St. Louis Regional Workshop Wow

This past weekend, I had the privilege of presenting a project to my fellow demonstrators at the St. Louis regional seminar.  I only had a few days to prepare and boy, was I nervous!  Fortunately, I survived and no one threw rotten fruit at me.  :0)

I'll just warn you now…..this post is picture heavy!  If you would like to see a video tutorial on this technique, leave me a comment below and I'll get to work on it if there is enough interest.

To make the rosettes, I cut white felt with the Big Shot and Circle #2 Die.  I tied a knot in the end of the ribbon/fabric and adhered it to the center of a felt circle with hot glue.  Working slowly, twist the ribbon/fabric and roll around the knot, adhering with hot glue as you go.  When finished, trim any of the white felt that might still be showing and adhere the "tail" of the ribbon/fabric to the back of the felt circle with hot glue.  Add embellishments and enjoy!

This rosette was created with the 1-1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon in Basic Gray/Basic Black from the Spring Catalog.

Rhinestones were added to the center and scattered along the edges.

This cute rosette can also be clipped into hair or onto your favorite handbag.
Bibnecklace

I am absolutely in love with vintage-looking bib necklaces. 

BibcuFor this necklace, I used both of the 1-1/4" ribbons, pearls, antique brads, and designer builder brads.

Headband

You can use the same technique with fabric….just cut your fabric into 1-1/2" wide strips.

Hairclippie

The leaves were created by cutting the Canvas Creations sheet with the fun flowers die.  I sponged Lucky Limeade ink onto the flower, added lines with a Lucky Limeade marker, and cut the flower petals apart to create leaves.

Here is a view of the back of the hair clip. 

Babyheadband

I created this headband for an infant with 3 of the smaller rosettes.

 

I was very excited to see that the fabric was going to be on sale this week.  Now you have the perfect excuse to stock up!

    Hi Melissa, these are great and would LOVE a video tut on how to make them. I think I’m in love with the fabric ones more than the ribbon, more shabby chic I think 🙂
