Hi! My name is Regina and I am the owner of Passion Bows. :)

I don’t blog (although I LOVE to read them), but I do have a Facebook page and would love to
have you over.

I was so excited to be asked to show you something that I make and almost immediately
thought of my popular Minnie Mouse Ribbon Sculpture.

I chose all my ribbon from The Ribbon Retreat, of course. ;)

This ribbon sculpture is so easy to make and it looks so fun on a bow or by itself on a clip.

~ Minnie Mouse Ribbon Sculpture Tutorial ~

Here’s what you need:

Glue Gun
⅜” black Solid Grosgrain Ribbon cut to the following lengths for the head:

You’ll also need ⅜” Swiss Dots Ribbon for the bow:

You can use what ever color and style you’d like for the bow. I just did mine to match the rest of
the bow :)

Now for the instructions. After I cut and heat sealed each piece (which BTW you can use a
lighter or one of these fancy, dancy heat sealing tools) I hot glued them together. For the body,
starting with the small one first, I hot glued it in a circle.

Then I glued the middle one to the small one. Here’s a tip: it’s easier if you glue the first piece
to the top of the small circle then wrap it around in a circle. It should look like this:

Finally, glue the longest piece. And here is the body:

Do the same with the ears…

and put them on the sides with the ribbon ends on the body and you have Mickey!

Now if you want Minnie, just take the other piece of ribbon and make a bow.

Glue it on the front (or the side, whichever you prefer).

Again, you can stick it on a lined clip and it would look SO cute!

You could put it on a bow! This is my favorite and most popular way.
