When I think of ribbons, I also think of the word cute. I don't know why, I just do I guess :) So, how better to make simple, cute rings as with ribbon!! What I like about these rings is that they are so fast to make and can be made with stuff you have laying around anyway (at least, stuff that I have laying around).
I got the idea of these rings when I was making a memory wire bracelet with a set ( it contained everything needed to make a bracelet) I got for Christmas. The bag was closed using a ribbon- the black checkered one. So, I took my glue and my scissors and made the ring :) I'm really happy with how it turned out and surprised with how sturdy the glue makes the rings. I hope you like it as well!
Step 1: Materials
To make a ribbon ring, you will need the following:
- round object matching the size of your finger/mandrel
Step 2: Wrapping the ribbon
Start by putting your ribbon around your mandrel/round object. At the point where the ribbon meets itself, add glue and glue the ribbon as tight to the round object as possible. If you keep it tight to the round object, the glue will make the ring round when it has dried. Repeat putting a bit of glue (you can better use too much glue as not enough) and wrapping the ribbon further. How long you want to wrap it is your decision, just decide how thick you want your ring to be.
