Part III: How To Make a Ribbon Rosette Brooch

Here's the last project for the series, the Rosette Brooch.

Directions - make the rosette from the tutorial here. Instead of making two rosettes with each color ribbon, make one rosette using both colors (refer to picture below).

After you have the rosette made, place the button in the center of the rosette. Glue the back of the button and rosette to a pin like the picture below. Done.

*I used E6000 Glue for the pin. You can purchase this at most craft stores.
The pin back you can find at most craft and bead stores as well.

yep...gotta make this!! We are all going to go ribbons hunting tomorow, tks to you, I have locked up my kids gameboy and psp (hated them anyway)...and force them (and me too) to do some crafting. My kids spend way too much time on TV and me - too much time on blogging i guess :)

happy weekend :)

Thanks for these tutorials! I'm excited to make some. The length required is just right for some of my ribbons that are currently in awkward lengths.

Lady, you rock. These are cute. I was walking past a store in the mall. And they were selling these ribbon belts for $40. As if! The rosettes you showed are way cuter than the one they had. Can't wait to try it. Thanks!
