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!!

Pretty Kanzashi Ribbon Flower Project

Hi there ribbon lovers.  Today I’m sharing a quick and easy Kanzashi Flower project made with supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This is a relatively easy starter Kanzashi flower project if you’ve been itching to give it a try.  

I will provide two video tutorials below to help you along.

 

This flower was created with 1-1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon in Pearl Pink, Hot Pink and Apple Green along with a 14mm Flower Shape Acrylic Rhinestone and your choice of a Pin Back or a Hair Clip depending on how you want to wear it.  This would look fabulous on a jacket or as an embellishment for a bag as well as a hair clip.

The first video shows how to create the flower petals and the second video will show you how I created the size difference between the hot pink and pearl pink petals.
