Default Anybody made a fleur de lis sculpture?

Hi ladies, I am passing a problem on to those more talented than myself! I have tried over and over again to come up with a fleur de lis shaped ribbon sculpture and just can't seem to do it! In my mind it makes sense and seems like it should be easy, but it never translates right in the ribbon. I know there are some uber talented ribbonistas on here and thought I would see what someone else could come up with. I'm also trying for a jester hat and/or a crown. All great symbols of Mardi Gras! My bows sell, but my sculptures sell better. Mardi Gras is the only holiday I have no sculptures for! I was also thinking of doing a small wreath like shape (the military braid one) out of brown and then glueing the purple green and gold sparkles on top. So many ideas and so little time!!! thanks, ladies!

I have tried many times and can never get it right. I have been trying to figure out what to do for Mardi Gras as well. Its a pain when you know what you want and just can't figure it out


Good luck.

PS- we are neighbors. I am right outside BR

I have an idea on how to do it, but I won't have time to try until at least Friday. I'll let you know how it comes out once I get a chance to try...

Would it help if you drew it out on paper, the size you want the finished product. Then laid your ribbon on top of it as you created?
Not sure it will help or even work.

That is a good idea. I might try that tonight.


I bought a fleur de lis clip like the one on the link so I could check it out but I still can't figure out how to do it right.
