There are so many causes out there that touch our lives. I have many that I like to support, and have long waited to finally have something to show my support in a way that give to others too.

So let me share my first sample using the  NEW! Ribbons of Support Collection!

Holding onto Hope

As you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. So in honor of that I created a gift set in Pink!

I Support You Template $5

Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

Completed Project Size:

2 1/2 Inches Deep

4 I/2 Inches Wide

8 1/2 Inches Long

I have long wanted to design a box to represent the Awareness Ribbons that we see everywhere. Awareness ribbons, due to their ubiquitous nature, have come to symbolize various concerns, and symbolize our support for a specific cause.

 The meaning behind the awareness ribbon depends on its color or colors. Many groups have adopted ribbons as symbols of support or awareness, and as a result, many causes often share each color.

Now I have created an amazing gift box, in the shape of those awareness ribbons, appropriately named I Support You, so you can create an amazing, heartfelt box, in the color of the cause you support, that may be near and dear to your heart!

The box top has an optional window panel. You can choose the standard oval, or use the heart shape.

I chose to use the heart window here for my project!

On the window of my I Support You box I printed the ribbon image and the sentiment “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot & hang on” from the Be Supportive set onto my acetate sheet. I so love the sentiment!! You can buy acetate that you can print on using your home printer at Staples, and other office store 😀 Works like a dream.

*As a added bonus* We have included a sheet of Pretty Printable Digital Paper named Cancer Cannot for FREE!

You can quickly and easily change the color on the font, to represent the color of your I Support You template, to suit your cause! Also check out our amazing set of sentiments called Be Supportive. It offers a variety of sentiments that help you say just the right words, to be supportive when someone special is going through a difficult time.

Please see our website for a list of colors and the cause they represent, to help you in choosing the appropriate color for the creation of your own “I Support You” gift box.

Now the Awareness Ribbon Card Cut File

This stunning Awareness Ribbon Card Cut File will help you send messages of love and support, or even thanks. No matter what the cause this ribbon card is sure to be an amazing showcase of support to anyone or their cause. Ribbon center cut outs include a oval and a heart.

I also used the Monograms Defined © set for the H is for HOPE sentiment. You can print any of the amazing sentiments from the Be Supportive set on the front or on the inside of this card!

Now it’s time for a ribbon color near and dear to my heart….

Orange: Leukemia/Pediatric Cancer Awareness

Many of you may know that my now 13 year old daughter had Leukemia at age 6. She is now celebrating 5 years of remission, which is a HUGE milestone! Words cannot even begin to describe the journey we’ve been on. I am truly grateful for every day that myself, my children and loved ones have their health. I don’t think things ever go back to bei

I wanted to create a gift idea for any child, going through a chemo, so I created this gift box, in orange, in honor of my own daughter!

The butterfly represents new beginnings, and to me, hope in the future. The butterfly is from the Bloom Builders © file. I cut a plain layer in the orange, then the cut out layer in black to appear similar to a Monarch butterfly. I added some glitter to it too.

I changed the color on the font of the paper that comes with the template *FREE* to match.

I chose to use the oval cut out on this one, to coordinate with the tag.

For the tag orange layer, I used the frame image from Homemade Holiday Sentiments set, which was cut out using the Homemade Holiday Labels cut file. It was a really nice, and simple accent to the template. The ribbon tied on the side was tied to look like the awareness ribbons.

The oval frame was created using the Sentimentally Yours set. I think this is a cheery sentiment, and I loved the addition of the flowers in the center. I used my Copic markers to hand color them.

I’m not yet sure WHO this will go to, or what I will put inside, but I am certain it will be appreciated by the family who is having a tough time.
I hope you find much inspiration in this special collection, as this collection of products is suitable for any cause near and dear to you, or someone you love! I’ve put much of my own experience into these sets, especially the sentiments in the Be Supportive set, as I have first hand gone through such a time, and know what I would have like to have heard, or said. My mom battled Lunch Cancer, almost 2 years ago, and this past March I lost my grandmother to Lunch Cancer as well. I think we’ve all been touched by some form of cancer, or have some cause that is near and dear to us. Whatever your cause may be, I hope you can give or receive the support you need!
See you tomorrow.
