How-To Create A Ribbon Pin

To create this ribbon pin you'll need a 2" scallop punch or a cricut. You'll also need some wide grosgrain ribbon, pearl paint, milepost stars, and shimmer brads.

1.  Punch your base.

 2. Paint on the pearl paint to make it shinny. Let dry completely.

3. Using some scrap strips (1" x 12") fold it to create ruffles but do it at an angle so as you continue it will naturally curve into a circle. You'll need to fold at least two. However you can do more and layer them.

4. Next add some re-inker to the pearl paint and paint your milepost stars. Allow to dry completely.

5. Put the ruffles on top the base with glue dots or liquid glass. Fold a 5" piece of ribbon in half and attach to the back with glue dots. Add the painted star on top and secure with a shimmer brad.
