Coffee Bag Treat With Ribbons

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a sweet little gift-giving idea with all of you.  I used LOTS of great ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon on this project to make it over-the-edge beautiful!  Here's how I did it:
I started with a Coffee Bag (they're very inexpensive) and put some Tutti Fruti Jelly Bellies inside it.  Once I folded the bag closed, it was cute.  But I knew Really Reasonable Ribbon could help me make it even cuter!  I added a small scrap of Crate Paper patterned paper, some Crate Paper tags, vellum, and chipboard, and a PTI felt heart border.  It was starting to come together, but........I just KNEW it needed an amazing bow.
I added two lengths of Cream Seam Binding, one length of Pink Aster Seam Binding, a piece of Metallic Gold String, and topped it with a button that was strung with Cotton Candy Baker's Twine.  Then.....I added even more ribbon!  Behind the bow, I added a small piece of 2 1/2" Cotton Blend Vintage Pink Floral Ribbon, a snippet of 3/8" Light Pink Gingham Ribbon, and a snippet of Burlap Pink Center Stitch Ribbon.
I tried to take a close-up of the bow so that you could see all those gorgeous ribbons up close and personal.  They're each fabulous alone; but together, they look SO sweet.  As I've said so many times, that's one of the biggest things I LOVE about Really Reasonable Ribbon, and that's how well all the different ribbons and trims work together so beautifully.

Thanks again for stopping by today.  I hope this project inspired you buy yourself some new ribbons and trims to decorate your next gift-giving project.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has everything you need to adorn your next project beautifully.  We also hope that you will stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for inspiration each day, and to participate in our CURRENT CHALLENGE taking place now.
