Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog Hop!

Hello friends and happy Sunday! It's the 13th and that means it's time for our RRR July blog hop,
hooray! If you are already hopping, you are probably still drooling over the incredible project you saw over at Jenn's Blog!! If not, I would definitely head over to the RRR Blog  and start there! If you don't hop, you can't win this fabulous July Ribbon Club Assortment the RRR designers are showcasing!!! You wouldn't want to miss out on that chance now, right?! Right!
I absolutely love the pink, purple and green dragonfly printed grosgrain from the July assortment! It seemed to be a perfectly sweet finishing touch on my jars of plum jam!
Here's another simple way to pretty up your jars--cover the lid with a nice white (or any color) doily and secure the rim. Easy and charming, don't you think? : )

I still had tons of ribbon left after making my jam so I perused Pinterest and came upon this delightful ribbon tree technique that tickled my fancy. The bright, cheerful colors and patterns of July's ribbon assortment remind me of a candy shop and since everyone seems to be doing Christmas in July, I made a fun little ribbon tree with a cute sequin garland and sweet treat tree topper! I'm entering my ribbon tree into Robyn's Fetish Challenge #220- Christmas In July!
Thanks so much for visiting me today! Next stop on the RRR hop is the lovely and ultra
talented Cheryl!

Both projects are beautiful! Love those jars of jam! Who wouldn't love that for a gift? Your tree is awesome too. Might have to try that this winter since we are downsizing and I won't have near the space as I've had before for holiday decorating.
