Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop: Using Up Ribbon Spools

RRRBlogHop
Hello friends!  This hop officially starts at 7:30 EST.   You should be arriving from Gloria’s blog.   If you get lost along the way, just hop over to Reasonable Ribbon.   Hope you’re in the mood to do some hopping and see some beautiful projects.  The Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team has been busy working with the “December Ribbon Club Assortment:  Winter Whites”.  For my Spool project, I used an empty cardboard ribbon spool and a vintage wooden thread spool.  I’ve used several Winter Whites to complete my spool.
rrr dec
The image and music paper are Kaisercraft and the sweet little polka dot kraft is paper bag that I cut a strip from to use on the base of the wooden spool.  These sweet paper bags come in a variety of patterns and are available at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This one is Middy Bitty Bag Kraft Polka Dot.  So, save those ribbon spools and make a beautiful Home Décor piece!  Your next stop will be Emily!
