Christmas Mini Album for RRR

Hello to all our ribbon-loving friends.  I'm here today to share a mini album that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I'm sure you all know that Really Reasonable Ribbon carries the most wonderful ribbons, laces and trims you can imagine.  There's always something PERFECT to adorn all your projects and make them beautiful.  But did you also know that Really Reasonable Ribbon has several different Decorative Bags?  And that's not all......they're on clearance at FABULOUS prices.  Just take a look at what you can do with paper bags.
This album was made using one wine bag (yes, the long skinny bags you get when you buy a bottle of wine), one glassine bag, and one Chocolate Frosting Little Biddy Bag. Decorative Bags are perfect for making mini albums, and Really Reasonable Ribbon has the best prices on these sweet little bags, so it's a great time to stock up.  On the cover of my mini album, I used Bay Leaf Seam BindingDusty Olive Seam Binding, and Cream Seam Binding.
On the second page, I ran several lengths of Natural Burlap String around the page, and tied it into a bow where I added the holly berries and leaves.  I especially love all the great colors of Burlap String because it's very inexpensive, and it adds such a nice touch to your cards and projects.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries 15 beautiful colors of Burlap String.
The next page of my mini album doesn't have any ribbons on it (what a shame....LOL), but it's a glassine bag for tucking in photographs.  Because mini albums are so small, adding a Decorative Bag for photos is a great idea.
Next, I added a sweet Chocolate Frosting Little Bitty Bag with a tag tucked inside for journalling.  The tag has a piece of the Dusty Olive Seam Binding tied to it.  This makes the tag easy to pull out so that you can read the journalling (or, again tuck a photo inside).
On the last page of this sweet little paper bag mini album, I left a photo spot.  You will also see (from this and some of the other photos) that I attached a piece of the gorgeous 2 1/2" Cotton Blend Holiday Snowflake Ribbon.  I can't even begin to tell you all how CUTE this ribbon is.  I also love that, because it's cotton, you can easily rip it to give the edges that frayed look.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has lots of great wide ribbons like this which work great for tabs on mini albums.

You're sure to find LOTS of great ribbons, trims, laces, decorative bags, and SO much more at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Why not treat yourself today?  Also, we hope that you will stop by to play along in our current CHALLENGE taking place on the RRR Blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
