ribbons, laces, and trims on my six tags and Decorative Bags. I will do my best to name them all. From left to right (in top photo), these are the trims I added: Tag #1 has Red Chevron Striped Twill, Metallic Gold String, and the front of the bag has 1.5" Olive Netting. Tag #2 has Juliet Natural Crochet Lace, Dusty Olive Seam Binding, and Metallic Gold String. The front has 1.5" Ivory Jute/Burlap Ribbon. Tag #3 includes Burlap Center Stitch Green Ribbon, Diva Palos Verdes Bakers Twine (Dark Green), and Lipstick Red Seam Binding. The front of that bag has Solid Red Baker's Twine and Edna Natural Crochet Lace. Tag #4 includes Diva Palos Verdes Baker's Twine (Dark Green), Solid Red Baker's Twine and Juliet Natural Crochet Lace. The front of that bag has the lovely 2" Cotton Blend White Ribbon and the silver bells are tied with the Diva Palos Verdes Baker's Twine (Dark Green) and also has a green leave taken from the sweet Moss Green Leaf Trim. Tag #5 is tied with Moss Green Seam Binding, and the bag has 1.5" Champagne Netting. Finally, Tag #6 has Lipstick Red Seam Binding, and the front of that Decorative Bag has the adorable 2.5" Cotton Blend Holiday Snowflake Ribbon, which is simply a must-have for the holidays!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I really look forward to seeing all the fabulous tag projects you will share with us, and I will be sure to stop by to take a peek at what you've created so that I can leave you a comment. I'd sure appreciate you leaving me some love as well. It's always SO nice to have you visit me.
Have a great week!
