Paper crafting?

I love ribbons.  One of the reasons is that I have to mail most of my cards and ribbons add a lot of touch to a card without adding a lot of bulk! 

Ribbons can do a lot.  I like to use them to make a rosette!  Today I'm sharing this ponytail holder that I made out of ribbon:

I know a little girl that loves hair accessories (well, a big girl like me loves hair accessories too! lol) so I've made her a ponytail holder.  It was made up of retired Close to My Heart Sweet Leaf ribbon, a Sweet Leaf button and retired Bohemian assortment embellishments, and of course, a scunci.  The little girl has dark hair so I'd use a black one.

This accessory is entering the challenge at Heart 2 Heart challenge - Go Green. 

Isn't it cool to use our paper crafting supplies to make non-paper products?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. LOVE this...I'm a "big girl" that likes hair accessories too! Thanks for playing along and going "green" with H2H this week!

  2. Joyce, that is too cute. I love the use of the ribbon as a rosette with a little bling from the button. Love it!

  3. Oh, I love it, Joyce! Wonderful idea for that grosgrain ribbon! :)

  4. So cute! Thanks for playing with us at H2H!

  5. So cute! I made the exact same rosette on a card this weekend, but never thought to make a hair accessory. My daughter would love that. How did you attach the buttons and elastic? I had a hole in the center of mine. Did I just need to pull it tighter? I'm not a good sewer. :) - Keri B.

    1. Hi Keri,
      Yup! Pull it as tight as possible. I like to run stitches to secure the buttons and cover the hole. You may also want to try hot glue. No worries if you are not a good sewer. I can't sew either. :) It is a cute gift for a girl. I'm sure your daughter will love it!

  6. So cute! I am going to have to make one of these for my granddaughter. Thanks for sharing this with us at H2H.
