Really Reasonable Ribbon/The Rubber Cafe Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon/The Rubber Cafe Blog Hop! If you've just happened by, you will want to start at the beginning (TRC Blog) to get in on all of the fun and a chance for some goodies along the way! If you've arrived from Gloria's blog, you are right on track!

For my project this week, I altered a cigar box and dressed it up a bit with some images from The Rubber Cafe.

~Bingo
~Paris Nights Background
~Vintage Treasures
~Ornamental Holiday


I'm a sucker for empty boxes and baskets....they just need to be purtified!!  This one was no exception.

I lined the box with some Creative Imaginations Banana Leaf paper and some Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.

To cover up the product information, I used some 7/8 inch wide Crochet Lace and laced it with some Banana Leaf paper strips.

The inside I wrapped with some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape to finish any uncovered areas.
To top off my project I created this beauty with some Rose Silk ribbon!
Your next stop along the way is Jan's blog.
