Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Welcome to a great post today as I am part of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Blog Hop!!

You should have come to me from the super talented Bonnie and if you didn't be sure to go back to the beginning at Really Reasonable Ribbon so that you don't miss any of the wonderful creations from the team!
The talented team are showcasing the fabulous ribbons in this months Ribbon Club Selection and there are some fabulous items for you to see.



I decided to make something a little different with my ribbons, just in time for the Christmas decorating!

Challenges:
Christmas Stampin All Year Long - Anything Goes Christmas
Robyn's Fetish - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Forever Friends - Ribbon/Twine
Anything But a Card - Anything But a Card
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Dream Valley - Anything Goes (3 entries only)




Project Recipe:
Foam Tree Base - Flora Craft from Hobby Lobby
Ribbons - Ribbon Club Selection
Roses - Recollections
Gift - Michaels






Although it was time consuming it was a pretty simple project. I simply cut the ribbons into 3" lengths and formed each one into a loop. Depending on the width of the ribbon I either stapled or hot glued the ends to form the loop. Then alternating the colors in layers I hot glued on the loops all the way up the tree. Once it was all covered (it took the whole selection of ribbons!) I added roses and a mini gift from a floral pick that I bought in the after Christmas sale last year.
So I hope you enjoyed this and now it's time to HOP ON OVER to see what fabulous creation that Cheryl made for your delight!
Happy Hopping!!
Katie
