First up, a card.
I didn’t have a lot of time so I printed up a great digital image from Ephemera Vintage Garden. You can’t beat a digi image if you don’t have time to pull out all the stamping and coloring supplies!
I used Deconstructed Sketch #113 to create my card.
I used the Turftan Brown Diamond Satin and Multi Dots Pink and Brown on Ivory Grosgrain to wrap around the middle of the card and I made a double bow with the same Turftan Brown Diamond Satin Ribbon to top it off. I also wrapped a Pale Pink Large Wild Rose around the center of my bow.
Really Reasonable Ribbon now carries a large variety of mulberry paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I also made a couple of woven ribbon headbands with some of the printed grosgrain ribbon styles from the August assortment.
This headband is a Woven Ribbon Headband with a Twist. If you missed the tutorial last month, you can find it HERE. I used the Sweetheart Cherries Grosgrain Turftan Brown from the August Assortment and added two Solid Color Grosgrain Ribbon colors in Hot Pink and Pearl Pink.
Next is a Chevron Woven Ribbon Headband which uses the Multi Dots Pink and Brown on Ivory Grosgrain along with the Pink Stars on Turftan Brown Grosgrain.
You can find the tutorial for this headband HERE.
I would love for you to leave a comment before you go.
Hi everyone. Today I have a new headband variation for ya. Yup, I’m headband obsessed!!
Today I’m making Woven Ribbon Headbands with a Twist!!
Don’tcha just LOVE it??!!
Here is my tutorial:
My samples are made using 3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in a variety of colors. On a few of them I even used a print for an interesting effect. You can use 1, 2 or 3 ribbon colors/patterns for your headband, but if you use more than 3 you tend to lose the look of the twist. I used 3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon, but 3/8″ Satin Ribbon or even 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon would work as well.
The first four samples below are made using 3/4″ White Plastic Headbands and the bottom three are made with a 1/2″ White Plastic Headband. A one inch headband would also work fine, I just prefer the narrow widths.
