Something Yummy With Really Reasonable Ribbon

Welcome by my blog today, everyone!  Today I'm sharing an extra sweet project I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I'm getting a little head start on my Valentine's Day projects.  I started with a very simple and inexpensive little glass jar.  I painted the lid with cream acrylic paint, added a sparkly gold die-cut to the top,  and filled the jar with some yummy red and white peppermint M&Ms.  Well, I couldn't stop there.  I pulled out some of my favorites from Really Reasonable Ribbon to make it extra special.
I added two bows tied with (my personal favorite) Lipstick Red Seam Binding, two bows tied with Gold Metallic String, and then I also added some Red and White Sweetheart Blossoms (Recently Restocked), and an 11mm White Heart-Shaped Flatback Immitation Pearl Accent.  The finishing touch is a tiny tag stamped with the word LOVE that's attached using a red heart stick pin.
I can't even begin to tell you just how many FABULOUS ribbons, laces, trims, flowers and embellishments you can find at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I really encourage you to do some shopping.  You will absolutely LOVE all their sweet products, and they'll help you create the most gorgeous projects.
There's also a fun challenge taking place on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and we'd love to have you play along.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed week.

I'm playing along here:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "New Something" - I used new ribbons, flowers and new jars I picked up at Target.

Dies R Us Challenge #64 - Anything Goes Using Dies - I used two dies, and they're both from Papertrey Ink.  One is the gold doily on the lid of the jar, and the other is the tiny heart-shaped tag stamped with the word "love".

Blessings,
Karen

  11. I also wanted to ask you, is there any way you can add a "Subscribe by email" option on your blog? I would love to be able to see every post you put up and leave ya some love... but unfortunately the only way I remember to check blogs is if they come straight to my email. I take a ton of medication and I have an issue with forgetting a lot. If you could add that option, I would be thrilled. I would love to keep up with you and see what beautiful projects you are creating.
    Hugs,
    Jo
