And don’t let your mind stop there! What other animals can you think of to create using ribbon rolls? What about other types of ribbons as well?

And play with the colors too! Who says that a turtle has to be green? The one above is pink with white polka dots! So is this butterfly. Make lions purple or horses yellow. Change the colors of your thinking and let that creativity flow. Animal possibilities are endless.

Add your own flair with googly eyes or other accessories. Use buttons, lace, rhinestones or glitter; whatever your heart desires to truly make in your own.
