Each card becomes an individualized way to express yourself. Say you’re sorry, send best wishes for a special occasion, or just simply personalize the card just because you can.

When you add personalized ribbon to a card as an embellishment, it creates a 3D effect and makes everything stand out. Show your friends and family members that you really care by mixing in ribbons on your homemade greeting cards. Not only have you now created your own personalized cards, but you should still have plenty of the personalized ribbons to wrap any presents that coordinate with the card!

How To: Rosette Award Ribbon Wreaths

award ribbon wreath using rosette ribbons

During this early spring season, many shows are happening. And during these shows, many awards are given. Whether it’s for a prize animal, winning in a race or competition, or for a school or sporting event, all of these received awards deserve a special place to call home. There are many different ways of displaying these honors. This is a guide on how to make a rosette award ribbons wreath. These ribbon wreaths are not only easy to create, but they are also a fun way to show off several awards in one place. Follow these quick and easy steps to create your own wreath.

Step 1: Gather any rosette award ribbons that you will want on your wreath.

Gathering materials for rosette award ribbon wreathThe first step is to gather all your items together onto a flat work surface. Only four items are needed to create this one-of-a-kind decoration. You will need to find a wreath that will fit with your needs. We purchased a 14” grape vine wreath from a local craft store. You also need all the rosette award ribbons you want to attach to the wreath. Make sure that you are willing to trim these ribbons; you don’t want to trim streamers off ribbons that you might regret at a later time. Lastly, you need a hot glue gun with glue sticks and a pair of sharp scissors.

Step 2: Preparing your ribbons for the wreath.

trimming the streamers off the rosette ribbonsThe ribbon wreath that we created had two ribbons that we left the streamers on. You can have as few or as many as you would like. Take the ribbons that you want to leave the streamers on, and set them aside so you don’t accidentally trim the streamers. The remaining ribbons will need to have the streamers cut off. The best way to do this is to turn them over so you are looking at the back of the rosette. Trim each streamer as close to the backing as possible so that nothing will show underneath from the front side. Turn the rosette back over to make sure the streamers are not showing.

Step 3: Arranging the ribbon wreath.

arranging the ribbons in the correct placement before gluing them in placeOnce this is done for each rosette, arrange them however you would like on the wreath. Start with the rosettes you set aside with the streamers still attached and work around the wreath from that point. It is ideal to place the rosettes first before gluing them down to make sure you like the look as well as have enough room for each ribbon you want to incorporate onto the wreath. If you run out of room, consider leaving some of the ribbons out or try stacking or layering them. In our version, we wanted some of the wreath to show through, so we only used a handful of ribbons.

Step 4: Assembling the ribbon wreath.

finish the wreath by gluing the rosettes down with hot glueWhen you are completely satisfied with the look you have now created, start gluing each ribbon down. Use the hot glue to permanently set each ribbon into place. We found that by putting the glue directly onto the wreath’s surface, the rosettes stayed in place better. Once the last rosette has been firmly secured, the final step is locating the best place to hang your new treasure! Whether you’re creating this ribbon wreath for personal or professional use, have fun with it and make it something of which to be proud.

Holiday Ribbon: Mother’s Day & Father’s Day

While commercialism has successfully capitalized on Christmas, Halloween, Easter (especially with holiday ribbon) and many other holidays, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day have yet to really hit that commercial mark. They have, however, given us a good sense of gifts that we can give to those we love and call our parents.

Finding that Perfect Gift

These gifts have such a large variety to them that the sky is the limit. We are here to help you wrap them. Grab up a custom ribbon roll and personalize it with your message. It can be a plain “Have A Great Day” to save from the actual specification of the day or, print a recipient’s name on it. The best thing about continuous holiday ribbon rolls is that they never seem to end. Your creative mind is the only limit here. We have combined several ideas into our “Idea Gallery” on our website; here we only offer a few.

Find your mom that perfect flower bouquet and make it extra special by wrapping the stems or vase with your custom holiday ribbon roll. Or give her a single flower for that simple statement of “I Love you, Mom.” A box of chocolates will look great when wrapped in a pretty bow that has the words “Happy Mother’s Day” printed on it. There are many ways to use holiday ribbon rolls for Father’s Day as well. Use the holiday ribbon to make your father a special tie card, or wrap up a present with your specialized message of love.

Holiday Ribbon for the Win!

Whatever your choice, remember to get your order in soon so that it arrives well before these holidays! This way, when it comes time, you’ll be ready with that wonderful, personalized surprise for that perfect parent in your life.

Events, Meeting & Convention Planning

event planning, convention and meeting planningEvent planning is a marketing tool used by organizations of all sizes to communicate with current and potential clients. For many industries, nothing beats a hands-on experience created by personal interactions. Many large companies, organizations and individuals are now hiring event planners to take over planning and socializing for their events.

Event planning is the process of planning a festival, ceremony, competition, party, concert or convention. These events can range anywhere from a wedding to a small office meeting and anywhere in between. If not properly planned, any event could contain hitches and bumps along the way.

Generally speaking, there are two markets for event planning services: corporate and social. Corporations host trade shows, conventions, company picnics, meetings and holiday parties for employees, members or stockholders. Social events may include weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, parties, reunions and other events.

One of the first steps in succeeding as an event planner is finding a purpose or specialty. There are many different types of planners (wedding, large event, party, etc.), so finding a niche may just be the easiest task at hand.

There are many reasons to hire an event planner when planning an event or a party. Event planners coordinate all the necessary details of these events. And face it, event planning takes, well, planning. So, why not hire a professional? An experienced event planner should be able to bring anyone’s vision of an event out successfully.

To fully succeed, a good event planner must have a passion and an eye for detail. They also need drive and perseverance to stay in this competitive environment. Event planners play many roles during an event. Starting with the need to be a designer, they also need to be a leader, a problem solver, an innovator and a strategist. It is also important to have an appreciation for different cultures, religions and traditions.

Those seeking this line of work are encouraged to obtain a degree or certificate before starting in this vocation. Most experienced planners agree that jumping in head first is a bad idea as there is no foundation to stand on. Many encourage shadowing or volunteering with an experienced planner to develop the necessary rapport and tools.

Event planning is a highly competitive profession and anyone considering this line of work needs to show up with a loaded tool belt. This tool belt needs to come equipped with the ability and skill to determine not only a great and inviting theme, but also the ability to find vendors and suppliers to make any event come off without a hitch.

Effective communication is an important key to successfully researching, designing, planning and coordinating any special event. Event planning can be an overwhelming task if the correct tools are not readily available. It pays to know all available resources and will help when delegating responsibilities in advance.

Any time people gather together for a purpose, whether it’s for a conference, a formal dinner or a grand opening, someone is needed to manage all the event details to guarantee that it is a success. These details should also include any vendors such as caterers, photographers or speakers depending on the particular specialty.
