HippieKender, that looks great.  I know what you mean about the pins, I am developing some awsome callus' on my thumb and fingers!

I bought a bunch of ribbon and some foam balls...I can't wait to try this out!

Just a quick question...in your pics you show doing only half the ball...dow we do all of the first sectio before moving on to the next color?

Yes, do all of one row befor moving to the next.  I just did half at a time for the photos.  So for the one in the pics, you would do the 4 pink pieces, then the 8 purplr pieces, the the 8 black pieces.  That would cover half the ball.  Then turn it over and do the same for the other half.  In hindsight I should have done it properly for the tute...
Hope I have been able to help you out Smiley and I would love to see what creations you make.

So pretty! The colours look great - it could be an all-year-round ornament.  The sheen of the ribbon and the geometric design are lovely.

So much to make, so little time!

I love these!! As soon as I saw them i knew they would be perfect to attach to my Christmas hampers this year!

I used 3in balls, and started with 1.5in ribbon (accidently bought wrong size Sad )... 1in definately easier to work with.

After making the first one, I couldnt help but experiment with different size ribbons and patterns!!

Thanks so much for the Tute, and here is a couple of pics of my baubles Smiley

(this one is my favourite Smiley

Merry Christmas x x

Wow, they all look great, but I too love the bottom one.  I love those little bits of red just peeping through between the white. Thanks for sharing them with us.  Smiley

I made one, too, but I used paper (sueded red and white vellum). I will post pictures as I'm able to (the computer with the working USB port is experiencing issues).  Just for the record, don't use vellum. It ends up being too stiff. Unfortunately, the Joann's I went to didn't have the sueded paper in white or green (my original color choice). They also didn't have ribbon in 1" width, which is why I switched to paper.  I may have to call Michaels to see if they have some.

Great I would love to see them.

Ribbons wider than 1" can be used, though you need to adjust the length to be twice the width...ie : 1.5" ribbon will be cut into 3" long pices.  check out this pic


the green and tartan one on the left above the black and white one was made with 3/4 " green ribbon and 1.5" tartan, it just means some repositioning of the pieces.
