Really Reasonable Ribbon: Make your own accessory kit
Hello, my dear crafty friends! Irit is here and this will be my last post as RRR guest designer for January. I already made cards, altered bag, box and even taught you how to make your own Bow Maker. So today I am going to show you simple and lovely projects that can be even made with kids (10 years old girls will love it a lot)
All you need is this gorgeous Swiss Dots Bright Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon kit, wooden spools- small and one medium, tacky double sided tape, some old beads and some jewelry bases.
Let's begin with a necklace.
This is what we call "tie a knot" beading and you need about 3 yards of the hemp – I used the thin one from Bamboo Cord Multi Weight Set as some of the beads have small holes only.
Fold your hemp to half and make a tie, then begin to add beads and make it totally random. Add one bead over double string and then add one on one string only, make another tie and so on. But now, as you can see, the most colorful part of this project is those covered with dotted ribbon wooden spools. The size on the small spools is just perfect for ribbon width in this collection. Use your Score tape to add small bits of ribbons and add more beads until the necklace is done. Tie the ends and your necklace us done.
Now for the hear clips. I used the pre- made wooden clips base, but you can make it from polymer clay, paper clay or use the old piece you already have. This time use stronger glue (kind of jewelry making one) and add 3 strips of our dotted ribbon over it. Now cover the big wooden spool with 3 different dotted ribbons (the size is just perfect for full 3 ribbons to cover it all) and glue the spool over the clips. Add the metal base with the same strong glue and your hear clips is done.
And as I still hade a lot of ribbons and some small spools I decided to make this dash pin using the metal base (ca be bought in every craft store)
I wrapped 2 small spools and glued them over the metal base (use strong glue) and then added a small bow over it for this fancy look.
So, as I said, even kids can do it, but please be careful with glues (those are not kid safe glues after all) and with a pin (just cover it with a cover before they begin).
