Introduction: How to Make a Strawberry Clippie

Picture of How to Make a Strawberry Clippie

First choose your ribbon color.
I chose a red-pink'ish that has a satin'y sheen to it.
3/8" wide.
I dont measure anything. So, PLEASE dont ask!! I DUNNO!! I just 'do 'em

Step 1:

Picture of

make a small loop, and add a dot of glue to secure.
BE CAREFUL!!
HOT GLUE CAN AND WILL BURN!!!
I dont want to be the reason for your ER visit tonight!

Step 2:

Picture of

keep wrapping to make loops, and secure with that dot of glue EACH time, in the SAME place!
Again, BE CAREFUL!!!
Dont make me mention the ER again.

Step 3:

Picture of

Make as many loops as you desire. This one has 5.
Dont worry about that sloppy glue look. *this* is the BACK of your berry!
What? Don't see the 'berry'?
hmm. let's fix that.

Step 4:

Picture of

Take the berry, and SQUEEEEEZE the bottom, and turn it upside down to make this shape.
you have to pinch REALLLLY hard!
That's right.
Let that berry HAVE IT!

SQUISH HIM!

Step 5:

Picture of

Told you it would look like a strawberry!!!

Next, get a piece of coordinating green ribbon for the 'leaves'. Cut notches on the ends for a 'V', and SEAL THEM!
Either with a lighter (not too close!!)
OR, Fray Check. (this is what I used)
same thing. just stays wet a little longer. and I figured this berry's been through enuf.
poor thing.

Step 6:

Picture of

There's that 'V' on the ends. See them?

Ok, glue the 'leaves' right smack in the middle.
easy.

Step 7:

Picture of

Take summore of that green ribbon, put a TINY amount of glue in the middle, and glue it together as shown.
NOT ALL THE WAY DOWN!!!!

Open up the ends of it, and glue it (CAREFULLY!!!) to the top of the berry on the 'leaves'....

Step 8:

Step 9:

Picture of

OK.
Here is Berry. In all his berry gloriness.
Cute, isn't it?

Step 10:

Next, find MORE coordinating ribbon to line your aligator clippie.

Oh, did you flip that berry over yet? Remember what I said about the ugly glued up side!
whatever. Just use the 'pretty' side ....

Step 11:

Picture of

Let's line that puppy.
Partially lined, or fully lined.
I dont care. It's up to you.

Step 12:

Picture of

NOW, put a TINY dab of HOT GLUE (its HOT! remember that!!!!) on the BACK (ugly) side of Berry.
And QUICKLY glue it in place on your lined clippie!!!

oooh, im excited!

Step 13:

Picture of

Here it is all glued up!

Now, time for some glamour shots ....
