Whaaaaaw!!! This is awesome!!! <3
I did this but because I haven't any hot glue I sew this... I am soon tired now, but it was really worth the effort!!!! <3 

That's the result! sta.sh/010atz8cxkui

I love it, but where is the tutorial for adding those lovely beads?

how thick should the ribbon be? Will it work with any ribbon?
Corselia's avatar
you can use pretty much any ribbon you want but if your looking to use a snap clip or aligator clip i would use a 1 inch (width) ribbon. maybe 1 1/2.

These are absolutely adorable! I can't wait to make some :) One question though, how do you keep the ends of the ribbon from fraying? Is it a particular type of ribbon that doesn't fray? Any I've had always does :/
Corselia's avatar
you use 'no fray' liquid on the ends. you can find a bottle in the sewing section. it works pretty well and i use it for my ribbons and kanzashi projects.
