Welcome to DAY ONE of the Disney Inspired Ribbon Sculpture Patterns. During each day of the week (except weekends) I'll be posting the pattern of a Disney Inspired Princess Ribbon. Fun, huh?! Today we're starting out with Rapunzel. Get all the tutorials for all the Disney Princesses as I post them in the link below:
no-fray spray (or hair spray)
Start out with these lengths of ribbon:
Flesh colored: 3", 2¼ "
light purple: Two pieces of 2"
purple: 2", Five pieces of 4½ "
pink: ½ "
yellow: 2", and two pieces of ribbon wrapped around two pencils each equal 6" of twisted ribbon
Step 1: Roll 3" piece of flesh colored ribbon into a circle and glue. This will be your head.
Step 2. Cut 2¼ " piece at each end so that the tips are rounded. Spray with no fray spray.
Step 3: Glue 2" piece of purple to the back of your body.
Step 4: Wrap 2" piece of purple around front of body and then glue other end in back.
Step 5: Glue arms onto body's back. Then take a 2" piece of light purple and glue to back of one side of an arm.
Step 6: Wrap light purple around front of arm like you did in Step 4 and glue. Repeat with other 2" piece of light purple on other side of arm. This should be your completed body and sleeves.
Step 7: Glue one 4½ piece of purple ribbon inside the purple body.
Step 8: Glue other 4½ pieces on top of the previous piece, fanning each piece out.
Step 9: Turn body over and take each piece of long purple ribbon and glue to back. Start with the middle and work your way out.
Step 10: Make the curls. The picture below is the ribbons I used for the "Brave" ribbon sculpture but just follow the same steps with the yellow colored ribbon. Simply hot glue or tape one end of ribbon to a pencil or any other kind of long stick and wrap around then hot glue or tape other end to stick. For the Rapunzel hair I wrapped the yellow ribbon around the pencil so that the entire wrapped portion was 6" long. I repeated with another 6" on another pencil. Then put them in the toaster oven for about 5 minutes on 200 degrees. When done, take out of toaster oven and unwrap. The ribbon should be sufficiently curly.
Step 11: Take your ½ " of pink ribbon and make triangle cuts in the top, bottom and sides. Spray with no fray spray.
Step 12: Glue to front.
Step 13: Glue one end of the 2" piece of yellow ribbon to the top of the head.
Step 14: Roll back and glue so that you have a circle.
Step 15: Press down and glue in center.
Step 16: Cut 6" piece of curled ribbon in half and glue to back of head.
Step 17: Take other piece of 6" ribbon cut in half and glue to back of head on other side. Repeat for other 6" piece.
Step 18: Glue back of Rapunzel to the side of a headband. Voila! You're done. And your daughter has one cute ribbon Rapunzel to wear to school;)
