Anything But a Card Challenge at RRR

Welcome back by again, sweet blog friends.  Today I'm sharing a quick little project I put together for my sweet niece, Alexa.  I bought these fun little Cookies & Cream and Chocolate Peanut Butter flavored candy straws for drinking your milk, and I knew Alexa would enjoy these.  I love sending her little goodies to let her know how much I love and miss her.  Really Reasonable Ribbon helped me make it easy to bundle these straws together and tie a sweet bow to send them to her.
I tied a couple lengths of Baby Pink Seam Binding, some Lace Blue Seam Binding, a length of Ivory Burlap String. and a bow tied with Teal Baker's Twine.  I attached a pear-shaped rusty safety pin to attach a tag hanging from the Teal Baker's Twine where I hung a small tag with inked edges that bears Alexa's name.  I know she will quickly rip it open, and devour her treats.  LOL
I made this simple project to prove a point.  Anything But a Card is an easy and fun challenge.  You can decorate just about ANYTHING with ribbon.  Do some recycling, up-cycling, or just get creative.  Then, top it with some ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  And have the perfect entry for this fun new Anything  But a Card Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  We hope you will join us.

Have a great week,


  1. Karen, what a fun treat for your niece and I'm sure she will love how you personalized it.
