Kanzashi Flower Inspiration with Video Tutorials

Hello ribbon lovers.  Today I’m sharing some more Kanzashi flowers to inspire you.  All the ribbon, embellishments and hair clips or pin backs can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
All the flowers were created with 1-1/2″ wide Grosgrain Ribbon.  I used a couple different Embellishments and RRR carries a large variety of embellishments that are the perfect size for flower centers, whether they are kanzashi flowers or paper flowers.
The first flower is in colors that would be perfect for autumn or winter and would be equally great as a brooch for a coat using a Pin Back or for a hair clip when you add the Hair Clip hardware of your choice.  The center of this flower uses a 14mm White Flower Shape Pearl Embellishment.
Both of the flowers are a mix of petal made following the video tutorials below.

Well, I love purple so of course one of the flowers I made is a pretty purple mix.  You just can’t go wrong with a purple and green color combination.  On the center layer of this one I made layered petals following the new folding technique above but I just used the one color.  It’s another interesting look.

The center embellishment on this one is one of my personal favorites.  It’s a 12mm Glass Bi-Color Wave Cabachon and it some in a pretty mix of colors.  Love Love Love!!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #169 – Anything Goes with Ribbon Theme

 
Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

This time we have an Anything Goes Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

I made this headband using a 3/4″ Plastic Headband and 3 yards of 3/8″ Random Autumn Leaves Grosgrain Ribbon and 1 yard of 3/8″ Kiwi Grosgrain Ribbon.  The kiwi green ribbon was positioned in the upper left side when beginning the weave to achieve this pattern.

I created a kanzashi flower using 1-1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon in tangerine and black and 1-1/2″ Gingham Ribbon in orange from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This will be worn as a Halloween pin, but it could also easily be a hair clip.
