Red and White Kanzashi Woven Ribbon Headband

Hi friends.  Today I have a pretty red and white woven ribbon headband with a kanzashi ribbon flower to share with you made with pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have Youtube tutorials to teach you how to make both items that I will share as well at the bottom of this post.

The woven ribbon headband was made using two of the ribbons in the January Ribbon Club Assortment.  It’s not too late to grab one of these gorgeous assortments.

This pretty assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
My kanzashi flower was made with 1-1/2″ wide Grosgrain Ribbon in white and red.  The center was finished off with a 12mm Flat Back Pearl.  The woven ribbon headband was created on a 1/2″ White Plastic Headband.
Below I will share the video tutorials for each part of the headband shown above.

DIY Kanzashi Ribbon Flower Petal #2 Video Tutorial

Today I have a NEW Kanzashi Petal option to teach you.  This is a petal with a rounded tip which I created with great ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You can create Kanzashi petals like these with Grosgrain, Satin or even Gingham squares just as long as the ribbon is 100% polyester.11-12-16-1 My samples today all feature Grosgrain Ribbon which is available in 60+ colors at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The third sample also includes a top layer done with Bright Pink Gingham Ribbon which adds a fun pattern texture.11-12-16-4

 The center embellishments on the Kanzashi Flowers are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well.  Be sure to check out the NEW Embellishments Section for a lot of fun options.

If you would like to purchase the cross action tweezers I use in the video, here are some links:  I used Squadron Cross Action Curved Tweezer.  The Squadron Cross Action Straight Tweezer would work as well.

I bet you can tell that I just LOVE these pretty 12mm Bi-Color Wave Cabachons.  I used them on two on my samples.  They’re my favorite!

DIY Kanzashi Ribbon Flower LAYERED Petal #1 Video Tutorial

Hi there.  I’m back today with a new Kanzashi video tutorial to take your basic petal #1 to the next level with fun ribbons and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

In my first sample below I have used both the regular Petal #1, the smaller version of petal #1 and a layered petal #1 and then finished off the center with a 12mm White Flat Back Pearl.10-31-16-1

The next sample below shows layered petals made with 1-1/2″ Bright Pink Gingham Ribbon and 1-1/2″ Hot Pink Grosgrain Ribbon.  The center was finished with a 16mm Candy Resin embellishment.

The yellow sample was made much the same way and I layered the green leaf petals as well.

** The cross-action tweezers that I talk about in the video are Squadron Products Cross Action Curved Tweezers.  While you can create Kanzashi petals without these tweezers, I find that they help me a lot.  The Squadron Cross Action Straight Tweezer would work as well.**

This pretty hair clip was made using 1-1/2″ Double Faced Satin Ribbon in red and white and the leaves are emerald grosgrain ribbon.  The center is a pretty 14mm Flower Shaped Rhinestone embellishment.  Perfect for Christmas!
