Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Hi Stampers,
Welcome to the February Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.  Sparkle N Sprinkle partnered with them and I am so happy to be participating.  If you have been following along, you should have hopped here from Donna Maligno's blog. If you haven't, please please please pop over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and hop along. The Design Team from Sparkle N Sprinkle and Really Reasonable Ribbon has created some amazing projects.
Every designer received this wonderful February Ribbon Kit, filled with the perfect trims and ribbons for those cheery Springtime projects. Lots of great pastels to match up with Sparkle N Sprinkle's amazingly beautiful glitters, flocking, stamps and embossing powders

For my project I was inspired at CHA from all the Prize Ribbons that were around...and I wanted to show off several of the beautiful ribbons I received.  I started with a strip of designer paper cut to 1 x 12" and scored it at every 1/4" and then fan folded it.  The make a circle out of it and press the center of it down on a 1 1/4 inch circle with lots of glue dots to hold it into place.  Next I embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment on a piece of blue cardstock with Hot Pink embossing powder, then punched it out with a 1" circle, layered it on a 1 1/4" circle of pink cardstock then on a Scalloped Circle of Sticker paper, then covered it with Sparkling Snow glitter.  Then I adhered all the beautiful ribbons on with red liner tape and assembled my layers.  It really wasn't as much work as I thought it would be and I love it.....My daughters birthday is coming up so I will use it for that!

Here is a closeup of the center.
Come back tomorrow for more creations that I made with the beautiful pack of ribbon I received!!

Now hop on over to Connie McCotter and see what amazing stuff she has to share with you!!

Happy Stamping,
Jill
