When I saw this ribbon fish, I knew I would have to make it into another clip.
First, I gathered my supplies:
5/8 inch ribbon ~ I was going for a whimsical green and pink fish.
3/8 inch ribbon
metal hair clip
I removed the pressure part of the hair clip so that I could cover it with the 3/8 inch ribbon
Once the ribbon was glued, I returned the pressure piece.
Now for the fish ~ I twisted the ribbon to give the fish a mouth and a tail. I used the glue dots to keep to keep the mouth from shifting. Since I was using ribbon with print only on one side, I had to use another dot to keep the ribbon right side up.
I took a small piece of the thinner ribbon and wrapped it around the fold ~ a dot of glue on the back.
Now for the gills, I folded two small sections of the pink ribbon in half, and glued it to the top and bottom of the fish's head.
Time to add the fish to the clip ~ more hot glue to the clip, and attach.
I added the small eye and trimmed the tail (and got rid of the extra glue!)
My fun fish clip ~ can't wait to see how Layla likes it!
