Hi, it’s Kendra here with a wonderful idea for a special occasion. With our oldest daughter heading off to college and getting her very first apartment, I thought it would be kind of special to make her a house warming ribbon to hang.
The quote I used is an Irish house toast. It says…
“May joy and peace surround you, contentment latch your door; And happiness be with you now, and bless you evermore.”
I can’t wait to send it to her. I think she will love it! It was very easy to make and took less than an hour to make.
You are going to sew a ruffle using the Ruched Ruffle Pink ribbon. Just create small pleats evenly along one edge and sew it with your machine or by hand.
Using the Fabri-Tac adhesive you will glue the ruffled ruche ribbon to the back of a white circle that was cut out using the circle die. I chose the largest circle. You will then attach the jumbo leaves going around the circle once in each direction so your leaves come from different directions. I also chose to fold some of the extra leaves to the outside securing them with the Fabri-Tac just so the circle was not completely symmetrical.
Using the Fabri-Tac, secure a piece of the ruched ribbon to the burlap down the center and cut your ends in a nice V. Use a piece of ribbon to hold the base ribbon in place in the middle as shown.
Fabri-Tac is used to attach the Circle to the ribbon base.
Press the circle firmly onto the ribbon base.
This is what the front of your circle will look like. I used a brown fabric marker to write a message on the circle for our daughter Abby. 2 ribbon rosettes were created for the front of the circle and you can find a tutorial to create those here!
I hope I have inspired you to stop and create your own ribbon for someone. What kinds of occasions can you think of to create a ribbon? I can’t wait to hear your ideas!
