[NEW PRODUCT] Working with ribbons to create floral happiness

If you think you can do it, do it.

I was approached by a friend of mine to create baby, elastic headbands for her niece.  While I do have experience working with felt and fabric to create flowers, she wanted them to be made out of ribbon.  I said, "Sure!  I can do it."

I started off small...really small.  1.25" as requested.  And then I started getting more comfortable cutting and folding each petal.  A few weeks later, I gifted another friend with a set of headbands for her flower girl (also her daughter).  Confidence increasing.

Taking on a new project is an opportunity to test your skills, patience, and creativity.  If the results are positive, then you have a new product to sell!  Money, money, money, mmooooonnnaaaayyyy.

From a request to a new LeilaBel Anne item for sale, trying something new is not only fun, but could help increase your revenue.  Ribbon accessories will soon be added to my Etsy shop.
