What to do with Ribbon Scrap Pieces Part 3

06 Mar

O for the love of Ribbon Scrap Pieces! How do I love them!  Like I have said in the other two blogs to this series of What to Do with Ribbon Scrap Pieces, we all have scraps and tons of them.  There is no need to waste 1 inch of ribbon.  Put it all to use and get the biggest bang for your buck.

Today, I am going to show you one of my favorite Ribbon Flowers to make.  Ther tutorial I will be referencing will show to use 12″ of ribbon.  You can vary this length to make any sized ribbon flower you would like.  You can and should make them with all sizes of ribbon: 1.5, 7/8, and even dantity little 3.8 ribbon scrap pieces. You can layer the different sized completed ribbon flowers for a unique look each time you are creating your ribbon flowers!  Throw in some buttons, resins, flat backs, bottlecaps, alta caps, and more for awesome out comes.

You can even kick it up a notch and mix these FAB ribbon flowers into mini top hats, on metal headbands, elastic headbands, lace headbands, belly bands, and more.  Mix in other flowers, feather plumes, pearls, rhinestone mesh, shabby chiffon trim and more for an over the top awesome end result and a one of a kind creation.

For the backing of the ribbon flowers to help secure them onto you attachment (alligator clips, headbands, etc) it helps tremendously to use 1″ felt circles.  You can find 1″ felt circles in tons of colors at the BNBW link below for only $.05 each!

Now on with the Show!
