Wired Ribbon Rose Tutorial by: True :D

True :D here!
Today I am going to show you how to make a quick and easy rose out of wired ribbon.
Don't laugh at the was my first attempt!
I will get better with practice...I hope! LOL!

You can use the rose on any project but I used an empty coffee can.

It can now be used for a gift box or a trinket tin. You could also do a new, full can as a sweet gift. Wouldn't that be a great disguise for instant coffee sitting on someone's desk?
It has a red lid so that kind of dictated my color scheme.
The red glitter paper was purchased at Hobby Lobby and is by Craft n Craftin. It is Wine Red glitter cardstock. The DP is a scrap piece that I can not remember who makes. If you recognize it, please let me know. I wanted to tie the rest of the can in with the rose so I added the same Wired Sheer Iridescent Red/Purple, and Moss Green organzas to the sides. Of course you know that the ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbons!
I ran them through some pearl ribbon slides. I also added a pearl hat pin to the rose so it can be worn as a corsage if the receiver so chooses.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.

  1. thanks for the video tutorial using these elegant ribbons and the results are sensational! i love videos as i am a visual learner and they often include a little hiccup in the creation that i might make on my own but if i see it happen and how the designer corrects it i feel more confident about trying the technique rather than give up in frustration!
