Wired Ribbon Rose Video Tutorial by: True :D

Hello!
I did this tutorial for the Really Reasonable Ramblings blog but I thought I would post it here too.

Today I am going to show you how to make a quick and easy rose out of wired ribbon.
Don't laugh at the video...it was my first attempt!
I will get better with practice...I hope! LOL!

You can use the rose on any project but I used an empty coffee can. 

It can now be used for a gift box or a trinket tin. You could also do a new, full can as a sweet gift. Wouldn't that be a great disguise for instant coffee setting on someone's desk?
It has a red lid so that kind of dictated my color scheme.
The red glitter paper was purchased at Hobby Lobby and is by Craft n Craftin. It is Wine Red glitter cardstock. The DP is a scrap piece that I can not remember who makes. If you recognize it, please let me know. I wanted to tie the rest of the can in with the rose so I added the same Wired Sheer Iridescent Red/Purple, and Moss Green organzas to the sides. Of course you know that the ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbons!
 I ran them through some pearl ribbon slides. I also added a pearl hat pin to the rose so it can be worn as a corsage if the receiver so chooses.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
Please leave a comment and let us know if you found this helpful.
Thanks and Hugs,

this is a clever way to disguise the coffee on a desk so as to add to decor rather than visual clutter! i love the wire rose and your tutorial gets a+ for a beginner but then again i have never even attempted one, i imagine it is harder than it looks!

WOW!!! Love this!!! A friend of mine is getting married next May and she's doing black and red for colours (concert themed sneding out concert tickets instead of invites, Press releases instead of save the Dates etc etc etc) and she has black and red rose petals for the flower girls to throw and is putting some red branches in black and red sand in vases on the tables and doing little tags on strings for people to write wishes, jokes etc on at every table and these are going to be perfect to either scatter on the table or stick to the branches/vases or maybe both. Thanks SO much!!!

Thank you so much for the tutorial. I always wondered what I would use wired ribbon for on cards and scapbook pages. No all I have to do is remember it after I buy some. So many times I buy something then completely forget what I got it for, LOL...I know that never happens to you :o)
