I’ve been noticing these rosette ribbon badges around the Internet. In fact, I had to buy the book, Rosette Art, by Cathe Holden. Immediately I had to make a prize ribbon for someone. Luckily, a friend of mine is going to be celebrating her birthday in a week or so. I think I might put this on her office door and surprise her.
What I love about this craft, is that if you are like me, with LOTS of craft supplies, bits of this and that, this will help take care of that stash.
So let’s begin with a cardboard base. A cereal box would be perfect to cut a circle out of. I measured and cut 5″ pieces of pink ribbon, which I folded over and glued around the circle. I filled the spaces around with blue and green ribbons in the same manner.
I already have another idea for another friend of mine. These rosettes are reminders of the county fair First Place Ribbons. They are given to the best pie, the number one cow and the finest quilt. Hopefully, the people I make these rosettes for will know what special friends they are to me.
