Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Blog Hop!

Welcome to the celebration that has been months in the making!  And since it has been such a long road to get here, I’m ready to celebrate big!  And if you’re familiar with this Ribbon Lady’s work, you know that means a seriously big giveaway!   For an overview of our new features…and that promised $1000 giveaway, click here!


Now on to the matter of our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.  Because, hey…what’s a Grand Re-Opening without a proper Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!  Especially if you are an online ribbon store.  😉   So, to accomplish this, I turned to the very fabulous Ribbonistas for help.  Each designer interpreted ‘a ribbon cutting’ in their own way.  Some took it literally and some had other ideas, making this a truly fun hop!   So be sure to hop along today and tomorrow for some ribbony inspiration!

For today we have:

Mini Canvas

I did a more abstract interpretation of the theme.  Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies always mean a new beginning, a new chapter, a new adventure is beginning.  My project is titled “Adventure” and I chose to alter a mini canvas.

Congratulations Card
I created a pocket card, decked out with May Arts ribbons – and my tag, has a piece of ribbon with “Congratulations” stamped on it. Of course, this is congratulating May Arts Ribbon and Bethney, the Ribbon Lady, on such a fantastic new site! I interpreted “ribbon cutting” by cutting into a brand new roll of ribbon.

journal tags

For the ribbon cutting ceremony, I wanted to cut some ribbon! So I created these journaling tags/bookmarks with lots of fun cut ribbon! Ribbon is the perfect embellishment for all projects!

"Red Carpet" Card

I created a fancy card with some red foil paper and velvet to make it seem like the “Red” carpet 🙂

Altered Cabinet Door

I created this fun & useful chalkboard/key ring holder for just under $5.00 using a recycled cabinet door, her beloved May Arts Chevron Ribbon in teal,  favorite family photos, 1 piece of chalkboard cardstock, Adhesive and a little paint and coffee grounds!

Ribbon Cutting Card

My inspiration was when they have a big net of balloons and then let them all fly. I thought – why not make it look like you cut the ribbon, it rolled back, and wonky fabric balloons came out!? So that’s what I did! Super fun!

Any Occasion Card

I’ll show you how to use a rainbow of ribbon colors to create a great card set perfect for any occasion. Here is what I’ll be creating in the video over on my blog. These cards with this ribbon are instant wow! Enjoy.

Elegant Gift Set

Every ribbon cutting needs some special scissors, so when I found these elegant little shears, I knew they needed some equally elegant ribbons.  May Arts has so many gorgeous ribbons to choose from that narrowing it down to a few of my favorites was difficult..  I chose to celebrate the occasion in elegant vintage style.   You can find the before photos and close up details on my blog.

Champagne Tag

I decorated champagne bottle with a CAS tag to celebrate some bubbly, scissors and of course May Arts ribbon.
