Award Winning Accessories by Cyrus Vance

Yesterday you saw some of what we created.  Today, Cyrus will walk you through creating your Steampunk medals.

Step 1 cut small piece of ribbon.  Length is your choice.  Fold one end into a point and iron down to make a crease.  Step 2 cut a small piece of floral wire and twist to make a small loop in the middle. 
Step 3 fold the corners over the wire and glue down.   I used both fabric glue and E6000. 
Step 4 add a firm backing, suggest sheet styrene plastic. Glue plastic to back of ribbon, add more glue on plastic and fold over.
Step 5 glue pin bar onto back of ribbon.
Step 6 using a jump ring attach your medal or chosen accessory.

Prissy, Bella and I used grosgrain ribbon, sticks of brown floral wire, Fabri-Tac, E6000 and scrapbook accessories from 7 Gypsies, Making Memories and Tim Holtz.  We purchased everything at JoAnns, Archivers and our local hobby store.  Your local Michaels or Hobby Lobby may also carry what you need to create your own award winning accessories.
