Baby Ribbons for Big Brothers and Big Sisters

Another project I wanted to complete before the baby was born are some pin-on ribbons to give the the new big sister and brother when they come to visit in hospital! Core’dinations cardstock was perfect as it’s sturdy enough for the project, as I *hope* to add these to their scrapbook albums eventually.

First up: for the big sister and of course it had to be pink!

Lots of layers! Some were punched, some were cut with my Cameo electonic cutting machine and the “ribbons” hanging down the bottom were simply handcut.

You can see I varied the textures, using some Jillian Dot embossed cardstock and for the heart, I couldn’t go past the subtle glitter of the Core Couture cardstock.

I used the heavy weight 110lb smooth white cardstock to print the labels and cut them into the banner shape.

And here is big brother’s.I kept to the same design but switched the colors:

Big-Brother-Ribbon-3-wm

You can see the dimension in the bottom layer in the close up photo below. For this I simply cut some strips and folded them before adhering them, alternating the colours.

I snapped this photo on quickly while I was assembling the ribbons, just to give you an idea of the different layers and how they all came together.

Finally, I adhered a pin back (bought from my local craft supply store) to the back of the ribbon so they can wear them proudly!
