Pretty packages..











Hi there!  Tuesday is here and it is my day to share a tutorial with you for Really Reasonable Ribbon . Which also brings me to some news I get to share that I made the team at RRR for a second term!  So excited!    Anyways back to my tutorial.   I have seen such cute cards all tied up with ribbons that look like a wrapped present so I decided to try my own version.  
                                  The first pic shows the slit I made half way up the length of the card on the left side so that I could slide my horizontal ribbons through .  I just wrapped the gingham ribbon  through and glued it down.  That took care of my ribbon that runs side to side.  From there I wrapped the up and down ribbons all the way around (as shown in the pic)  and tied my bow.
    From there I had fun adding my embellishments and sentiment.   I added some  crochet lace to the bottom and used the sweetest christmas twine to tie my tag on.  Love that this card is really so simple but the ribbon really makes it special!   Hope you enjoy!  Hugs, cherry




ribbons used- emerald gingham , Penelope lace , Christmas twine
