Introduction: Kanzashi Flower Bow!
Kanzashi Flower Bow!
I love bows, flowers and ribbon! But mostly, I love hot glue.
This flower is the perfect addition to any craft project.
Great for a ribbon bouquet, wreath, headband, purse or more!
Step 1: Supplies:
The sky is the limit with Kanzashi,
but here is what you will need for this flower:
(I used Offray Satin Ribbon)
Six 4" squares of white satin ribbon
Six 2 1/4" squares of azalea satin ribbon
Eight 2 1/4" squares of forest satin ribbon
Eight 1 1/2" squares of lemon grass satin ribbon
Rhinestone button or something fun for the center
Hot glue and gun
Felt circle for backing
Step 2: Making Petals
First, run a bead of hot glue along 2 of the edges like this.
I'd recommend a low heat glue gun.
Fold in half like a triangle.
Add glue to one of the open edges,
And fold in half again.
Repeat with all the pink ones,
Then put it inside the white and fold it one more time.
Then repeat 6 times.
Step 3: Making the Flower
Now, use scissors to cut the tip off the back, so it sits flat on the table.
Then use a lighter to melt the edges back there.
Repeat six times.
Then do the same thing with the green leaves.
Then either sew, or just hot glue all the pieces together to form a 6 petal flower.
Hot glue it to a felt circle to keep it's strength.
Then glue the leaves in place.
Add the rhinestone in the center and put it on a headband or clip!
Step 4: Make More and Enjoy!
Or make a whole bouquet!
Gorgeous and fun!
