Bias Tape Rosette Ring

I’ve seen a couple of simply gorgeous fabric rosette rings recently. One style from the Queen of The Anthro knock-offs, Bev, over at Flamingo Toes:

Arent’t these gorgeous?! And I also love this one from Vanessa at V and Co :
These were on my mind when I was at JoAnn’s and found myself in the rick rack/ bias tape aisle. Light bulb! Bias tape is already in strip form and wouldn’t that work? Let’s see:

Started with dark khaki Wrights Bias Tape ( 1/2”):

And a ring blank :
I didn’t cut a specific length of bias tape but worked right from the card planning to cut whenever my rosette was the size I wanted. Started with a knot at one end:

Put some hot glue in the middle and then start twisting gluing, twisting gluing:

When I liked the size I trimmed it. I thought about leaving it plain which would work but I can’t leave well enough alone! So I got a bead cap and pearl out of my stash:
Rosette, Finding, Pearl
Hot glued the bead cap to the rosette, and then the pear inside the bead cap and glued the whole thing to the ring blank:

And definitely go check out the tutorials that Bev and Vanessa have here and here!
