Hello there ribbon lovers.  Today and I’m sharing another fun Kanzashi creation using ribbon and accessories from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


This would be great as a hair accessory for an adult by adding a French Clip or other clip of your choice.  It would also make a nice pin for a jacket or bag by adding a Pin Back.

I added a Metal Charm to the center and topped it off with a Flat Back Pearl Embellishment.  You can color any white pearl embellishment with Copic Markers or other alcohol inks.  No need to keep a variety of colors on hand.  Just make up the different colors as you need them.

This Kanzashi Creation was made with all 1-1/2″ Solid Grosgrain Ribbons using the petal variation in the video below.  While it looks very large in the photo, it only measures a little more than 3-1/4″ at the widest point.  It’s the perfect size for an understated hair clip.

For the top layer of tangerine petals on my project today, I used the technique to create different size petals using all 1-1/2″ ribbon squares.  You can find that video tutorial HERE.

I encourage you to give Kanzashi a try.  I bet you’ll be hooked!
