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!
