Kanzashi Flower Brooch 2

The new order for the ribbon supplies is on the way … Can’t wait to play around with more colours 😉

I find it very therapeutic to do these ribbon brooches…. It calms my mind and seeing the end product brings a kind of satisfaction …  kind of reaching a sense of self-achievement.

Anyway, a few days ago I tried my hand at making a new Kanzashi petals….

Here are the few I’ve made 😉

The petals above are slightly more rounded . Below is a comparison of the different Kanzashi petals I’ve done so far.

With the new supplies of ribbon coming in soon … I’ll be able to do more with different colours and patterns.  I did try a rose bud once … had to try out twice before I got it right and I find that doing the rose pattern is more difficult and challenging.  Definitely going to try my hand at it again … but not so soon cos I know that I need to be in good health to do the roses …. doing the roses tax my mind instead of calming me down hehehe …  I suppose I found my own nemesis in the roses hihi 😛

These brooches are simply fantastic as a gift …. Recently, I gave two and placed them in a very nice box as a birthday gift for my RO.  She loved them! 🙂

The brooches can both be worn as a pin for headscarf and also as an adornment while wearing a jacket or formal dress.

I simply love them 🙂

    • I’m glad you like it Sri 🙂
      and yes for the ribbon, you have to burn the edges with a lighter … kalo tak nanti the ribbon will fray at the sides.
      Sri, go to youtube, type in ribbon flower and see the hows and tips given k … busu belajar dari youtube jer and if I can do it, you surely can my dear 😉
      Happy crafting soon *muahh*
