Part II: Ribbon Rosettes

Make these hair clips with velvet rosettes and crystal beads. After you make the rosette from the tutorial here, don't cut the thread. Instead pull the thread up through the top of the ribbon, then string on a bead. Next, bring the needle down through the ribbon. With the same thread sew the rosette onto the bobby pin tightly. I made about 4 loops around the bobby pin before knotting it. Last dab a little glue onto the pin and thread so the rosette does not slide down the hair clip. Done.

* Come back tomorrow for another rosette project.

These are such great little projects. I really like the earrings. I've seen rosettes done with ric rac at Martha Stewarts page. You run a stitch through the the top bump as you hold the ric rac.
