Default Re: Ribbon artists ... is it hard to do?

I think besides woven headbands, the ribbon sculptures are my favs. They're just soooo cute and individual. It does take time, but with lots of practice and time you get a little faster. I don't sit down and make just one. If I'm doing ladybugs I do like 20-25 at a time, I cut our all my pieces, line my clips and then construct. Last time I did that man y I think it took a couple of hours including carding them, so I think that's pretty good. I also charge a little more than some people for mine-I usually don't go below $5.00~used to be no less than $6.00 but tough times were slowing sales and for the REALLY extravgant ones with bling and buttons I ask $7.
