• Welcome back to RibbonBazaar.com’s weekly DIY webseries.
• In this first episode of a three-part series showing how to make a bridal bouquet totally decked out with satin flowers and tulle accents, we’ll work on making the little satin flowers that will decorate the bouquet.
• We’ll be making use of White and Tornado Blue inch and a half satin ribbon, some corsage pins, a lighter to fuse the ribbon ends, a ruler to measure out and cut 12 and a half inch strips of the satin, and a needle with blue thread.
• We’ll start by taking one of the strips of satin ribbon, folding it and pushing through a corsage pin diagonally as shown to hold the fold in place.
• We then continue folding and setting corsage pins in place, once for each corner, forming a square.
• Once complete, we cut the excess and fuse the edges closed using the lighter.
• We now do a bit of needling around the outside edge as shown and take off the pins as we go around each corner.
• Once complete, we pull on the thread until the square is scrunched into a small ball and knot the beginning and end of the thread as shown, cutting the excess.
• We can now open it up to see the lovely little flower we’ve just crafted!

• Welcome back to RibbonBazaar.com’s weekly DIY webseries.
• This week we’re going to make another lovely hair bow that can double as a cheer bow.
• We’re going to use some 3 inch solid black grosgrain ribbon and some black and white 2 and a quarter inch grosgrain ribbon with a zebra pattern for the bow’s body.
• A bit of jewel ribbon will help add flair to the bow.
• We’ll start by putting two lines of hot glue to the solid grosgrain ribbon.
• We then take the zebra-patterned grosgrain and place it on top, pressing it in place.
• Once set, we turn each end of the ribbon in so that it forms a loop as shown, gluing it together.
• Now, like last time, we simply scrunch together the center and tie it in place with a bit of 1/8″ double faced satin ribbon, cutting the excess.
• Next, we cut two lines of jewel ribbon as shown, and place two lines of hot glue on each edge of a bit of solid black grosgrain ribbon.
• We then press the lines of jewels onto each edge, letting them set in place.
• Once complete, we put some more hot glue on the center of the bow and then roll the bejeweled grosgrain around the center, finishing off with some more hot glue.
• Finally, we put a bunch of glue on the back and press the hair clip in place as shown.
• And there you have it!
