50 Ribbon Rosettes & Bows to Make
For Perfectly Wrapped Gifts, Gorgeous Hair Clips, Beautiful Corsages, and Decorative Fun!Book - 2014
"Among the world's first decorative items, ribbons were once reserved for the nobility, but spread to the middle classes by the 1800s. Braided, folded, and manipulated, ribbons were not only used as embellishments on outfits and hats, but also given alone as special gifts. There is something to please everyone, from moms to mavens. In this book you'll find 50 ways to play with ribbons--some classic, some whimsical, some elegant--with detailed instructions and stunning photos sure to inspire creativity for beginners to advanced crafters. The book includes three main sections: - THE BASICS of working with ribbon, plus an explanation of different types and the tools needed to create a professional look. - A VARIETY OF RIBBON PROJECTS: from twisted boutique hair bows, tuxedo bows and pinwheels to woven headbands, earrings, and tree trimmings. - "OVER THE TOP" PROJECTS combining different ribbon-crafting skills into stunning projects such as large layered hair bows, funky flip-flops, sashes, and ribbon flower arrangements"-- Provided by publisher.
