Red Rooster Fair Ribbon

I don’t know if the fair ribbon trend has left the building, but I am still in love with them!  Here is a vintage-inspired “Red Rooster Fair Ribbon” and a few instructions so you can make your own.



The supplies I used are as follows:

2 cut or punched cardstock circles. – Tissue paper trim from a Claudine Hellmuth papercrafting kit. – A Red/Black Dotted Label sticker from Jenni Bowlin Studio. –  A Red Doily Flower from Jenni Bowlin Studio. – A Rooster Flatback from Jenni Bowlin Studio. – Ribbon scraps. – Adhesive: Glue Dots, mounting squares and a tape runner.


Step 1 – Gather the tissue paper trim into a circle to make a rosette and knot the thread.  If you don’t have a pre-made tissue trim, you could cut a length of tissue paper, crepe paper or ribbon and sew a running stitch along one side and gather.

Step 2 – Adhere  a cardstock circle with glue dots or other adhesive to the back of the gathered tissue paper rosette. 

Step 3 – Layer the dotted label sticker, red doily flower and flatback pin on the front of the rosette.


Step 4 – Cut varied lengths of ribbon, arrange and adhere to back of rosette with mounting squares or other adhesive.  I left the crinkles in my ribbons to give a more vintage feel, but you could iron or steam yours flat.

Step 5 – Adhere another cardstock circle with a tape runner or other adhesive to sandwich the ribbons and finish off the back.


A fair ribbon like this would look  lovely on a scrapbook layout, as part of a craft project, on a gift package or framed as a home decor item.


  I hope you will love making fair ribbons as much as I do.  Get creative and have fun with the supplies you have on hand.  The possibilities are endless!
