Back To School Link Party!

Welcome to our September Link Party!

This month we are celebrating Back To School!

Link up your crafts, whether it’s bows or clothes, anything!
Show us what you’ve made with product from The Ribbon Retreat.

Remember that the top five links will be featured so get your submissions in early!

Here is my Back To School bow.
I don’t have any girls, but I imagined what bow I would want to wear if I was still in elementary school. 🙂
I love this bow, and I love the ribbon I used!
I’ll be doing a tutorial next week.

Back To School Link Party - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

The Back To School Link Party will run until next Wednesday, September 7th.

Some tips:

If you do not have a blog or website to take photos from, the link system will allow you to add photos from a photo hosting website such as Photobucket or Flickr. Just click the middle tab when the pop up box comes up and add the URL for that photo.

Linking from Facebook will work as long as you take the “s” off of the https:// at the beginning of the link if you have one. Then you will need to choose a photo from your computer (the very right tab in the pop up window.) If it still doesn’t work, try taking off the http:// and just have the address start with the www. Let me know if this isn’t working for you. 🙂

The “Name” part can either be your name, or the name of your craft. Either one works!
I just wanted to let you know so you’re not like me and put your own name when you mean to have a name for the craft. 🙂

After you’ve linked up your craft, make sure your link works. If you are having troubles with it, send me an email at

    How are people getting them to post from FB? When I open a picture it doesn’t give me the linked page anymore, just their new photo viewing thing.

    Never mind. I figured it out. But now I have two links posted. Is there a way to edit my first one so I keep my same spot, or do I just have to delete and stay where I am now?

      Which bow is yours? Which numbers and I’ll see if I can edit the first one. 🙂

    I just love all the cute business names out there. And there is a lot of talent on this page. Great job to all!
