One-Hour Challenge: Ribbon Banners

Hi there! Jen Shears here from May Arts, and I'm playing with ribbon in this challenge. The banner craze is still in full swing, and ribbon is the perfect material to make them! With so many colors, patterns, widths and textures, you are limited only by your imagination.

The Fair by Jen Shears for May Arts Ribbon and Creating Keepsakes. May Arts ribbon used: ¼" turquoise grosgrain/picot edge, yellow baker's twine, 1.5" organic cotton stripe, ¾" twill stripes, ½"solid wrinkle, 1.5" butterscotch/ivory grosgrain stipe, yellow woven burlap.

In this layout I've added a ribbon banner hung on baker's twine to underline the title. I simply folded the ribbon down over the baker's twine and glued the top to the back of the ribbon.

To create the pennant border on the other page, I used small pieces of many different ribbons, cutting each one in a banner shape. It's as easy as folding the ribbon in half and cutting a V shape at the end.

Here's what all that ribbon looks like under the pictures. I placed the ribbons where I liked them and carefully sewed them in place. I love the way you can layer lots of ribbon without adding much bulk!

So there you have it: two ways to make ribbon banners. I'm looking forward to seeing which inspires you!

I found this link by looking at "who's on-line" I.E. fellow peeps...

I'm not seeing any link on the Club CK Blog or This Weeks Happenings?  Am I missing something?

Well I missed the hour because I had to upload my photos, make my post and then realized I was not a member here so I had to sign up first - LOL  With as passionate as I am about scrapbooking how is it that I did not join this site sooner?  Anyway, here is my layout ejoym.blogspot.com/.../dotty-for-you-layout.html

We'll extend the deadline for the one-hour to two because of the delay. Thanks for your patience!

I turned the banner into a full circle wreath. So fun working with my ribbon stash for a change.
