A Red, White and Blue Day

Good morning everyone!
I am so excited to be here as a guest designer for Really Reasonable Ribbon !
I am excited to share with you Really Reasonable Ribbons June Ribbon Club Assortment.
With this being Memorial Day weekend and just 6 short weeks until the 4th of July it is the perfect time to grab the red, white and blue begin creating!
First I want to share a altered canvas that would be perfect to decorate any room with a little Americana flair.
I used ribbon around the edge and on the front to decorate this canvas.

You can see here in the close up how I layer this fantastic ribbon!

Next I altered a tin can….yes that is right a can that would have gone in the garbage.
I am going to fill my little altered can with red, white and blue flowers for the table on the fourth….what will you do with yours?

and last but by no means least I made this wonderful ribbon…..perfect to put a pinback on to wear on the 4th or attach to a basket to enjoy ALL the time.

For all of my projects today I used Best Creations Inc. I {heart} America paper line.

It went fantastic with the wonderful June Ribbon Assortment!
