Anything Goes at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Welcome by today, everyone!  Today starts a brand new Anything Goes Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and we want YOU to come play along with us.  You can enter ANY project of any kind that uses ribbon or spooled trim of some sort (baker's twine, lace, jute, etc.).  I made a mini album out of two sweet glassine bags that I covered with patterned papers, machine stitched, and adorned with lots of great products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The cover of this album (above) has some machine stitched patterned papers, a Cheery Lynn Designs die-cut (Blessings), some washi tape, a chipboard butterfly, a ruffled piece of Cotton Blend ribbon, a Deep Pink Open End Rose (with the stems curled as antennas), and a tiny snippet of Juliet Natural Crochet Lace.  At the end of my tag, I have lots of Natural Burlap String tied into a bow.  I can't get enough of this product; and it's just ten cents per yard!
On the second page of my mini album (above), you can see the Natural Burlap String peeking through from the cover, and you can also see that I placed an adorable 12mm Colored Flatback Gingham Covered Button (in hot pink) on the back side of the tag from our Embellishments section.  You'll also see the Mulberry Paper Rose Leaves peeking through.
The third page has a photo tag and journalling spot, and two tags (one on the page, and one sticking out of the pocket).  The tag that's glued to the page is adorned with a bow made from 3/8" Moss Green Gingham and Ivory Burlap String.  SO sweet!
On Page 4, I added some lace and ric-rac; and you can also see the ribbons from the tag that's tucked into the flap in between this and the previous page.  That tag includes a piece of 5/8" Satin with Stitched Center in Robin's Egg, Green Center-Stitch Burlap, and Pink Canvas Color Band with Stitched Edge.  I just LOVE how all of Really Reasonable Ribbon's trims work together to compliment each other so well.  You really can't go wrong.  They're all fabulous!
The last page has no trims 😭 but I wanted to at least share it with you.  This page has a border at the top that's cut using Sweet Borders Sweet Cut, and the sentiment is from the Kindness Matters stamp set.  All of us at Really Reasonable Ribbon warmly invite you to stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and play along in this fun challenge.  We love your visits!
