Ribbon Rose Earrings

with Gwen Studios

Today I am making two different kinds of ribbon rose earrings for the Gwen Studios design team. I am using sheer ribbon from Gwen Studios in red and pink. These would make great gifts and just in time for Valentine’s Day. The pink earrings have a stud back and the red rosebud earrings are dangles.

I am working with 7/8″ sheer Gwen Studios ribbon that can easily be found at Walmart. (links at the bottom of the post)

Pink Ribbon Rose Earrings

The ribbon rose earrings in pink are made by free forming the ribbon into a rose, this is better described in the video tutorial below. The addition of green satin ribbon is used for leaves. Everything is held together with Farbri-tac glue and a binder clip while drying. I used a needle to move the ribbon around – there is no sewing needed.

After the roses have dried completely and the excess ribbon is cut away, I used gel Super Glue to adhere the stud earring backs to the roses.

Red Ribbon Rosebud Earrings

The red rosebud earrings use a different technique to create the buds. The ribbon is folded and held together with double-sided tape. This process is explained in the video tutorial below.

To make the bud earrings, I needed a pair of scissors, lighter, flat nose pliers with wire cutter, green craft wire, and double-sided tape. I also used folded paper to wrap the ribbon around which is explained in the video below.
