Time to open that new package…lets cut the ribbon and get this party started!

When I think of Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies I always envision a celebration, so I wanted to create some party looking elements in May Arts honor! Recently Virginia had shared a friend’s blog that had created bicycle streamers & I thought this was a perfect occasion to make some too! I was having so much fun combining ribbon for the celebration I decided to make a ribbon wand too! My daughter & I put the streamers on her bike & they look beautiful as she rides down the street- and our rainbow ribbon wand is so festive! Now I need to make some streamers for MY bike! 🙂

Head over to my blog for the details on the ribbons I used! 🙂


Party Banner

Evey party needs a banner and when it’s a May Arts party that banner is made up of awesome ribbon.  Here’s a celebratory, all natural banner made up of my favorite May Arts ribbon in burlap.

Ribbon Cutting

My kids are so excited to have a new playhouse to hang out in, and they want you to come see too! Now that we’ve had a ribbon cutting ceremony, the playhouse is officially open for fun times and shenanigans!  Join us and have a peek at all the fabulous May Arts Ribbon details inside, you won’t want to leave!


Mixed Media Frame

Hello, I’m Rhea and I am pleased to share my love for the warm soft colors of vintage and  the romance of flowers.  As well as my passion for my Copic Markers.  When I can mix metals with the soft airbrushed ribbons it brings amazing results.  Coloring an image with my Copics makes it even better.


Halloween Bag

Turn an inexpensive tote into a boutique-style treat bag!  I purchased the orange tote and felt bat from Michael’s for less than $4.  Following the binding on the side of the bag, I glued on strips of grosgrain ribbon and added large buttons to the top.  To tie in with the bat motif, a single row of bat trim was glued to the bottom.  After attaching the felt bat to the center of the bag, I outlined the piece with black/white baker’s twine.  A pretty bow topped with a sweet embellishment and the treat bag is complete!


Ribbon Flowers

Hello ribbon lovers! It’s Sandy here, retired Prima Ribbonista (but never done playing with ribbon!) For the ribbon cutting ceremony, I decided to “cut” a lot of ribbon – and make a lot of flower petals! It’s a quick and easy way to make a petal, then you’re free to pair them up as you like for your project – fewer petals with larger ribbon, more small petals with tiny ribbon….and bling up the centers as much as you’d like! Visit my blog to see them all in more detail.   See the video here!



Ribbon Cutting Layout

When I heard Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, I immediately thought of big red bows being cut right in half, trimmed edges and straight up strips of ribbon. So I set out to commemorate our first home as a family with these things in mind. Needless to say the work took me in a slightly different direction, but never the less RED and RIBBON are still recognizable! I layered up some gorgeous ribbons ( 447-1-01 | 336-38-14 | SM08 ) to embellish this layout.
