Kissing Ball

Ball & Folded Roses
Step 1
What You Need

  • Foam ball
  • Moss
  • 10 inches of 1-inch wide-wired or unwired ribbon
  • Milliner's sharp size 10 needle
  • White quilting thread or beading thread
  • Scissors
  • Household wire cutters
  • Glue

Instructions

1. Cover a foam ball with moss.
2. Make folded roses with wired or unwired ribbon.
3. For the folded rose center, fold down the right end of the ribbon. Fold this end across itself.
4. Roll the ribbon into a cylinder (forming the flower center) and secure with stitches.
5. Fold the ribbon down on the right end so that the cylinder is horizontal and a 45-degree angle is created at the fold.
6. Fold the flower center down.
7. Roll the cylinder until the ribbon on the left becomes straight again. Secure with stitches.
8. Repeat the folding and rolling steps until the rose is the desired size.
9. Stitch the raw edge into the base of the rose.

Coiled Ribbon Roses
Step 2
What You Need

  • 10-inch lengths of 1-inch-wide wired ribbon
  • Milliner's sharp size 10 needle
  • White quilting thread or beading thread
  • Household wire cutters
  • Scissors
  • Pearl head pins
Instructions: 

1. If the ribbon is wired, remove the wire at the bottom edge by gently pulling it out. Add a running stitch from the upper edge down and across the bottom.
2. For the ribbon center, refer to the instructions of making folded roses.
3. Gather the remaining length of ribbon and secure the gathering with stitches.
4. Coil the ribbon on itself until all the ribbon is coiled. Stitch the end of the ribbon into the base of the rose.
Note: After the roses are attached to the ball, hang and embellish with ribbons and pearl head pins.

Sand Art

Create a work of art to remind you of sunny summer beach days! This is a simple craft that is appropriate for a wide range of ages. All you need is sand, food coloring, glue, and heavy card stock or construction paper. Put a small amount of sand in Ziplock plastic bags. Add a few drops of different colors of food coloring to each and shake and massage the bag until the sand is the desired color. Transfer the sand to a paper plate so that it can dry. Now use the glue and sand alternately to make a multi-colored picture or design. Allow to dry and hang! You can also create a sand greeting card by taking a 9"x12" piece of colored construction paper, folding it in half, writing your message in the inside fold, and then making your design on the front!
