Default Elephant Ribbon Sculpture

So I made some Alabama Crimson Tide flowers and would love to have an elephant to put in the middle. Does any one know of a tutorial for an elephant ribbon sculpture or someone who makes them?

Thanks!

Charissa

Here is a picture of one from etsy (not mine) and it looks like it would be easy to make. http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.138476154.jpg

Thanks! I have seen those at Walmart, but I am not really familiar with ribbon and was a bit nervous. I might try it though.

Talking Re: Elephant Ribbon Sculpture

Thanks for the Hancock tip but I think I am on to something? after google-ing til I was googly eyed lol I came across a set of clippies on ebay. So I tried my hand at making some just off the pic and this is what I came up with. The ones on ebay had the craft eyes but I used fabric paint (had it on hand literally) I was thinking about making a tut for them it wasn't that hard to do and after piddling with the ribbon it took maybe 10min or less to put it together. Let me know if they look horrible or if I should do the tut. keep in mind this is a pic of the "rough draft" very first one lol


P.S. the little bit of paint on the top right isn't supposed to be there lol
