Ladybug Ribbons

Today we look at a detailed master class on making a ladybug from satin ribbons. This ladybug can be glued to either a children's wrap or a hairpin. This unusual accessory will perfectly complement any outfit of your little princess, and at the same time will look very unusual and quite original. Handmade jewelry in the modern world is considered quite valuable and unique. What do we take for this creation: • Red satin ribbon 5 cm wide, two meters;
• Black satin ribbon 5 cm wide, about 0.5 meters; • Lighter; • Sharp scissors; • Ruler; • Pencil; • Tweezers; • • Glue gun; • Thick cardboard for the base, short cut.

 we take for this creation
So, we start. We take a red satin ribbon and measure out from it equal squares measuring 5 by 5 cm.We should have 38-40 of them. Cut, now take a lighter and process the edges on each square so that the ribbon does not break.

With a lighter we process neatly sections of the petal. Unwrap carefully and straighten, we get this red petal.
Just like the red, we also make a black petal. Fold diagonally once.

Roast the cuts lighter, straighten the petal.
So do all the petals of the red and black squares. From the red mother-of-pearl cardboard cut an oval. We cut one side at the top, it will be the head of a ladybug.

Making the head of the ladybug. I made several layers of cotton discs, and then wrapped and sheathed black tape. You can also use a button or a finished half bead. Glue the head with a glue gun. Now we take the petals and couple them together in pairs, one can even glue together and three petals together.Now evenly spread the petals and glue the gun to the cardboard base.
 glue all petals
In each row we add one petal gradually. In the process, it becomes clear how many petals need to be added. In the center, lay out black petals. So completely glue all the petals and form a ladybug. It remains only to glue or a clip-clamp, or a hoop and a ladybug ready. If desired, you can add a little green petals in the form of a substrate, if allowed under the color of the attire. Thank you all and good luck!
