DIY Kanzashi Video Tutorial – Create Petals in Different Sizes with 1-1/2″ Ribbon Squares

Hi friends.  I’m back today with some more Kanzashi video tutorials for different petal sizes using only 1-1/2″ width ribbon, some different ways to cut your ribbon squares and how to line a variety of clips.  I’m loving these beautiful flowers created with ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I hope you are too!

These pretty two layer kanzashi flowers were made with 1-1/2″ grosgrain or gingham squares. I will show you in the video below how to create petals in different sizes using all the same size ribbon squares. This saves you from having to have a supply of ribbon squares in different sizes.

The tweezers that I use in the video are Squadron Products Cross Action Curved Tweezer which I LOVE.  I highly recommend these tweezers as they are relatively inexpensive and they work so well  The Squadron Cross Action Straight Tweezer would work as well.

Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog Hop



Welcome to the July Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cheryl’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a beautiful collection of pinks and purples. 
Not a member yet?  JOIN TODAY!
This assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Members receive a new color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon each month.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
I created a lovely feminine birthday card mixing ribbons from the July Ribbon Club Assortment with some beautiful mulberry flowers.  Have you seen all the wonderful Mulberry Flower styles available at Really Reasonable Ribbon?  Head on over and take a look!
I created a beautiful bi-color double-loop bow on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using the two colors of Lattice Print Satin included in the July Ribbon Club assortment.  I just love this ribbon!  
For a video tutorial on how to create this bow, please click HERE.
I ran a strip of the Hyacinth Lattice Print Satin ribbon across the center of the card and I topped it with a strip of Wildflower Print Grosgrain Ribbon.  Then I added several sizes of Mulberry Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts around the bottom of the sentiment.  I love having a good selection of these flowers on hand to quickly add to any project.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has a HUGE offering of different styles of Mulberry Flowers.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
Now for my headband of the month…
This headband was created on a 1/2″ Plastic Headband base using two of the ribbon styles from the July Ribbon Club assortment.
For a video tutorial on how to create this headband, please click HERE.
The fabby flower that I attached to this headband is a basic Kanzashi flower.  
I just created a video tutorial for this flower which I will include below.  I will be back soon with a new Kanzashi petal variation.

New Summer Flowers Themed Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon & Kanzashi Flower Video Tutorial

It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
This time we have a Summer Flowers Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

I have been wanting to share some great Kanzashi designs with a video tutorial for ages and just never found time to make the video.  Well, I finally got one done.  I just love the beautiful creations that can be made once you learn a few petal variations, and below you will find my first video.  I hope you like it.
This is so much fun and there are so many beautiful variations just with color placement alone.  I’ll be back in the upcoming weeks with new samples and new petal variations.  I hope you will find this to be as much fun as I do!
The kanzashi flower today was made using 1-1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You can use any 100% polyester ribbon with the same results.  I have used Double-faced Satin Ribbon and 1-1/2″Gingham Ribbon with equally good results.  You will also find a large variety of Hair Clips and accessories on the Really Reasonable Ribbon website.

These creations can be added to any type of hair clip or lapel pin or can be used as embellishments for bags or whatever you like.  I can’t stop making them!
